Engage & Attract New Businesses
to your Product or Service
B2B (Business to Business) Marketing follows similar principles to consumer marketing or B2C (Business to Customer) as it's also known.
However, there is a difference, which usually comes down to cost. The B2B market involves a more considered purchasing cycle and longer sales process. Products and Services in a B2B marketplace can amount to a significant investment for the purchasing business. Business buyers will need a lot of convincing to part with their budget, which they need to ensure is spent wisely.
Things to note about B2B products
- B2B products or services may require significant investment.
- B2B products or services are often more complex.
- The evaluation and sales process can be much longer.
- There may be a longer purchase cycle, as in many cases approval is needed.
In B2B Marketing the lead is crucial, and nurturing that lead through a progressive sales funnel is vital to ensure conversion. Before the innovation of the internet, much of B2B marketing was done on the golf course, schmoozing clients or through cold calling targeted accounts. A salesperson would have the incentive of a commission to ensure they learnt about the target business, developed a trusting relationship with the client and were on hand when they were required, providing the right information at the right time.
B2B marketing has now evolved. Ensuring your marketing function flows naturally through to sales is essential. Some might say it's more important that the sales process itself.
As a team of highly experienced Digital Marketers, we are adept at generating new leads, qualifying those leads and building a rapport with the leads before handing them over to sales staff. Only then will a salesperson meet the prospect and close the sale.
