B2B Positioning Strategy

The Essence of B2B Positioning

At its core, B2B positioning is about connecting your product or service to a specific problem, or a future problem your target niche faces, in a manner that makes your offerings the unequivocal choice over any alternatives. It’s a strategic foundation that differentiates your offerings in a meaningful way, ensuring that they are perceived as unique and indispensable by your target market. Yet, achieving effective B2B positioning is a monumental task, requiring concerted efforts from every department within an organisation, not just marketing. It demands a holistic approach that encompasses support, sales, R&D, products and services, procurement, and, indeed, marketing, but not solely reliant on it.
