Inska Agency’s Top 10 B2B Digital Marketing Undeniable Trends for 2023 and Beyond

In our experience, the most impactful Business-to-Business (B2B) Digital Marketing Campaigns shouldn’t just sell (or feel like you are being marketed to), they should inform, inspire, educate and/or entertain your audience. 

An effective campaign should elevate your brand by demanding attention, igniting interest, building desire, prompting action – and ultimately convert leads. 

Digital marketing is an ever-changing arena. With technology evolving at a rapid pace, and it can be tempting to adopt every new trend that comes to the surface – it can be tempting to experiment without the experience and expertise that will see your campaign reap the results you are seeking.

But the reality is – if you spread your digital marketing strategy too thin, you run the risk of exhausting your budget and stamina, only to receive subpar results. 

That’s why it’s important to know which B2B digital marketing trends are worth focusing on – especially when you are starting to plan for 2023.

By outsourcing your marketing to Inska Agency you get access to the best B2B Lead Generation, Creative & Digital Marketing “Architects” that are focused on making your business stand out from the crowd and scaling revenue through Sales Qualified Leads and Campaigns that work! One overarching way to make your B2B digital marketing more impactful is by following proven trends. In this blog, Inska shares 10 B2B Digital Marketing Undeniable Trends for 2023 – all of which are here to stay for the foreseeable future.

1. Google Analytics is Changing

Google has announced that on July 1, 2023, they will be terminating their existing Universal Analytics (UA) ‘Google Analytics’, replacing it with Google Analytics 4 (GA4) – a next-generation measurement solution which integrates web and app data, offering new and improved opportunities for digital marketing.

Google Analytics 4 promises the necessary flexibility that companies urgently need in their tracking and analysis. Every interaction is now an event with configurable properties – with real-time reports to understand more about what users are doing on your websites and apps.

While UA was great for tracking website engagement, GA4 offers deeper insights into your customers interactions over a cross-channel dataset – ideal for businesses with marketing sites, eCommerce sites, native apps and web apps.

Why the change? Obstacles like browsers blocking more ads, third-party cookies slowly becoming more obsolete, tighter privacy regulations and changes to products, had made it more difficult for advertisers to measure how campaigns are performing.

The creation of GA4 is Google’s response to shift to a “privacy-first” approach to cross-channel data tracking. The goal is to focus on the user and their journey.

As a flow on effect, this transition to GA4 also placed a greater emphasis on the role of organic content and SEO to lead the users to them. Moreover, propping the importance of building stronger networks and partners.

2. Many Marketing Agencies Are Favouring Alternatives Over Google Ads

Without trying to downplay the value of Google Ads, there are many alternative advertising networks that can be just as effective for paid ad campaigns – with a lower price tag.

Due to the exorbitant growth and rising costs of advertising with Google over the past few years, many marketers are abandoning this big player, in favour of other platforms for their advertising needs, including:

3. The Line Between UX and SEO Is Blurred

Up until recently, websites were rewarded for having the best SEO for Google rankings. However more recently, User Experience (UX) has become equally as important to Google. Ultimately, an incredible UX is better for SEO. This means that in today’s climate, sole reliance on SEO is obsolete.

4. Fundamentals Still Matter

The B2B market is placing more value on useful content, not algorithmic junk that is oversaturated with keywords that amount to meaninglessness. Previously, B2B marketing was largely about getting clicks. Now, people want content that comes from actual humans – content that answers the questions they have, solves problems and adds value to audiences. 

Just look at Google’s recent “helpful content update” that is part of a broader effort to ensure people see more original, helpful content written by people, for people, in their search results.”

5. Create More Engaging & Interactive Content

Engagement is critical to B2B marketing. However, people are exhausted by attempts to trick into engaging with brands. That’s why B2B marketers are turning to useful downloads, calculators, polls, organic posts, assessments, quizzes and human-trained chatbots that offer more value to your target audience. 

For example, a construction company sends out a lead magnet to help people realise the value of engaging a fixed cost contractor. An architectural product manufacturer creates an engaging quiz that makes users look at specification in a new way. And a manufacturer or supplier sets up a calculator to help users determine the return-on-investment on a given product. 

6. Influencers Are for Everyone

Influencer marketing has exploded in popularity over the years. Did you know? The global influencer marketing market size is expected to hit $16.4 billion in 2022, and numbers are slated to rise in 2023. Today’s network effect can’t be overstated due to algorithmic control over social networks.

7. Some Trends are on the Way Out

Some B2B digital marketing trends that have been growing over the past decade are now proving to be on their way out. For example, traction for Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Web3 (the idea for a decentralised internet model) that were predicted to constitute for a large part of the digital marketing landscape are on the decline. 

8. Video Is Still Relevant

Video content continues to remain relevant and impactful to any B2B digital marketing effort – directly relating to User Experience (UX). Videography has the ability to humanise your services and products, ignite more engagement, action and perspective that isn’t possible with static images and photographs. 

9. User-Generated Content Is Taking Charge

User-generated content in the form of content created and shared by the users based on their experiences, testimonials, opinions, ideas, review or feedback, continues to uphold trust, value and credibility in the B2B marketing world. 

B2B companies that lever off user-generated content find that it is a powerful way to build engagement, and gain trust of their audience. Accordingly, consumers are almost 2.4 times more likely to trust user-generated content compared to company-generated content.

That’s why the global user-generated content platform market size is expected to be valued at $18.65 billion by 2028. Now is the time to implement it into your B2B digital marketing strategy.

10. Outsourcing to Digital Marketing Agencies

In today’s competitive digital marketing climate, B2B companies that are struggling to keep up with the latest trends are spending too much time, money and resources on building campaigns. 

