HERE IS A BRUTAL TRUTH ABOUT B2B MARKETING:
In the majority of companies, marketing is perceived as a lot of effort for little result. A waste of money. Sales teams don’t believe in marketing because they simply don’t see the marketing impact on sales and revenue.
They think that marketing is all about visiting trade shows and conferences, designing slides, working on branding, and spreading the content on social media — without helping them generate high-quality leads and closing more deals.
As a result, every single team meeting ends with marketers going red-faced when sales and executives ask:
“WHERE are the leads?”
Have you ever been in these shoes?
If yes, you know what’s going to happen next.
You become an order taker getting tasks from sales and executives, and limit marketing campaigns to:
- Gated e-books to get contacts that are transferred to sales as “leads”
- Landing pages that promote demo calls without giving an idea of what the product is all about, price, use cases, etc.
- Writing scripts and setting up automated cadences for SDRs
- Producing salesy content about product features and publishing company news that delivers 0 value to your market
- Webinars that are sold as educational events but in reality are pure product pitches
You know how lousy it feels and that this “marketing” is doomed, but you’re blamed for poor performance.
You realize that you are burning out your market, but you can’t stop because this is the only way to not get red-faced during team meetings.
You understand that marketing should be done differently and try to present the ideas, but they get shut down in the process.
And the worst thing is that you start questioning your credibility and ability to deliver.
“In just 1 week, the Full-Funnel Strategy course revolutionized how we look at complex B2B sales at Bothrs. I’ve managed to make myself absolutely irreplaceable for my company. Not only that, I’ve positioned myself as a coach and support for people in sales and for the people in our spin-offs.
Instead of being pigeonholed as marketer, I’m also very involved in the building of the sales operations (from outreach sequences to building sales pipelines and the buying committee nurturing).
Allowing me to grow into a true Full-funnel marketer. Normally, our founders do the strategic stuff mostly between the two of them, but now that one is on leave, I’ve been asked to replace him in the quarterly strategy week. Meaning, I’ve been trusted to help make decisions on the highest level.”

You can spend hours learning from thought leaders about demand generation, account-based marketing, content distribution, performance marketing, but before any of these programs will work for you, here is one thing that should be fixed (or developed from scratch):
“This is a guided program that helps you build and improve your current marketing approach in a very hands-on way. Thanks to the videos and templates, this is something we’ll be able to use and iterate on in the long term, and it allows you to follow the program at your own pace. “

NOW, STOP FOR A MOMENT AND ASK YOURSELF
DO I KNOW:
What market segments should we focus on to grow revenue?
Who are our ideal customers? How do they buy, and why do they buy from us?
What value propositions might resonate with our ideal customers and differentiate us from the competition?
What marketing programs should be launched to create awareness, attract attention, educate & nurture our target market and create a demand for our product?
How should we measure the efficiency of our marketing to make sure we are running the right programs and not stopping them too early?
INTRODUCING: THE B2B MARKETING STRATEGY PLAYBOOK
Since 2013, we (Andrei Zinkevich & Vladimir Blagojevic) have worked with 100+ B2B tech and service-based companies from the United States and Europe that have high ACV (average contract value) and long sales cycles.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“After two months of collaboration withFullfunnel.io, we started selling to the new, most profitable segment, got an investment and a renewed enthusiasm in our team. “
“I’ve invited Andrei to help our team to develop a marketing strategy and develop a lead generation system. Andrei helped us to define the most promising market segments, narrow our positioning, and define a value proposition.
As well, we learned our key clients buying and decision-making processes and figured out how to influence them. We switched to an account-based marketing model, which helped us to generate several sales opportunities with target accounts.
Andrei orchestrated pilot campaigns and helped us to create BOFU content (proposals, case studies, landing pages). In the end, we implemented a client success process that helped us to regularly learn more about our customers, track their satisfaction, and find opportunities to expand our collaboration.“
CEO @Glorium Technologies
“Marketing was a mystery to us. We were getting referrals, and our company was slowly growing, but we didn’t feel confident that our pipeline won’t dry up at any moment. We were also positioned as experts in a specific technology, and as time passed, this space became more and more commoditized.
With Andrei’s help, we managed to change our positioning within a few months of working
together, which led to a complete makeover of our sales materials and processes. Something I thought would take us much longer to achieve.
Although we didn’t kick off any new inbound campaigns, these changes alone got us to the point of 50% growth in our MRR over the last six months.“
“We had the double-edged sword experience in working with Andrei through the pandemic, meaning we had lots of time to work on the different steps he was giving us, but we’re only just now preparing to share it with the world.
I can share some of the more intangible effects that have already been seen, better engagement with our content, more clarity, and those glimpses have been super encouraging as we continue forward.“
CEO @Globe Guides
“I had the pleasure of being mentored by Andrei when our company was developing a new account-based marketing strategy. He provided our team with all the know-how we needed to successfully re-design our marketing and sales processes, improve the success rate of our campaigns, and provide our customers with a much better experience throughout their entire buyer’s journey.
His expertise is really impressive and his inputs were priceless.
In just a couple of months, I feel like I gained way more knowledge than any degree in marketing could ever provide me with.“
