Summit Panel Looks at Modernizing B2B Marketing
Business-to-business (B2B) marketing is on an evolutionary path, with digitization becoming the number one priority. The ongoing pandemic has accelerated this shift, and B2B selling is now beyond simple product pushing. It involves telling an engaging story, finding the right positioning, customer retention, buyer intent data, personalization, and integrated marketing. All of these must be part of modernizing B2B marketing for the modern B2B buyer.
Conventional outbound marketing is taking a backseat, as there is a paradigm shift towards digital sales. There’s a need for better differentiation and segmentation of messaging leveraging intent data, personalization, content marketing, account-based marketing and market research.
The True Influence Summit features a stimulating panel discussion on “Modernizing B2B Marketing” led by Kay Kienast, True Influence CMO, with special guest Laura Ramos, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research.
