As a B2B marketer, you know that not all leads are valued the same. Depending on the product or service a lead is interested in, or the size of the company they represent, they can vary vastly in potential value.
By enhancing your data strategy, you can open up future-proofed solutions to valuing the impact of your marketing channels, allowing you to streamline your marketing to the most valued channels and customers. Creating this heightened perspective uncovers strengths and weaknesses, filling in the gaps in your customer journey and naturally directing your business down a path of digital maturity.
B2B sales often have a long consideration period which creates various attribution issues. Prospects will have multiple online and offline journeys, potentially across different devices and with multiple stakeholders involved.
Besides the extended consideration period, there is often an even longer timeframe before the value of the client is realised. For example, following a purchase, it might be 6-12 months before you know the true value of that customer and how much they will actually spend with you.
This is where the research phase bears its fruit. Attributing value to each touchpoint in the user journey reveals different levels of intent and expected lifetime value which is crucial later down the line.
