Unlocking B2B2C success: Why a holistic marketing approach is key.

Marketing to businesses and consumers at the same time can be tricky. It's easy to miss opportunities if you don't have a plan that covers everything. 

The key to success is using a holistic marketing strategy. This means making sure all parts of your marketing work together. 

In this blog, we'll explore why a comprehensive approach is so important. We'll also look at how the Owen B2B2C Harmony Framework can help you get the most out of your marketing efforts.


The challenge of targeting two audiences.

One of the biggest challenges in B2B2C marketing is the need to target two different audiences: 

  • The businesses you sell to (B2B)
  • The consumers who buy from those businesses (B2C)

A holistic approach can help you develop strategies for both audiences.

Push and pull marketing.

A comprehensive B2B2C marketing strategy should use both "push" and "pull" marketing tactics. 

Push marketing focuses on talking directly to the businesses you sell to. This helps them understand your brand so they can sell it to consumers.

Pull marketing aims to build awareness and demand among consumers. You do this by communicating with them directly.

Inbound and outbound methods.

A holistic approach should also use both inbound and outbound marketing methods. 

Inbound marketing provides valuable content to consumers and businesses. They often use digital channels to learn about products on their own.

Outbound marketing uses a more traditional approach. It uses paid media to target and interrupt the audience. 

The Owen B2B2C Harmony Framework helps clients find the right balance between these methods. It creates a marketing mix that matches their target audiences' preferences and behaviours.

Marketing materials for selling to businesses and consumers.

A holistic B2B2C marketing strategy should also include comprehensive marketing materials for:

  • Selling to businesses (sell-in) 
  • Helping businesses sell to consumers (sell-through)

Sell-in materials help your sales team communicate the value of your brand to businesses. 

Sell-through materials give businesses the tools they need to successfully sell your brand to consumers. 

Our B2B2C Harmony Framework provides guidance on creating these essential materials. This ensures your marketing efforts are supported at every stage of the sales process.

Benefits of a holistic approach.

Using a holistic marketing approach framework, can lead to many benefits:

  • Better ROI: By targeting the right audiences with the most effective methods, you can spend your marketing budget more efficiently. This reduces waste and maximises the impact of each campaign.
  • Increased brand loyalty: A comprehensive approach creates valuable content and engaging experiences for both businesses and consumers. This builds long-term brand loyalty and leads to higher customer lifetime value.
  • Competitive advantage: Developing a targeted and adaptable marketing strategy can help you stand out from competitors. They may be using a more fragmented or one-size-fits-all approach.

In B2B2C marketing, success depends on your ability to develop a holistic strategy. This means making sure all parts of your marketing efforts work together. 

By using a comprehensive approach, for example, the Owen B2B2C Harmony Framework, you can get the most out of your marketing investments. This drives better results and helps you achieve long-term success.
