Best Practices For Finding and Engaging The B2B Respondent

We know that B2B marketing presents its own unique challenges, and B2B research does as well. Reaching busy executives and business professionals is difficult in the best of times, but add in the fluctuating climate brought on by the COVID-era, and finding the right respondent who has the depth of knowledge on their industry and is willing to help provide the insights you need, is more complex than ever.

B2B research has always posed its unique challenges, but the past two years have been increasingly challenging for B2B researchers. COVID has changed the ways in which we live our daily lives and how we conduct business, with the home being the central hub of all activities both personally and professionally.

So, it wasn’t surprising to receive a note from my daughter’s school the other day indicating that student picture day would be conducted entirely online this year. The local photography studio made sure to let me know that this would be the first year that they would be doing away with the traditional paper order forms, that “many of us prefer.”

But, what about business-to-business (B2B) research? There are some unique challenges to consider that are outside of the norm of consumer research. If you feel that this type of research is outside of your comfort zone, you are not alone.
