While investments in content marketing continue to grow, research from SiriusDecisions finds 60-70 percent of all content produced by B2B marketing departments sits unused.
According to Schwartz, “Marketers have traditionally limited their definition of content marketing to creating content assets. Uberflip is in a unique position to help them turn standalone content assets into personalized content experiences in a way that builds engagement and revenue.”

Randy Frisch, Uberflip Co-Founder, President and CMO, said, “Marketing strategies like ABM, Personalization and Sales Enablement all hold incredible opportunity and promise, but as they gain prominence, marketing leaders are left struggling to adopt and integrate them in a cohesive way.”

Jonathan Seeber, General Partner at Updata Partners, said, “We see eye to eye with Uberflip’s vision and are confident that the company is merely scratching the surface with the value it brings to marketers—particularly those in mid-sized and enterprise businesses. We are very impressed with Uberflip’s leadership and talent as well as the founders’ thoughtful and efficient growth strategy to date.”
