The workplace is shifting. Expectations to produce more with less and in less time are on the rise and employees are overwhelmed. The very technologies that once improved our workflows are now overtaking the workplace and multiple applications have infiltrated to help people better manage their jobs.
Workfront knows these conditions are stressful for working professionals and is on a mission to enable teams to accomplish more with less—using one application across multiple functions.
To realize this, Workfront set out to share its message with potential clients and show the value in the technology it provided. Its strategy was to communicate this message full funnel with webinars as the core component of its omnichannel approach. With this new strategy, Workfront scaled quickly, producing or sponsoring roughly 250 events and webinars per year. But it needed a way to sustain this growth globally and continue reaching its varying set of targets.

“Since shifting our content strategy and mapping webinars across the buyer’s journey, registration numbers have gone way up and we’ve seen a 52% increase in qualified sales opportunities influenced, which primarily is due to the middle and the bottom of the funnel webinars we produced.”
