I have been thinking for a while about how I could find data that would show what we already suspected. LinkedIn to the rescue!
5 months ago, I used LinkedIn's search tool and took the counts by seniority level for profiles that mention Eloqua as a part of their resume (you can get counts by looking at the premium filter results, though you must upgrade to get the actual profiles). Today, I took those counts again and checked the results.
First of all, I found that a whopping 5,539 professionals are currently listing Eloqua on their online resume. Not only that, in the last 5 months alone, the number of top managers (Directors, VPs and CxOs) for whom Eloqua has played a role in their career has grown 39%... that's 120% annualized growth!
Now, I am not sure if this means that Eloqua customers are getting promoted, or if more top brass are bringing Eloqua into their career mid-flight, but either way it's a great motivator and an astounding rate of growth. Maybe you can let me know: has Eloqua helped you meet your career goals?
