B2B marketing: Six steps to thrive in a world upended by COVID-19

With salespeople stranded at home and face-to-face interaction stymied in a world upended by a pandemic, the traditional B2B model is no longer adequate.

The need for a marketing transformation that puts digital at the fore has become urgent. As much as a more mature B2B model is a sudden necessity, however, it’s also an opportunity.
With a new approach comes the chance to improve your organization’s understanding of client needs, deepen relationships, build better service, and create a more fully realized, more digitally-enabled customer journey.

Our approach is to focus on six key actions every organization should take as it strives to put in place a futureproof B2B model, including:

  • Address shifting stakeholders and complex decision-making units
  • Become fully customer-centric
  • Keep up with fast-paced change and technology innovation
  • Transform to digital in new business, operating and customer models
  • Build new market roles and functions
  • Redefine collaboration and break down marketing silos
