As Heidi Taylor wrote here mere months ago, it’s time for B2B marketers to think differently. 

Marketing, especially digital marketing can be a roller coaster of shifting best practices, consumer behaviors, and guidelines.

It’s a stark difference from the top-of-funnel focus in so many conversions in years prior.
