To grow a business today, modern marketing techniques are essential. Specifically, businesses need to generate more website visitors, convert them to leads, turn those leads into customers, and continuously analyze every step of the process.
B2B companies who create marketing that their prospects and customers love can sell more, keep their customers longer and be less reliant on price competition. If you are a marketer, there's good news and bad news about how you are perceived by the general public: The good news is that, according to recent polling, marketers are held in higher regard than lobbyists, car salespeople and members of Congress. That's a relief. The bad news is that marketers are held in lower esteem than stockbrokers, labor union leaders and, gasp, lawyers! Ouch.
B2B marketers who adapt to the tectonic shifts in marketing can reap enormous benefits to both their company and career. As the apocryphal Chinese curse goes, “May you live in interesting times.” Most B2B marketers can relate as they race to keep up with the new and ever-changing best practices of marketing effectiveness. The current revolution from outbound to inbound marketing is akin to when the horse and buggy industry was faced with the automobile. Some in that industry adapted to the sea change. Many did not.
Armed with the right marketing weapons, B2B companies can successfully outgun competitors who are larger, more established and better funded.
