Mike Maynard on Marketing Numbers, Content and Growth through Acquisition

View descriptionShare

Gavin is joined by PR and marketing specialist, Mike Maynard, the Managing Director/CEO of the Napier agency, and host of the Marketing B2B Technology Podcast.

Mike discusses the ways in which the needle has shifted dramatically for marketing in the wake of lockdown, and how this has allowed for sales specialists to focus in narrowly upon tighter demographics.

  • Since lockdown, marketing has become far more of a front-end component in sales, enabling a greater ability to target specific niche customers.
  • It’s far more valuable to focus on a smaller number of incoming customers, than it is to attempt to appeal to “vanity metrics”. Site traffic means little is each enquiry cannot be effectively transitioned.
  • We must never underestimate the value of the customer journey – the route by which a potential client goes from knowing nothing about you, to becoming a customer.
  • It is not enough to simply know how to market to a company. We must also recognise the need to market to a specific person within that organisation – the buyer, so to speak – everyone involved in decision making will have different needs.


‘I believe in solving problems rather than overcoming challenges’

‘The first thing I see is people just trying to make all the numbers move up’

‘If you can get a higher conversion rate, you’re going to get a better return’

It’s way too easy to get hung up on the tool’
