Poll Results: Which B2B Marketing Trends Will Be Most Prevalent In 2024?


In the ever-evolving landscape of B2B marketing, staying ahead of the curve is essential to ensure your business’s success. We’re always keeping tabs on the latest trends shaping the future of B2B marketing, and the top 4 on our radar are crystal clear. But we wanted to hear it from you, so we took to our social channels and hosted a poll to determine which of our top 4 trends will be most prevalent in 2024. Curious about the results? Let’s dive in:

1. Artificial Intelligence

The top industry trend voted (by a long shot!) as the one to watch in 2024 was artificial intelligence. This comes as no surprise, as AI has been revolutionizing B2B marketing by automating repetitive tasks, enhancing data analysis, and providing valuable insights. With AI-powered tools, you can improve lead scoring, implement chatbots for instant customer support, and personalize content at scale. AI helps you make data-driven decisions and optimize your marketing strategies, ultimately driving better ROI.

2. Self-Service Selling

Coming in at number 2 on the list was self-service selling. B2B buyers now demand the same level of convenience and self-service options that they experience in their consumer lives. This trend involves creating seamless digital experiences, offering online product trials, and enabling customers to make purchasing decisions independently. By embracing self-service selling, you empower your customers and streamline your sales process, resulting in increased efficiency and customer satisfaction.

3. Hyper-Personalization

Number 3 is a tie! Between two very important trends, the first being hyper-personalization. In the age of information overload, generic marketing messages no longer cut it. Hyper-personalization is about tailoring your marketing efforts to the specific needs, pain points, and preferences of individual B2B buyers. By leveraging data-driven insights, predictive analytics, and AI-powered algorithms, you can create highly targeted, relevant content and offers that resonate with your audience. The result is improved engagement and higher conversion rates.

(Also!) 3. Intent/First-Party Data

Intent/first-party data was also ranked number 3, and with good reason! Understanding your audience’s intent is crucial for delivering the right message at the right time. First-party data, which you collect directly from your customers and prospects, provides invaluable insights into their behavior and preferences. By harnessing this data, you can create more accurate buyer personas, refine your content strategies, and optimize your marketing campaigns. Additionally, tracking intent signals across digital channels enables you to engage with potential customers when they are most interested, increasing your chances of success.

These trends represent exciting opportunities for B2B marketers to stay competitive and drive growth. By aligning your strategies with self-service selling, hyper-personalization, intent/first-party data, and AI, you can create a more agile and customer-centric marketing approach that resonates with today’s B2B buyers.
