There are two parts in this book. Part One is on strategy,
planning, and management of B2B marketing, and Part Two
Part One includes:
• What business to business marketing is, how it differs
from sales and consumer marketing, and why it’s often
hard for B2B companies to master.
• B2B marketing strategy—when and why you need to
develop one and how to do so in a practical way.
• Tactical marketing planning, including a set of rules
to help you evaluate which tactics are right for your
business, and when.
• Guidance on managing the marketing function—how
much you should spend, who should do the work, and
how to measure performance.
Part Two is all about implementing B2B marketing. This section
is a comprehensive, practical reference. There are tips on how
to execute effectively, resources you can use, and suggested
metrics for all the most commonly used B2B marketing
You can read this book cover to cover or pick and choose
the sections you need. There’s enough detail to provide a
novice with a full understanding of B2B marketing, while an
experienced marketing professional can skim for reminders
on the structure and nuances of both strategy and execution.
