- Three out of ten B2B and B2C consumers have bought different brands.
- 72% of consumers are now shopping online and making different buying decisions.

COVID has accelerated the shift to digital for B2B decision makers. Habits formed today will become the norm in the future, and decisions made during COVID will need to be sustained into the future.
There are two core strategies that businesses can follow:
- The store-centric approach. This provides consumers with the information they need and is ideal for dentistry, law firms. and retailers, etc, that require that hands-on experience.
