The Mx Approach to Demand Generation
At The Mx Group, we believe the future of demand requires aligning brand and demand efforts to create a holistic customer experience. That’s why when we build demand generation programs, we bring our brand strategy expertise to every marketing effort. To sustainably drive demand, marketers must leverage emotional and rational storytelling, create visibility online and offline, balance short- and long-term KPIs, and deliver them in the only way that matters — across a connected customer experience.
More Than Lead Management
Lead management is a huge part of what we do in any demand generation campaign, but it’s only part of the story. Lead generation turns demand into sales, but focusing only on leads through gated content limits your reach. Demand for your products and services starts with education through a marketing automation program, digital marketing, telemarketing, content marketing and a range of other tactics. That’s why it’s important to invest your marketing dollars now in B2B demand generation strategies that strike a balance between creating demand and leads — driving more revenue for you.

Q. What is demand generation in B2B?

Q. What is demand generation vs. lead generation?

Second, ensure your B2B demand generation agency starts with a solid B2B marketing strategy. Driving the wrong audience into the funnel will not convert into increased revenue. Finally, look for client testimonials and ask your network about their experiences with the agency. Does the demand generation agency deliver impact? Is the agency able to measure its impact?
