Transactions in the business vs. consumer environments are two distinct marketing propositions; the difference between B2B and B2C marketing comes down to the nature of the sale: B2C sales are typically faster transactions of lower value. In consumer marketing, emotional triggers such as popularity and ‘status' play a critical role in brand longevity, and B2C marketing specialises in targeting these psychological associations.
B2B sales are more ‘rational' in character, more concerned with a product's potential to increase performance and profitability, and top B2B marketing agencies recognise this rationality vs. emotionality (B2C) divide as crucial in defining their marketing approach. The stakes are higher in business to business sales, which often represent important capital decisions that need to prove returns on investment, made by a larger collective of decision makers and executives.
Business to business marketing strategies need to address this crucial difference with specialised brand awareness, lead generation, and customer engagement strategies using appropriate communication channels.
These communications don't just need to speak to a variety of individuals across organisational functions; they need to effectively and accurately target the various stages of the customer journey with tailored messages, nurturing leads from initial interest to sale. Today this is more important than ever: B2B sales are over 20% longer than they were five years ago as potential customers are using the Internet to do more research than ever before, and it's important to target decision makers across each step of the customer journey with relevant marketing content.
CubicICE has specialised in southern Africa's business to business marketing sector for over 30 years. In this time, we've demonstrated a consistent ability to generate high-quality business leads that have secured our clients hundreds of millions of Rands worth of new business projects through effective, dynamic communication channels between buyer and seller.
Need a marketing strategy that can draw on a wide range of proven communication techniques to increase leads in the B2B marketplace? We've helped small and large, local and international businesses improve their market share through tailored strategies that engage key audiences and improve brand credibility with prospective buyers.
There's no ‘one-size-fits-all' business to business marketing strategy that can claim to deliver universal success across all industries and market requirements. Instead, a marketing strategy will only be successful if it correctly grasps your organisation's unique business goals as well as the requirements of your customer base, and has a fluid approach that can be continually updated and revised based on market and business conditions.
CubicICE offers a holistic approach to marketing strategies for the business to business market based on the SOSTAC® marketing model, from research through to performance monitoring:
B2B marketing strategies require a dedicated, skilful and experienced partner that understands how marketing should be used within today's business sales environments. CubicICE specialises in business to business marketing strategies, with broad industry experience in marketing campaigns that focus on enhancing bottom line business results.
