One thought on “B2B Digital Marketing Strategy In Coming Years

  1. I agree with you Nawaz. But unfortunately most B2B companies still struggling to understand the value of marketing funnel. I am not talking about Analytics marketing funnel here but the front-end and back-end of their business. You cannot make digital successful until you have a right bait at the front-end and do all the selling from back-end.
