7 Components of a Successful B2B Marketing Strategy for 2019

b2b marketing

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.

For example, in May 2018, a new European privacy regulation called GDPR was enforced that can profoundly change businesses in terms of collection, storage, and usage of customer data. Deloitte found that only 15% of organizations expected to be compliant with these new privacy regulations by the May deadline, which means it’s something many marketers are still dealing with. And given that 57% of B2B marketers think personalization is a key trend for the next year, changes to tracking and data storage can have a huge impact.

Marketing Strategy

We’re also emphasizing different phases of the funnel than we used to. ClickZ’s B2B marketing survey found that more marketers are moving their attention away from audience building and lead generation at the top of the funnel to nurturing and converting those. While 45% of respondents said growing traffic was a priority, 50% are now demanding leads that are fed into the middle and bottom. It’s a stark difference from the top-of-funnel focus in so many conversions in years prior.

Re-Thinking Digital Marketing by Automating your Analytics

Digital Marketing

In early 2018, headlines were dominated by the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The general gist of the scandal was that a data collection firm had improperly obtained Facebook information to build voter profiles.  

The scandal further suggested that those voter profiles were used to create fake news stories in order to persuade voters in one direction or another. While the way in which the information was used may have been abominable, the truth is the information Cambridge Analytica obtained was not necessarily particularly private or sensitive.  

It was information that voters themselves shared about themselves to family friends and a select segment of the general public. In essence, all Cambridge Analytica did was figure out their preconceived notions and deeply held political beliefs and create news stories they were already predisposed to believing and therefore did not question.  

While once again, this is a heinous use of technology, the truth is, it also offers a tantalizing glimpse into the future of marketing. Here are three lessons to learn from the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Read More
