B2B marketers expect their world to change dramatically in two years, according to a report from eMarketer. Today, the top three responsibilities indicated by B2B marketers worldwide are brand positioning, lead generation, and brand communications. In two years, however, these same marketers think their chief responsibility will be understanding buyers. The two additional responsibilities indicated for two years from now are marketing technology tools and market/competitor analysis.
According to eMarketer, "B2B marketers must make big strides when it comes to integrating data in order to understand their customers." This is a challenge they'll have to face given their predictions about future responsibilities.
