Case Studies | 5 Ways They Work for B2B

You may have noticed this site is slowly being reorganized to make it more useful and meaningful. The Case Study overview page has been replaced with other content as part of that process.

Nonetheless, case studies continue to be classic, useful marketing pieces. Here are five reasons why they work for B2B efforts:

  1. Case studies are a great way to tell good stories, and good stories are as effective today as they've been since the dawn of time.
  2. Well-crafted case studies are so versatile, they can be used to market, sell, train, develop, brand and more.
  3. Because they deal with real problems, solutions and people, they're often more persuasive than a generic brochure.
  4. Online, they attract traffic to your website and boost search engine rankings.
  5. In print, they give you and your sales team something useful to share with prospects and customers, and they make great handouts at presentations, workshops and trade shows.
Case studies can be condensed and used as part of another digital presentation, or in some cases, a complete presentation can be built around the case study challenges, solutions, results and examples.

It takes effort and discipline to collect data, testimonials, examples and results then translate that information into something meaningful and useful. This can be challenging for small businesses, but it’s well worth the effort.

Want to promote your business, share your successes, and highlight what makes you and your company different and desirable?

Case studies are only one piece of the B2B marketing puzzle, but they can be an effective way to use what you know to build your business and your brand.
