NEW YORK, June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's digital age, the buyer is in control. B2B clients and prospects are seeking information to inform their buying decisions from a variety of channels and online platforms. This digital disruption has resulted in an urgent need for a marketing strategy that can engage and target prospects, and drive actions that produce results.

Ken Wincko, Senior Vice President of Marketing at PR Newswire, will be presenting a webinar titled "Revving the Revenue Engine: PR Newswire's Secret to Demand Generation Success" with Marketo's Shyna Zhang that will discuss PR Newswire's innovative and sophisticated buyer-centric, multi-channel demand generation program on Tuesday, June 23 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.

"At PR Newswire, we have implemented a holistic seven step methodology to leverage an integrated mix of channels and content aligned with the buyer's journey," said Wincko.  "Our buyer-centric approach focused on continuous buyer activation enables us to effectively interact with buyers and provide personalized and exceptional experiences—no matter where or when they occur."

Following the success of the presentation at The Marketo Marketing Nation Summit 2015, Wincko's presentation will discuss how PR Newswire was able to:

  • Develop a channel-agnostic content approach to engage, nurture, and convert buyers throughout their journey
  • Optimize its Lead-to-Revenue Management process to increase conversion rates and surpass revenue forecast by 138%
