Why Content Marketing is so important for B2B

  • How B2B buyers approach purchasing has changed - more than two-thirds conduct independent research and want to find the information they need without dealing with the sales team.

  • B2B buyers purposely ignore your advertising - they don't want to waste time on unsolicited sales calls. They use caller ID & spam filters to ignore calls and emails.

  • B2B content marketing builds trust and authority. By providing relevant and valuable information, you establish thought leadership expertise and help reduce the risk of purchase in the buyer's mind.

  • B2B content marketing is cost-efficient - it generates X3 more leads than outbound marketing and costs 62% less. Content marketing also has staying power as it can last for years, waiting to be found by new buyers entering the sale cycle.

  • Content improves SEO & website traffic - Google research shows that more than 70% of B2B buyers start with a generic search for solutions to specific problems. So you must show up at the top of the results.

  • B2B Content Marketing Works - 60% of marketers say content marketing generates demand and leads. In addition, 70% report that content marketing helps educate their audience, and 60% say it builds loyalty with existing customers.

Nearly half of B2B sales take seven months or more to close. As B2B prospects work their way through the buyer’s journey, B2B content helps nurture them at each stage to drive them forward. The best B2B content will educate users, provide answers to the question they have, or solve their challenges.

Content marketing is inexpensive, safe, available for anyone in any industry, and beneficial in many different areas. The sooner you start investing in it, the sooner you'll see results.
