7 Best Picks from Callbox’s Library for Your 2019 Summer Reading List

05/14/2019

I can’t wait to pick up David Kushner’s newest book The Players Ball. It tells the story of the bitter rivalry between two of the leading figures during the worldwide web’s early days, which eventually shaped the digital world as we know it today.
More interestingly, though, the book also (incidentally) sheds some light on the murky origins behind many of the things that we marketers know by heart today—display ads, PPC, paid subscriptions, online revenue models, conversion funnels, etc.—despite not strictly being a marketing book per se.
But if you’re looking for a great addition to your summer reading list that’s marketing-related, we got you covered. The Callbox team hand-picked seven titles from our marketing library. These free eBooks are perfect for expanding your marketing knowledge while enjoying a relaxing and thought-filled summer day.
Take your pick from this selection of Callbox’s in-depth and in-demand B2B marketing eBooks and whitepapers:

ABM Telemarketing Scripts for Cold Calling Key Software PersonasWith more and more B2B marketers adopting ABM strategies, an increasing number of companies are now looking for handy resources to help them succeed at account-based marketing.
With this eBook, we wanted to equip marketers with the tools, tips and tactics that help them effectively handle two key areas of ABM programs: phone outreach and persona targeting.
This resource includes:
  • Actual call scripts tailored for different personas in a typical software purchase process
  • Complete examples of buyer persona profiles for each decision maker role
  • Step-by-step guides and actionable tips for phone outreach

By the Numbers: Marketing Stats that Drive Top B2B Industries in 2019It’s certainly not news that the B2B marketing landscape is rapidly changing. But these changes impact each industry differently, and marketers need to take these differences into account.
That’s why late last year, we released the first edition of our industry insights compilation that covered nine key B2B verticals:
  • Cyber Security Software
  • B2B FinTech
  • IT Managed Storage
  • Cloud Solutions
  • Advertising / Marketing Agency
  • Healthcare
  • Management Consulting
  • Manufacturing and Distribution
  • Telecom
The eBook takes a deep dive into the trends and developments reshaping each of these industries. It also provides research-backed strategies and tactics to help marketers keep up with these changes.

Targeted B2B Marketing Handbook: Guide, Checklists and WorksheetsWith the onward march of data and technology, achieving the Holy Grail of marketing (to reach the right people in the right places at the right time with the right message) is finally close at hand, right?
Not exactly. A huge percentage of marketers still find it difficult to target, segment, and personalize their campaigns and strategies to match what B2B buyers want.
We published this free resource to help B2B marketers lay the foundations of a fully-functioning targeted marketing program. The eBook is packed with step-by-step guides, handy checklists, ready-to-use templates, and hands-on worksheets that cover the four key areas of a targeted marketing strategy:
  • Identifying and classifying potential buyers that have the biggest impact in the sales process
  • Aligning the sales funnel with customers’ buying journey
  • Finding the right combination of marketing channels for engaging prospects
  • Mapping content/messaging strategy to relevant stages of the customers’ purchase process

40 B2B Sales Email Templates for Every SituationAlthough not exactly an in-depth whitepaper, this downloadable resource is still a great way to learn from B2B email copies and templates that generated actual results.
To put together this compilation, We scoured the web for examples of effective B2B sales email copies backed by solid KPIs like opens, CTRs, reply rates, conversions, spam complaints, unsubscribes, etc. We also made sure that the template collection covers a wide range of B2B use cases:
  • Cold outreach
  • Follow-ups
  • Lead nurturing and engagement
  • Referrals
