The B2B content challenge
Because they turn to improve performance and de-risk their operations, B2B buyers have a seemingly insatiable hunger for information.

Both dependence on information and the changing preferences regarding channel and format further stress that organizations like yours have to keep up. Below are a few ways practitioners will undoubtedly be tackling these challenges in the year ahead:
- Teams will rely more on data to handle buyers journey issues directly. Teams will rely less on colleagues intuition and word-of-mouth. Theyll are more truly data- and market-driven in how they position, message and deliver into channels and touchpoints.

Rearchitecting demand gen for greater opportunity capture
Until very recently, most demand gen organizations were about growing lead volumes as cheaply as you possibly can. Partly because of the inevitable flattening out of performance, and informed by the rise of ABM thinking, significant changes in understanding are upon us. For 2023, we anticipate further momentum in these areas:
- Teams could have a deeper knowledge of buyers journeys of when and how exactly to do something. Greater visibility into buyer research activity and GTM actions alike is raising awareness around what could possibly be done easier to identify and accelerate more opportunities. Yet while its a very important factor to learn whats actually going on, its quite another to obtain something done about any of it. Teams that so effectively will proceed of these peers.
- Marketing qualified leads (MQLs) will undoubtedly be informed by other indicators. Although we dont expect marketing teams to abandon MQLs completely, organizations will undoubtedly be incorporating more buyers journey and purchasing team inputs to their qualification practices.
- ABM thinking will continue steadily to inform demand generation practices. Few companies experienced the resources to provide dedicated one-to-few ABM, but most companies now acknowledge the potential great things about more finely segmenting and prioritizing their audiences. Seeking to exploit these concepts where they are able to, they’ll select and roll out new efforts using ABM principles as inspiration.
