There’s a perception (among some) in the marketing community that campaigns and tactics should be strategized and executed differently whether your organization focuses on B2B or B2C audiences. Contrary to this belief, results published in a recent Forrester study indicate that B2B-focused organizations need to let go of this idea.
Buying journey interactions have soared from 2019 to 2021, according to this study, with “online research, conversations with providers, and other steps to learn about offerings or vendors jumped nearly 60%.”
“The critical nature of business purchases during the pandemic – along with people working from home and having more time to conduct research – led to greater scrutiny and due diligence of those purchases.” – Forrester, How The Pandemic Transformed B2B Buying
What does this mean to you as a B2B marketer? It means that digital experiences and campaigns must provide your buyers the experiences they’re used to as consumers.
A Real-World B2B Marketing Success Story
What if a global technology brand could grow an audience of tech-savvy influencers and increase conversions? Qualcomm, a well-known technology leader, realized that it needed to provide an enhanced digital experience in order to maintain its competitive edge. Creating this digital experience meant the company needed to address some fundamentals, such as ensuring its customer database and marketing automation platform were aligned to identify and monitor prospects at each stage of the buying journey.
We helped Qualcomm on its digital transformation to build a unified digital experience and personalized buyer’s journey with Adobe Marketo and expanding to the full Adobe stack.
