Global marketing network Wunderman Thompson has expanded its global B2B offering by launching ‘Inspired B2B’.
Inspire B2B is a new initiative dedicated to inspiring growth for ambitious B2B brands.
Bringing together the depth and breadth of Wunderman Thompson capabilities spanning creative, business transformation, content, experience, personalisation, and commerce, the Inspired B2B initiative represents the next phase of development for Wunderman Thompson’s B2B vertical to help clients around the world build emotional connections at every stage of the customer journey.
Through Wunderman Thompson, brands will have access to over 500 B2B specialists around the world delivering relevant communications that enable B2B acceleration.
As part of Inspired B2B, Wunderman Thompson has developed tools to help brands navigate the B2B landscape. The InspiredB2B Assessment Score helps brands identify the impact their strategy and operations are having across every part of their business and understand where to prioritise efforts to better drive growth.
Meanwhile, Loom B2B is a data-driven intelligence solution, powered by AI using natural language processing and text, created to allow brands to develop their content strategy with confidence and clear direction.
Built around the LinkedIn Audience Engagement API, Loom B2B equips brands with engagement insights into business leaders and professionals at scale.
Wunderman Thompson’s Global Inspire Study shows that inspiring brands outperform peers on two key metrics – growing market share faster and enabling them to charge at higher price points.
The findings show that inspiration has a significant impact on B2B buyers, with Inspired B2B brands:
Neil Dawson, Global Chief Strategy Officer at Wunderman Thompson, said, “With our research showing that inspiring brands are 5x more likely to be a B2B buyer’s first choice, there’s a huge opportunity for B2B brands to engage, inspire, and excite their audiences. But when we look at B2B, we see a sea of sameness. It's time to ditch the rulebook and remember the audience is human; driven by emotion, curiosity, and wonder. There’s never been a better time to be a B2B marketer.”
Most recently, Wunderman Thompson’s B2B Future Shopper report shows that 46% of B2B buyers say they are frustrated buying products online and over 50% believe brands don’t understand the various pain points.
The report highlights the significant potential for brands to drive growth by improving the B2B purchasing process and implementing an Inspired B2B strategy.
