Statistic Info

With sales cycles averaging between six and nine months, lead nurturing is becoming an even bigger priority for B2B marketers. According to Demand Gen Report’s 2017 Lead Nurturing & Acceleration Survey Report, nearly three quarters of B2B organizations said they are now delivering nurture campaigns on a weekly (38%) or every other week (36%) basis.

Nurture campaigns are also presenting a wider menu of offerings as well, with the majority average of 3-10 touches (68%). The most popular types of nurture campaigns, according to respondents, were early stage (cited by 75%), warm-up campaigns and lead qualification programs (both cited by 46%).

However, while marketers in 2016 said that their nurturing efforts were improving compared to 2015, results from this year’s survey showed a decline in how B2B companies view their nurture efforts.
