Infographic: 4 Steps to Launch a B2B Programmatic Campaign

According to research from Adweek and Dun & Bradstreet, almost 70% of B2B marketers plan on increasing their programmatic spending in 2017.

Here’s a helpful infographic on 4 Steps to Launch a B2B Programmatic Campaign, brought to you in conjunction with our partner Neustar.

4 Steps to Launch a B2B Campaign Program

Step 1: Strategic Profiling

Before you launch your first B2B programmatic ad buy, you first want to establish the profile of the ideal company. Your best bet is to go back to your internal reports and figure out which customers have 1) purchased most often, 2) generated the most revenue, and 3) have purchased most recently. You have now established a list of your best customers.

Step 2: Intelligent Targeting

Analyze the list of your top customers to determine telling firmographics. What industries do they represent? How large are the organizations? Are there regional attributes? You might need to add some of these metrics to your database. If so, the Dun & Bradstreet Workbench Data Optimizer can help enhance your data by adding firmographic data to your accounts.

Step 3: Account Analysis

Now that you have an idea of the types of companies you are going to target, it’s time to focus on the people at those companies. Did you know that an average of 5.4 people are involved in B2B decision making? Who are they? Speak to your sales team to better understand the purchasing dynamics within your profile accounts. Create a list of departments and titles that you need to touch in order to close the sale.

Step 4: Personalization

Once you identify the people to target, you will need to craft multiple messages. The message you deliver to the end user of your product might be very different from the message you deliver to the budget owner. Just as the messages need to be individualized, so too do the delivery channels. Where do each of your targets live? Are managers and directors going to an industry news site every day? Is a Vice President using a frequent flyer app often? Once you determine the message and the channel, you are good to go!

By doing this homework, you'll see how much better you utilize your Data Management Platform to optimize your B2B programmatic campaigns.
