A Customer Focused Approach to Growing Your Business That Produces Results
Traditional approaches to B2B marketing and sales can certainly generate leads. But are those leads turning into profitable relationships that grow your business over the long-term?
Your clients don’t want to be sold. They’re tired of spammy emails and a barrage of irrelevant ads and offers. They want answers to pressing questions on their own terms. They want to be listened to, helped and appreciated. They want an easy, enjoyable experience that caters to their unique needs and challenges.
Changing buyer expectations, digital innovation and new business models represent challenges for business owners who can’t keep up. And the rate of change is accelerating in the post-pandemic world.

What Is Customer-Centric Demand Generation?
It is a commitment and a strategy to make and keep great brand promises that customers reward and that competitors cannot match.
Customer-centric demand generation is a mindset and a strategy. First, it is the recognition that your B2B customers have a lot more control and a new set of expectations about how they find and hire businesses like you (5 things every B2B business owner should know about their customers.)
With this new mindset, then it is time to make a strategic commitment to three things.
- Identifying and understanding your ideal customer (learn how to boost your customer IQ).
- Aligning your goals to customer success (get our playbook to building a customer-centric strategy).
- Changing the way you operate to take advantage of this opportunity (how to build a customer-centric sales funnel).
Your biggest untapped source of competitive advantage.
Being customer centric isn’t just about being nice, it’s also smart business strategy. Why? Because it makes you more competitive. Your competitors can never know as much about your customers as you do, and a result, cannot use this knowledge (customer IQ) to gain an advantage over your business.
The more you know about your customers, the better you can deliver awesome experiences and build lasting, profitable relationships. No competitor can truly replicate your unique brand experience. And if the experience is outstanding, customers will reward you with more business.
A service business’s number one job is to make their clients successful.
In order to do this, you have to first identify and understand your customer – your ideal customer, who is your most valuable customer who seeks you out vs. you having to chase them. Your ideal customers are most likely to develop into long-lasting, profitable relationships that generate direct revenue and refer new clients.
Our playbook lays out the steps to begin making your service business more customer-centric.
