The B2B Buying Process

The B2B buying process has always been complex. Understanding how and where today's business buyers get their information is critical to reaching them with the right content they need to make decisions. No longer will lower funnel only tactics suffice for achieving your bottom line. Buyers conduct research online anytime, anywhere and any way they want. Your SEM, ABM and walled garden strategies need a boost from programmatic.

Full-Funnel B2B Marketing

Structure your funnel for success, by making a proportionate investment through all stages. Upper funnel marketing matters. It enables you to:

Uncover New Audiences

Expose your content and nurture strategies to untapped audiences to increase your TAM potential.

Widen the Sales Funnel

Over time it will naturally narrow but you want to cast a broad net initially.

Nurture Leads

Engage those from the upper funnel who aren't ready to buy yet.

Attract Attention and Engagement

B2B ads are often flat in comparison to B2C—but they don't have to be. Employing similar tactics as consumer ads can better attract attention and increase engagement. A countdown ad is a great way to create a sense of urgency for events, whether it be an upcoming webinar, industry conference or free trial offering of your software.
