There is a tinny line of separation between industrial marketing and B2B marketing. We all know that B2B marketing stands for marketing products and services to the companies and not to the end-users. In the broader perspective, industrial marketing looks the same. However, there is a difference. This article primarily talks about what exactly is industrial marketing and what approach companies should take to drive and design their marketing efforts.

The industrial marketing is for the companies in the industrial sector, such as manufacturers, distributors, contractors and service providers. If you represent any of them, this article will help you streamline your marketing strategy to solve some of the following challenges.

• No sales and marketing efforts synergy
• Inability to identify marketing KPI
• Less visibility over quality leads

Niche Audience:

We all understand that the buying process for the industrial sector is different than that of consumers. Hence, it requires a tailored approach. Your tailored approach should fulfil your buyers’ specific or very specific requirements. The biggest challenge for many of these companies is to maintain consistency with their customized approach. Ideally, the approach should be maintained throughout the phases of buying cycle.

The tailor-made approach should begin when their audience is at the research stage. In the industrial sector, the sales are lengthy and involve lots of money. Hence, the potential buyer had to undergo a research phase to identify and finalize the product.

The second-level approach comes at the stage where the buyer has identified his requirement and looking for the right kind of product for it. Remember, content is your primary inventory, which will help you drive good results throughout the buying cycle.

When your potential buyer completes the research phase and enters into the requirement phase, the role of content becomes vital. Many of the marketers are tend to focus on selling their product features rather highlighting the solutions to your buyer’s problem. Remember, your buyer is more interested in finding the right product to meet his business requirement rather wasting time on understanding your product features.

The Strategy:
