The b2b technology process is complicated. The marketplace is crowded and the complexity of the sale only increases as more stakeholders get involved. Technology marketers, however, can leverage content marketing to simplify their message and connect to these decision-makers.
A recent study by MarketingSherpa surveyed 4,000 b2b technology business professionals to understand what types of content these buyers are looking for. The types of content most requested?
CASE STUDIES: 67% of buyers reported case studies at the top of their list for most desired content.
EDUCATIONAL CONTENT: 84% of buyers want content that educates them and expect vendors to provide it.
CONTENT THAT SOLVES A PROBLEM: 72% of buyers want to find “solutions to solve a current problem.”
CONTENT CUSTOMIZED TO DIFFERENT BUYING STAGES: 60% of buyers look for different types of content depending on their needs at the time.
We surveyed the B2B technology landscape and interviewed content marketers from brands leading in these four areas. Here, we’ll discuss their strategies and see how they approach creating these types of content.
