When you look at it from an individual business’ perspective, each will have specific dynamics and distinctive requirements for their sales process.
What works for one brand can’t be duplicated.
Because of the differences in the way each B2B business operates, one couldn’t duplicate a marketing strategy and expect it to work.
A DemandWave report surveyed 179 B2B marketers from multiple industries, and asked which channels drove leads and revenue for their company.
