There’s never been a better time to be a B2B marketer, with powerful new tools, greater visibility, and a license to reinvent what B2B can do.

It’s been the Cinderella of marketing for too long, but in the age of the professional feed, search & hyper authenticity across all touch points, it’s time for B2B to come to the party. We tackle the ‘elephant in the room’ head-on and explore the tension between driving leads and building a B2B brand.

As the path to business purchases evolves and we recognise that leads are humans too, B2B marketers have an opportunity to rediscover the art of branding, and quite possibly reinvent it as well. What can we learn from B2C campaigns – and what must we figure out ourselves?
