Content Marketing Mapping: Em Que Medida as Pesquisas Online Influenciam as Empresas B2B?

Devido à Internet, às redes sociais e também ao aumento dos dispositivos móveis os seus potenciais clientes e actuais clientes - que, neste documento, terão a designação de compradores - estão a passar mais tempo na Internet, obtendo quase toda a informação de que necessitam e de modo independente.

Em 2009, os executivos seniores realizaram, em média, 6 pesquisas diárias na Internet (pesquisas executadas com origem em computadores e dispositivos móveis). - Fonte: “Rise of the Digital C-Suite” (efectuado pela Forbes e Google)
Em 2010, e de acordo com o estudo “The Untethered Executive” da Forbes Insights, o número médio de pesquisas diárias efectuadas por executivos seniores na Internet foi de:

  • 12 com origem em computadores
  • 7 com origem em dispositivos móveis (superior ao número médio de pesquisas diárias totais de 2009)

Também segundo a Focus, 90% dos compradores empresariais preferem consumir informação online. É de notar que essa tendência também se verifica ao nível das empresas de Tecnologias de Informação (TI).

“Na maioria das regiões do mundo mais de 90% usam, sempre ou frequentemente, a Internet para pesquisar soluções relacionadas com Tecnologias de Informação” - "Understanding Regional Distinctions of How IT Buyers Research Online", Dezembro de 2010, TechTarget.

EM QUE MEDIDA AS PESQUISAS ONLINE INFLUENCIAM AS EMPRESAS B2B?


ISSO PERMITE QUE O COMPRADOR SELECCIONE, CONVENIENTEMENTE E DE ACORDO COM O SEU RITMO, A INFORMAÇÃO DE QUE NECESSITA. TAMBÉM PERMITE QUE O COMPRADOR “QUALIFIQUE" OS FORNECEDORES ANTES DE QUALQUER CONTACTO COM REPRESENTANTES COMERCIAIS.

“Hoje em dia, os compradores estão a evitar os comerciais nas primeiras etapas do processo de compra. Preferem pesquisar a informação e estão, em certa medida, a usar as redes sociais.” - Chris Koch, Associate Vice President of Research and Thought Leadership, ITSMA.

“Aproximadamente 80% dos comerciais informaram que, quando apresentam uma nova oportunidade a um comprador, quase sempre a concorrência já faz parte da conversa" - Corporate Visions, Quarterly Sales and Marketing Messaging Report (Q3 2010)

As últimas duas afirmações significam que:

  • os compradores estão activamente à procura de soluções - e vão adquiri-las a algum dos fornecedores (o ideal seria que escolhessem as soluções que a sua empresa disponibiliza);
  • em 80% dos casos, os comerciais “chegam tarde” - quando abordam um comprador, este já efectuou pesquisas sobre soluções e respectivos fornecedores.
Ou seja, existe uma lacuna entre o passado recente e o presente em relação aos papéis do Marketing e das Vendas no processo de compras empresariais, tal como apresentado na figura seguinte.

No passado, o comprador poderia tomar conhecimento de uma solução através de uma campanha de Marketing ou de um artigo numa revista especializada. Como não havia tanta informação disponível online, o comprador teria de entrar em contacto com o fornecedor de modo a obter informação e avançar no processo de compra.

Actualmente, o comprador pode, igualmente, tomar conhecimento de uma solução através de uma campanha de Marketing. No entanto, como está convencido que poderá obter online a informação necessária, de modo a avançar no processo de compra, irá começar a efectuar essas pesquisas de modo autónomo.

O que acontece quando o comprador, no seu processo de pesquisa de informação online, encontra um fornecedor que apenas disponibiliza informação que é um mero catálogo descritivo das suas soluções?

A maioria dos compradores não tem problemas em encontrar informação descritiva de soluções. Em poucos minutos podem visitar dezenas de empresas. O problema é que não têm tempo para descobrir como as soluções resolvem os seus problemas, nem como se adaptam às suas necessidades (ver secção "Como Mapear os Conteúdos a Cada Fase do Processo de Compras Empresarial?" e "Anexo A: As Respostas Que os Compradores Querem em Cada Fase do Processo de Compras Empresarial”)

“As nossas pesquisas mostram que consistentemente os compradores querem conteúdos direccionados a eles” - Chris Koch, Associate Vice President of Research and Thought Leadership, ITSMA.

Como lidar com essa nova realidade?

A SUA EMPRESA TERÁ DE ENTREGAR A INFORMAÇÃO CERTA, NO FORMATO CERTO E NA HORA CERTA(CADA COMPRADOR CONSOME INFORMAÇÃO DE MODO DIFERENTE) DE MODO A ALICIÁ-LOS E MOVÊ-LOS ATÉ QUE ESTEJAM PRONTOS PARA COMPRAR. ISSO É CONTENT MARKETING MAPPING.

No post seguinte vamos definir o que é Content Marketing Mapping .. continua...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
