The real ROI of B2B content marketing

The real ROI of B2B content marketing. Speaking to Ad Exchanger, John Kennedy outlined his philosophy as he explained how the world of B2B marketing has changed in recent times with the development of multiple channels and the greater use of data. "We've reached a greater maturity curve relative to using data and analytics to serve content in a more personalised and relevant way over the last several years," he said. That trend is most evident in B2C marketing but the same thinking is increasingly being applied in a B2B context as attention shifts to individuals rather than businesses. "What the advent of digital has done has created more transparency about who all the players were in the B2B purchase process," said Kennedy. "They used to market to companies. That's why you've got B2B marketers now thinking in personas – that's the big shift." "We've evolved our model to be less about associating our brand with certain topics in an industry than [about] creating richer content that could help a buyer at different points in their purchase journey across the upper, middle and lower funnel," he said. "We were being more specific around the role different pieces of content play at different stages of the purchase process. And getting more rigorous in measuring the outcome of that content."
