HOUSTON, TX – December 5, 2019 – While countless marketers have opined on the differences between B2C and B2B marketing, the line between the two has recently been blurred. This shift is happening, in part, because more brands serve both consumers and businesses, as when a B2C luxury bed sheet startup lands a contract with a national hotel chain. Even the companies situated squarely on one end of the B2C–B2B spectrum are destined to lose out if they fail to learn from the other side.
The companies willing to innovate—by testing and adopting new methods pioneered by B2C, B2B, and even direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands—have a huge opportunity to stand out in 2020 and beyond.
