Dramatic demographic and behavioral changes have given rise to a new type of B2B customer, one who behaves more like a digital consumer than a traditional buyer. Showing you completely understand them and their concerns is now a marketing imperative -- your messages and content must appeal to their more demanding needs or you risk losing out to faster-moving competition. Forrester’s April Henderson and Laura Ramos explore how your message must adapt in this customer-centered age and how empathetic content is now essential to winning buyers’ attention, serving their needs, and retaining their business long term.

Takeaway

  • Most B2B content fails to balance objectivity and empathy: change this and you gain competitive advantage
  • Creating engaging content requires a new mindset – these five practices help you build empathy
