Tech Case Studies by the Numbers
Case studies are a powerful marketing tool and feature as a critical part of the content marketing mix for almost every Business to Business (B2B) organization. CMI research shows more companies are using case studies – 77% in 2015 and say they’re highly effective. An article from Forbes ranked case histories as one of the five most important marketing tactics for B2B businesses (in order): in-person events, webinars/webcasts, case studies, white papers, and videos.
Eccolo Media, which surveyed more than 500 tech purchasing decision-makers and influencers, found 56% of enterprise-level purchasers and 23% of small business owners said case studies influenced a technology purchase from them in the past six months.
