If you’re a business owner, you don’t need to hear that you need a marketing plan.
What you may not know or not had a reason to believe until now: if your marketing strategy is developed by people that understand your business and executed effectively, marketing can take you much farther than even the best salespeople – though marketing is meant to align with the sales team and make selling easier. The result: maximum business value when it comes time to sell or pass your business on to the next generation of owners.
Marketing is a way to increase the value of your business – often more so than your sales team,… Continue Reading >>
Q&A with Innovaxis Founder and President Sean ParnellQ. What made you decide to make B2B marketing the focus of Innovaxis?
When I started in 1996 for a market research and consulting firm, all of our clients were B2B. We interviewed and researched their channel partners, customers and even competitors and reported on market sizing, brand share, new product development, pricing, channel programs, customer satisfaction, and competitive intelligence. We created strategies for our clients to grow based on this information and they did. I then went to work for Shure, an internet startup, and Bell + Howell in a product marketing, product development, and project management capacity.
As a result, B2B is where all my experience has been and,… Continue Reading >>
Effective marketing strategy, website development, and content creation do not have to take months. Many erroneously believe that’s what it takes because that’s what they’re used to, but there is a better, faster way.
Marketing agility isn’t just about working fast, it’s about creating and capturing demand generation to drive sales and increase business valuation – efficiently. This requires a team that works collaboratively, breaking down silos, and providing quick turnaround on strategy, content and digital marketing deliverables without sacrificing quality.
At Innovaxis, we pride ourselves on helping clients achieve amazing results, quickly, with a marketing approach that is collaborative, detail-oriented, disciplined, and accountable – allowing us to deliver faster than our clients ever thought possible without compromising quality.… Continue Reading >>
Business owners and marketing executives of business-to-business (B2B) companies face a major challenge: to dramatically increase lead generation and sales without having the right mix of marketing skills on their team.
They turn to marketing agencies for help, but spend a lot of money without getting results.
Custom and comprehensive marketing programs produce results by increasing demand generation for B2B clients because they take a holistic approach to all 4 Ps of marketing – product, placement (channels), pricing, and promotion.
Unlike what is very common in B2B marketing, where companies move from promotion to promotion without an overall strategy, it’s important to avoid “hit-and-run” marketing. Piecemeal marketing generates piecemeal results,… Continue Reading >>
Generate Breakthrough B2B Marketing Results with a Customized & Holistic Program
If your B2B marketing efforts generate more costs than leads, you’re not alone. Too many B2B owners, marketing directors and sales executives fall victim to a marketing strategy that isn’t crafted around the different needs of B2B enterprises. They spend a lot of money for generic programs or splashy products, and end up frustrated when the efforts don’t generate qualified leads or profitable growth.
That is why we offer clients a custom and holistic B2B-focused marketing program designed to produce measurable results and profitable growth, with strategies built around the needs and goals of your business.
Causes of Ineffective Marketing
Failure can take a variety of paths:
- Buying the empty promises of marketing agencies that lack expertise and experience around the unique requirements of B2B marketing efforts
- Buying shiny objects like marketing automation and other software that require a lot of time,
Grant audits, financial audits, program audits – the nonprofit world is full of these often arduous reviews – but when it comes to auditing your digital marketing, we can make it easy for you to undertake this critical step to ensure your website is pulling its weight. Learn why website audits are a critical step for nonprofits.
Many nonprofits have a website that was developed years ago and haven’t touched it since. As a result, digital marketing has fallen to the wayside for many 501(c)(3) organizations who are rightly focused on the reach, mission and impact of their organizations. We get it: with so much going on, it can sometimes feel as if you don’t have the time to make your website and digital communication a priority.… Continue Reading >>
Learn how your marketing compares with best practices, and how to increase B2B lead gen and sales by 30-300%
If you feel under-served by your marketing resources or would like a report card on their work, an Innovaxis marketing audit will uncover marketing gaps and reveal new opportunities to increase leads and sales.

As a former head of product management and working with so many clients that have been under-served by their so-called marketing “partner” over the past 14 years, I know what ineffective marketing looks like and how much it can hold you back.
How well does your marketing partner stack up with the following?
1. Being a True Marketing Partner vs. a Vendor
Does your marketing company actively bring new lead generation and thought leadership ideas to you on a regular basis? Do they meet with you on a regular basis and provide monthly reporting? Can they provide useful guidance on even beyond marketing?
2. Thinking Strategically vs. Opportunistically
Does your marketing company developed a comprehensive marketing plan for you every year that identifies the right combination of digital marketing,… Continue Reading >>
