Past: Product / Service (no customer need identified) technology based upon Marketing and time efforts to create the need.

Now: Customer need - Product design
Market research, audience Segmentation, identifying the right promotional message and contact channel for the various segments.

The processes of customers changing their buying preference because they find better and/or cheaper products and services elsewhere
Win-Back Customers
Loyal Customers
Less vulnerable

Particular customers needs, or reactions to previous offers.

Good opportunity for cross-selling/up selling

Communication should be made ASAP!

B2B and B2C marketing operates differently, they cannot use the same software.
B2B (Business-to-business)
“Understand its own customers better”
B2B companies have smaller contact databases than B2C
The amount of sales in B2B is relatively small

In B2B there is less figure propositions, but in some cases they cost a lot more than B2C item
Relationships in B2B environment are built over a longer time
Involve further IT solutions
B2B look for complementary core competences
NYC - Know your customer! Needs, requirements, trends, seasonality...
Knowledge of the customer’s business requirements
Continuous Improvement
How you help your customers be better off…
How the customer’s business operates, what its limitations and concerns are, how the product or service fits into the customer’s business, what requirements may be part of the purchasing process.

So close that you tell them what they need well before they realize it themselves".
