Do You Use Videos in your Lead Nurturing Campaigns?

66% of Marketers use Video in their Lead Nurturing Campaigns

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.
