B2B companies often compete in very niche markets, which makes reaching their target audiences online a challenge. Thankfully, through appropriately leveraging first and third-party data, there are several ways to overcome this barrier.

View your buyer from the right perspective

An online user can be viewed from two very different perspectives, depending on whether the advertiser is B2B or B2C. Make sure that you are viewing your buyer through the appropriate lens in order to truly reach the right person at the right time with the right messaging, online.

Don’t just communicate with the decision-makers

B2B purchases are not made in isolation, with only the input of c-suite or senior level executives. According to Google, 81 percent of non-C suite employees have a say in purchasing decisions. The purchase process actually involves input from multiple audiences, such as end-users, internal influencers, people that buy from your competitors and people that currently buy from you. Creating a strategy that reaches all of these different audiences not only builds brand awareness, but increases their likelihood to convert on your website.
