The Forces That Will Reshape B-to-B Marketing in 2023 | OpenGrowth

Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic change in the role of marketing within a business. Marketing has transformed from a creative, brand-focused cost center to a data-focused income generator driving strategy and objectives as companies are placing greater emphasis on the customer experience as a competitive differentiator.

Marketing leaders must find opportunities to develop and implement an effective marketing strategy that positively impacts the organization. Creating high-quality content, integrating data from many sources for better insights, bringing first-party data to the table, and showcasing CSR initiatives are some B2B marketing trends to keep in mind for 2023.

Content Quality over Quantity

The theory behind search engine optimization (SEO) tactics that emphasize content frequency is that a website can acquire popularity by posting pertinent terms more frequently. However, it is crucial to pay attention to both the bots and the people that assess your site content. Similar to consumers, search engine algorithms have become increasingly complex and effective at evaluating the quality of content. According to 83% of marketers, it is more efficient to provide higher quality content less frequently.

 

How to produce quality content?

More than innovation, distribution, and promotion, excellent content is considered a competitive differentiator by 83% of marketers.

Appropriate length 

There isn't a secret word count that will make your material more popular. Instead, content must provide a clear, precise response to the query at hand, supplying the customer with the knowledge they require at the appropriate stage of the buying process. According to a SEMRush study, educational blog posts that are 1000–1500 words long perform the best, whereas pillar pages and informational guides benefit from being twice as long.

 

Put intention first

Utilize empathy and an understanding of your audience. A Google search is a deliberate action because, regardless of what you are looking for, there is always a reason why someone would be conducting that search right now. You can more precisely respond to someone's inquiries after you understand their motivation for asking.

 

Make your purpose clear

What purpose does this piece of content serve? Is it meant to inform, counsel on a course of action, or entertain the audience? It is much simpler to write high-quality, deliberate, and interesting content once you are aware of what a visitor is looking for and the strategy you plan to employ to provide it.

 

Data: First-Party takes the lead

The importance of first-party data is cited by 88% of marketers. A successful marketing strategy depends on first-party data, which is information obtained directly from customers and is controlled by the business. In the past, marketing executives have gotten their information from providers who are one or two steps distant from the customer. But as consumer data platforms advance, they can collect and incorporate first-party data from numerous sources, including websites, email, social media, etc. This enables marketers to create thorough profiles of certain clients and use that data to derive insightful, useful information.

 

Using and Growing First-Party Data

It used to be challenging to combine client behaviors from many channels to produce a single 360-degree profile. However, marketers are combining first-party data across channels by utilizing improved technology. First-party data collection is prioritized by marketing leaders, who are also utilizing several cross-channel tactics, such as:

1. Addressing privacy issues

A growing concern for both consumers and organizations, data privacy, and security are being addressed through regulatory measures. The use of cookies to track user behavior across websites has been eliminated by Apple and Google, which have also modified their data collection procedures.

All businesses that gather, store, and utilize consumer data must have a data security plan in place right away. This is necessary not only to comply with ever-changing legal requirements but also to show customers that the company values and respects their privacy.

Data privacy is a challenging topic. While 83% of consumers are wary about providing personal information online, 63% of customers expect firms to be personalized. It is the responsibility of marketers to win over customers' trust in order to obtain the data needed to deliver improved service while allaying privacy concerns.

 

2. Subscribe to technology

Making first-party data more valuable and useable requires optimizing your consumer data platform to collect and standardize data from many channels. Through the B2B marketing funnel, a complete customer profile captures activities that occur prior to a sale.

However, incorporating details from the contact center, the CRM, and ongoing digital engagements with a website and social media, even after a sale, all contribute to that 360-degree profile. To increase the effectiveness and efficiency of their marketing campaigns, marketers can use this knowledge to inform continuing personalization, upselling, and retention initiatives.

 

3. Develop by testing

There should never be a set-it-and-forget-it mentality in marketing. Instead, it is possible to use ongoing testing and improvement to raise the quality of client information and the efficiency of marketing plans. For more meaningful interactions throughout the B2B marketing funnel, keep A/B testing and fine-tuning your messaging to find out what connects with clients.

 

4. Take social responsibility

72% of B2B buyers want to do business with organizations that share their political and social values. 75% of consumers are willing to pay more to do business with an ethical organization. Consumers frequently look for socially conscious businesses when making their own purchasing decisions, showing more loyalty and spending more money when supplied goods from a business they appreciate. The B2B sector is also affected by this trend, therefore it is not just a B2C issue.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) considerations factor into B2B purchasing decisions more and more, making it crucial for businesses to highlight their CSR initiatives in messaging and marketing.

How to Exercise and Communicate CSR?

Be genuine

Professionals with sophistication and understanding make B2B purchasing decisions. Buyers will increasingly pick out companies who use CSR as a public relations gimmick or a temporary fix to increase sales. A genuine, consistent CSR plan that is linked to the brand's identity will be more appealing to customers and ultimately more successful.

 

Respond to the proper inquiries

CSR initiatives can come in various shapes and sizes, from encouraging volunteer work and matching donations to developing strategies to lessen the company's environmental impact and carbon footprint. How can a company cut through the clutter and provide the right information?

B2B purchasers have precise ideas about the problems that businesses should resolve, and these priorities are reflected in the B2C purchasing decisions that customers make more frequently. These include:

1. Loud and proud

Don't be afraid to use a variety of platforms to share company CSR strategies (and successes!) Use your website to lay out your plans, and think about publishing a regular CSR yearly report to assess the success of your company's overall responsibility initiatives. Activities (such as employee volunteering) should be publicized on social media and mentioned in newsletters and emails.

It is unreasonable to expect B2B buyers to be aware of the positive impact a company has on the globe if such knowledge is not readily available. For optimum efficacy, make CSR a central component of communications and apply it consistently across all platforms.

 

2. Make Your B2B Marketing Funnel Better

Your marketing efforts can be made more scalable, efficient, and effective by incorporating B2B trends into your strategies for 2023 and beyond. Producing high-quality content, enhancing data insights, and conveying CSR enhance brand relationships and promote brand messaging. You may improve your B2B strategy by working with a scalable, results-driven partner.

Conclusion

  • Although it is business-to-business marketing, you are still conversing with people. The most successful B2B marketers combine reason and feeling.

  • Constructing your vision, defining your audience, choosing methods and channels, launching content and campaigns, and then continuously measuring for optimization are the fundamental phases in developing a B2B marketing plan.

  • To guarantee that you are reaching all of the most crucial stakeholders who may have an impact on the decision, balance targeting by balancing volume with precision.

  • Conversational, targeted, and contextually appropriate B2B marketing is the gold standard.

  • Thought leadership material can provide you with a competitive edge, but it can also backfire if it doesn't live up to expectations.

  • Context is important. A market where your target is and make an effort to match your messaging with their attitude.
