Our CEO and co-founder Lee Odden kicks off the comprehensive all-new report by looking ahead and introducing some of the key questions the report examines.
“Without question, the pandemic has impacted all aspects of business including B2B marketing, with 74 percent of respondents in our survey saying they made adjustments to their go-to market strategies.
The good news is that many B2B marketers have emerged from the pandemic as confident: Nearly half of the marketers we surveyed consider their marketing very or extremely successful.
A lot of that confidence comes from a focus on what works, and 96 percent of marketers plan to keep some or most changes made in the past two years, including working with influencers. In fact, 71 percent indicated influencer marketing became more important during the pandemic.
In times like these, the importance of Influence is critical for brands that need to connect authentically with their buyers and create meaningful experiences.
But what’s next? What do digital-first B2B influencers look like? What are the best practices and technologies? How important is it for B2B brands to build influence with their employees? Our forthcoming report answers all of those questions and more including insights from some of the top B2B brands in the world.
B2B marketers have a unique opportunity in 2022 to create more authentic, trusted and meaningful experiences for their customers, and our forthcoming report will show you how.”
The 2022 B2B Influencer Marketing Research Report is set to drive important industry conversations as we head towards 2023, and has already been featured in publications from Forbes to Social Media Today.
