Incentive compensation represents the potential of delivering optimal sales results. But with up to 60% of sales reps’ income coming from incentive comp, it is crucial to get this right. Our study data has shown that ineffective compensation structures can lead to disengaged reps, high turnover, money left on the table, and low margins. The way we have designed and managed incentive compensation plans in the past may inhibit the sales force and prevent the business from scaling at the needed rate. Modeling and planning quickly become too complex for a spreadsheet-driven exercise.

Every photo tells a story. But for furniture manufacturers and retailers, the stories that your product photos tell can vary greatly in impact and effectiveness. With the rise of high-quality 3D modeling, furniture sellers using only 2D images to sell their products are not showing their offerings in the best possible light. Just as important, they’re missing out on a valuable opportunity to engage, interact, and connect with consumers.
Recent advances in 3D modeling and visualization tools have exciting implications for how sellers can better showcase a wide range of products—and help boost both customer engagement and overall sales.
Marketing automation is quickly becoming a competitive necessity for most organizations. According to a recent Demand Gen Report, 42% of b2b marketers identified marketing automation as the tool they plan to test or deploy in 2016—beyond predictive analysis, account-based marketing, lead nurturing, and attribution modeling.
Download this white paper to discover how to use marketing automation to attract, engage, and convert buyers across all marketing channels by streamlining workflow, monitoring social, and managing content.
It is important to understand the different business situations where traditional predictive analytics can be best applied and where anticipatory analytics may be a more appropriate approach to solve the business problem. One is not necessarily superior to the other – it’s about which methodology is best utilized in solving the specific business problem. Conventional response modeling, revenue potential modeling, wallet share analysis, traditional risk scoring and other analytic practices will always be important tools for businesses far-and-wide, but as more companies focus on analytics to inform growth, they’ll have employ the right team and identify the right partners to work with in order to successfully leverage anticipatory analytics to gain a competitive advantage.
Looking forward, we anticipate anticipatory analytics playing an important role in your future. Download this white paper to learn more.

Optimizing incentive compensation: aligning what you say with how you pay
CSO Insights’ ICPM study* found that 69 percent of organizations use three or more metrics to build their sales compensation plans, but modeling and planning this sales strategy can quickly become too complex as a spreadsheet-driven exercise. It is crucial to get these incentive compensation structures right, because sales reps receive up to 60 percent of their income from incentive comp.
In this white paper, we discuss the disconnect between sales behavior and incentive compensation structure and provide recommended steps towards optimizing your compensation plan.

The focus of modern business intelligence has been self-service; pushing data into the hands of end users more quickly with more accessible user interfaces so they can get answers fast and on their own. This has helped alleviate a major BI pain point: centralized, IT-dominated solutions have been too slow and too brittle to serve the business.
What has been masked is a lack of innovation in data modeling. Data modeling is a huge, valuable component of BI that has been largely neglected. In this webinar, we discuss Looker’s novel approach to data modeling and how it powers a data exploration environment with unprecedented depth and agility.
Topics covered include:
• A new architecture beyond direct connect
• Language-based, git-integrated data modeling
• Abstractions that make SQL more powerful and more efficient

From the information provided in the interviews, Forrester has constructed a Total Economic Impact (TEI) framework for those organizations considering investing in OneLogin. The objective of the framework is to identify the benefits, costs, flexibility, and risk factors that affect the investment decision.
Forrester employed four fundamental elements of TEI in modeling OneLogin: benefits, costs, flexibility options, and risks. Forrester took a multistep approach to evaluate the impact that OneLogin can have on the Organization (see Figure 2). Specifically, we:
› Interviewed OneLogin marketing, sales, and product management personnel, along with Forrester analysts, to better understand the value proposition for OneLogin.
› Conducted an in-depth interview with the Organization’s senior application engineer and its supervisor of IT security to obtain data with respect to costs, benefits, and risks.
› Constructed a financial model representative of the interviews using the TEI metho
There is a great misconception that the purpose of attribution modelling is to arrive at a singular, concrete truth; however, the reality is much more nuanced. Attribution modeling is actually an ongoing process of improving how we measure marketing’s impact in order to improve our decision making over time.
There are a number of attribution principles that still confuse marketers:
• Why is attribution a process and not an end state?
• Why is making small steps forward really better than doing nothing?
• Why does the perfect attribution model not exist?
• What makes attribution an ROI investment and not a cost center?
With the many attribution myths, challenges, and philosophies in mind, AdRoll and Econsultancy have partnered for a second year in a row to produce The State of Marketing Attribution 2017. This time around we’ve broaden our focus beyond Europe to include content that also covers North America and Asia-Pacific.
This report goes in-depth on the current adoption levels of marketing attribution, the confidence in its usage, and the effectiveness of companies’ attribution methods worldwide. You will gain a better grasp on the required skills to succeed at attribution.
