In the B2B marketing-sales sphere, the marketers need to address each need of the audience. To achieve this objective, marketers and salespeople need to collect huge volumes of data. Regardless of who the customers are, B2B marketers and sales teams collect a swarm of data with the help of browsing history, clicks, buying history, and much more. Once the data is collected, big data and AI help these enterprises reach out to their customers with the right product at the right time. This can lead to drastic improvement in the sales experience.
How AI, machine learning, and Big Data facilitates B2B operations?
- Lead Generation
It may take hundreds of hours for humans to generate leads, filter contacts from LinkedIn, company websites, and more. Let machines do that task, gather information, analyze them only to give you everything on the plate ready. Artificial intelligence can organize unstructured data from emails, phone calls, and social posts to identify patterns and define who is a good target.
The info is vital for conducting effective outreach and campaigns.
- Predictive account management in sales
Don’t you know that machines are powerful at analyzing data to glean insights for sales and marketing teams specifically? It is time to harness this power of machines to figure out commonalities between customers. The information also helps in segregating your best customers from the less desired ones to focus your marketing efforts towards strong prospects and leads later.
Predictive sales efforts are already in place, but everything is evolving day by day. Social media platforms also offer tools to analyze which ads are doing their best for which category of audience. AI and Big Data help B2B businesses to offer personalized suggestions to their customers about their products and services easily.
- Monitor customer behavior
B2B companies are the ones exploiting AI and Big Data the most. As they actively monitor web analytics to monitor customer behavior, they are already a part of the AI game. However, with more power of machine learning, these companies can use Big Data more effectively to learn about customers, respond to their queries in real-time, cater to customers’ requirements, and run a successful marketing campaign.
- Freeing up humans for more strategic tasks
Whenever we talk about AI, Big Data, and machine learning, we observe that humans are freeing up their time. The more you burden the machines, the more humans get time for strategic tasks, which machines are not capable of performing. While we have machines to identify patterns and process data efficiently, humans can apply the same learning to bear their creative responsibilities.
