About the report

Understanding the business buyer mindset stands at the very core of b2b marketing and is key to any supplier’s success. Gaining such an understanding is, however, easier said than done. Harder still is dissecting each facet of decision-making along each touchpoint in the buyer journey. To make your brand emotionally engaging throughout the purchasing process is the “Holy Grail” of b2b marketing.

The ‘State of B2B’ Survey explores how b2b buying decisions are made. We asked 2,000 business decision-makers across Europe, the USA and China who influences them and where they go for information. We asked them how many suppliers they consider, and how long all of this takes. And, crucially, we asked them how suppliers make them feel.

Entitled “Winning With Emotion: How To Become Your Customers’ First Choice”, this latest report focuses on the entire b2b buying process, from understanding how to enter the consideration set to gaining an early advantage over competitors to ultimately becoming the first-choice supplier.
