The evolving role of the B2B Chief Marketing Officer

The role of a B2B chief marketing officer is becoming more and more precisely defined. Why? Because B2B marketing is all about explanation and ROI. B2B content is proliferating, yet becoming a necessity for demand generation. And the increasing complexity of B2B sales and marketing technology stipulates that your leader understand it, and use it effectively.

As a result of these and other changes, these are today’s challenges for a B2B CMO:

  • Sales and marketing technology is integrating rapidly. Consequently, this requires specific skillsets to marry your sales and marketing automation with revenue growth.
  • Bolt-on applications that add hundreds of important marketing functions are proliferating.  This imposes the need for your CMO to have technical skills and work closely with IT.
  • B2B content has proliferated. And a lot of it is bad. The B2B CMO must be a creative thinker who can constantly replenish the company’s marketing and sales content. Keeping it fresh, relevant and timely is a challenge.
