With the industry’s only opt-in Prospect-Level Intent™ data, TechTarget makes sure you don’t.

Find the opportunities you need

Just a few years ago, you might have turned to programmatic advertising to blanket your entire TAM. It’s a brute force approach – expensive, inaccurate or worse – and, of course, it’s relatively low-yield.

That’s why TechTarget supports more than 150+ online enterprise tech communities: To help you capture demand far more productively.

When our 29 million opted-in users need buying-decision guidance, they come to our sites – to research, learn and decide.

And that’s how we gain GDPR- and CCPA-compliant permission to deliver the actionable insights you need to break in.

The data set shown here comes from just two of the dozens of hyper-specific categories we track – Team Collaboration and Cybersecurity. (See the many more that only TechTarget can offer.)

Clients access this active demand via our Priority Engine™ platform.

And since the data’s at the person-level (and it’s GDPR/CCPA compliant), you’ll be able to take relevant targeted action immediately, without risk. You’ll instantly see how to better personalise your outreach – driving far higher productivity and yield. And…

Relevant personalisation drives conversion.

Pursue the real opportunities that are happening now

Now take another look at the geographic demand map.

Each dot represents a city or town with at least one opted-in individual on an active buying team.…

Some are researching Team Collaboration solutions; others, Cybersecurity. They light up when they’re researching to buy. They disappear quickly again when they’re done. If you miss these opportunities, you’re out of luck.

Because the data is so detailed, you can be confident these aren’t just news-driven surges. They’re real opportunities – collaborating teams of the actual people who are looking to solve real business issues.

TechTarget’s uniquely specific audiences deliver the precision you need to be far more productive across your go-to-market teams.

Now let’s zoom in closer to understand how to use this information for better Sales and Marketing results.

(Expand the sections below to learn more.)

Sales use cases

Let’s look at demand in a typical Sales territory, Australia. Based on their research activity in the Cybersecurity category, you can clearly see exactly which accounts to prioritise in your outreach each week.

It can be easy to ignore demand in the early stages – but here, by highlighting the changes in one regional account’s demand intensity over time, we’re showing just how important it is to prioritise your actions to get in early. If you wait too long, you’ll just be one more vendor among many.

To capitalise on an account like Commonwealth Bank of Australia, you’d want to see it early and engage it immediately. That’s the best way to create preference for your solution and to protect the opportunity from others who’ll be trying to break in after you. (Watch the whole sequence to see how Commonwealth Bank comes in and out of market.)

Develop breakthrough outreach

Next, let’s examine what these active buyers really care about – information at the person-level that only TechTarget can provide.

Watch how this next chart changes as interests in very specific topics shift from week-to-week. As a sales team, you want to leverage this person-specific intelligence into how you’re personalising your ongoing communications.

When you know exactly what’s resonating with your prospects at every moment, you have what you need to be more relevant in every interaction.

Only TechTarget provides this level of specificity.

Every week, they’re reading articles like these that you’d otherwise know nothing about. You can use this to match your value propositions to exactly what they’re looking for. To learn more about this type of content, click on the links in the table below.

Marketing use cases

Making ABM campaigns more effective

Starting regionally, let’s put ourselves in the shoes of an industry vertical account team and the ABM marketing that supports them. Here we’re showing Team Collaboration demand from only a small, highly specific list of top Financial Services accounts.

Below, we’re drilling into a single specific account. We’re comparing activity at the account in Team Collaboration to their interest in Cybersecurity. First, watch how the buyers’ journeys evolve across the different locations on the respective buying teams – granularity that only TechTarget can supply. To win more opportunities, you have to know where those buying teams are centred.

Note that the engagement patterns differ between the two tech categories. If you offer two different solutions, you’ll want to leverage this kind of category-specific detail to further strengthen your own engagement strategies.

Next, we’ll look at which members of the buying team are active and when. See that while specialist players appear consistently, senior titles pop in and out. Don’t get caught waiting only for signals from senior players that you could easily miss. Identify opportunities based on demand intensity and get in early with the core project team members, to influence them directly, so they’ll open doors for you. Only TechTarget can tell you who these people really are.
