In fact, B2B marketers say that budget is their number one challenge, as a study by Demandbase and Ziff Davis shows. Search engine optimization/organic search is the primary online marketing tactic used by B2B marketers from the US with 63% of the mentions, followed by social media marketing (60%), inbound marketing/content creation/blogs (53%), search engine marketing/pay-per-click (41%),...
