The Institute for the Study of Business Markets (ISBM) recently released their new finding on B-to-B Marketing Trends for 2012. The study highlights the need for change from investing in the best tools available to truly understanding the needs of your customers. This means getting access to meaningful market and competitive insights and helping clients understand the power of business segmentation.
Among the top 3 quantitative study results were:
- More effectively quantify and communicate value created for customers.
- Better understand what the customer really needs.
- Identify new opportunities for organic growth.
The study breaks down each of the seven findings into key findings, examples of who’s doing it right and a resource to help you along the way. It’s an easy read and one I’d recommend any marketer take the time to review.
