Use G2 Intent in Journey Stages

RollWorks Journey Stages tracks the progression of your accounts along their buying journey and helps you plan and measure the impact of your marketing and sales program investments. You can use G2 Intent data, in combination with other data sources, to define Journey Stages and create an account progression framework specific to your business.

If you have a Starter Package

We suggest editing the default Journey Stage called 'Engaged' and customizing it so that it tracks Accounts that are ready to be sent to Sales based on engagement and/or intent signals, including G2 Buyer Intent.

 

If you have a Standard, Professional, or Ultimate package

We suggest creating a new stage called Sales Ready and customizing it so that it tracks Accounts that are ready to be sent to Sales based on engagement and/or intent signals, including G2 Buyer Intent.
