One of the best parts of Dreamforce is getting to meet so many pros who are changing how their companies do business and engage customers. This year’s event was a great reminder of all the passion for sales and marketing innovation that exists within the Infer community of folks who we have the pleasure of growing with and working alongside everyday. These innovators are helping to build and align their businesses using predictive intelligence, and many of them joined us at our booth to share how they leverage Infer. They talked about how they’ve reinvented the way their companies identify and target their best prospects to increase conversion rates, boost average deal size, optimize marketing spend, and more.
When we decided to celebrate the Top Predictive Sales and Marketing Innovators, it was hard to narrow it down to just 25. However, the following group of Infer customers are truly leading the pack when it comes to predictive sales and marketing. Each of these predictive practitioners has their own unique story of how they’re driving real and tangible value across their businesses, and they share a spirit of innovation and dedication to building data-driven sales and marketing organizations.
In no particular order, please meet Infer’s Top 25 Predictive Sales and Marketing Innovators of 2016:
We’ll be sharing more about these innovators and their companies on Twitter in the coming weeks, and we’d love for you to chime in with your own sales and marketing success stories, as well as who inspires YOU!