It’s hard enough managing a business, when you include the need to stay on top of digital marketing trends, it becomes overwhelming.

Digital marketing agencies like Inska Agency provide the expertise and support you need to take your brand to the next level. Since your success is their success, you can have peace-of-mind and confidence knowing that they have your best interests in mind.

Inska Builds Brands:


As recent as 10 years ago, marketers wouldn’t have used the terms ‘inbound’ and ‘outbound’ to differentiate marketing strategies and tactics. Marketing all fell under one umbrella, and the idea of separating the two was really just in its infancy in many ways.

Because of the vastness of the internet and its ability to connect people to any kind of information they want at any given moment, it has become important to understand not only the differences between these traditional, outbound methods of advertising and promotion, and the newer—largely digital—inbound strategies, but also how these two types of marketing can work together.

When the internet evolved into the ever-present force that we know today, it provided consumers and buyers with the ability to research their problems and solutions much more quickly and easily. With that, people and brands began to distribute content at a rapid pace filling the demand for content. This led to evolved expectations of buyers, and ultimately the birth of inbound marketing.

Inbound and outbound marketing has a number of differences, but much like peanut butter and jelly, both also function best when put to work together. Want to know the differences between inbound and outbound marketing? Below are a few things marketers should understand about outbound vs inbound marketing.


Inbound and outbound marketing have a number of differences, and while some inbound marketing advocates will argue inbound can replace outbound – it’s our belief that the most successful brands are actually utilizing both inbound and outbound strategies together.

To simply answer the question, no, outbound marketing is not dead. Even HubSpot, who coined the term ‘inbound marketing,’ changed its opinion on ads, noting: “If you’re not using advertising in your marketing mix today, you’re likely not doing everything you can to provide customers with helpful, relevant content at every stage of the buyer’s journey.”

Outbound marketing is really best described as the pushing out of ads or messaging to your desired audience and typically in a place where they are engaging in another activity. This is typically in the forms of advertising – both on and offline. This kind of advertising is more about casting a wider net based on a particular audience and hoping to connect with the ones who resonate with your message. Some examples of outbound marketing tactics include:

  • Banner ads on targeted websites
  • Paid social media advertising
  • Industry Publications
  • Direct mail
  • Event sponsorship’s
  • Radio & TV advertising
  • Billboards
  • YouTube ads

While it’s a sales strategy, not a marketing tactic, Inska would also put outbound sales efforts under this category. So, any sales organization that relies on salespeople to uncover and approach (cold call) potential customers is an example of an outbound approach.

This form of advertising has been around for generations and continues to evolve with each new advancement in technology. This type of advertising can provide organizations with several benefits, such as:/p>

  • Exposing people to their brand and products to increase familiarity and brand awareness
  • Evoking particular emotions
  • Creating the right brand story that the organization wants to reflect
  • Driving traffic or purchases (online or by foot) for a particular promotion, event, service, or product

As technology and consumer tastes change, outbound marketers have had to keep pace. The shift towards streaming services, like Hulu, for example, has brought in new types of promotional opportunities and channels to take into account. Similarly, the digital world has opened up entirely new forms of outbound promotions, including social media and search ads. Professionals have also become increasingly adept at interpreting demographic data and creating more targeted promotions.

However, “traditional” media – like local radio and TV – continue to prove their ability to deliver ROI for local advertisers by evolving their ability to connect businesses with consumers in meaningful ways.


Outbound marketing puts your brand in front of your target audience wherever they may be. Inbound marketing, on the other hand, describes marketing where the consumer takes the first step and comes to you. They realize they have a problem, interest, or need and begin to research it, generally online. They use search engines, social media, and recommendations from friends and family to learn more.

Since this form of marketing focuses on engaging with customers actively looking for solutions, it often involves using strategies such as:

  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Organic Social Media
  • Blogging
  • Content Marketing
  • Email Marketing

However, in addition to the most common tactics listed above, inbound marketing is also used in offline tactics like public speaking or publishing a book, and more. At the heart of inbound marketing is the creation of compelling content that helps build thought leadership and answers the questions and addresses the concerns and interests of your target audience.


The focus of an inbound marketing strategy tends to be presenting the brand as a solution to the prospect’s problem by being educational, consultative, credible, and/or interesting. Inbound marketing helps with achieving the following results:

  • Increased branding and a stronger online presence
  • Being found easily in search for the right terms and topics
  • Lead generation
  • Lead nurturing and moving prospects through the buyer’s journey
  • Increasing new business and close rates

As technology has evolved, the strategies and capabilities of inbound marketing have as well. Inbound marketing is typically driven by a marketing automation platform that allows for the distribution and tracking of this content across channels. It also provides sophisticated analytics and lead intelligence that enables both marketers and salespeople to work smarter and faster.

Inbound marketing, overall, can create a more intimate or one-on-one experience with prospects and current customers alike. It’s about building relationships earlier in the buyer’s journey and genuinely being of help to your target audience. If the intention isn’t to truly be educational and to create strategic, relevant content – then you’re not effectively doing inbound marketing.


Inbound marketing and outbound marketing have different starting points, one the brand initiates and the other the consumer. Together, however, they can have a powerful impact on how an organization is perceived. Outbound marketing, for example, with its emphasis on building brand exposure and familiarity, will encourage people to learn more about a business or specific product or service. When people see the brand appear in search results on the search engines, they will recognize the name, making them more inclined to click. Thus, it boosts inbound marketing efforts. One study found that brand affinity can increase click-through rates by 2-3x.

Outbound efforts are also incredibly effective when used to promote the inbound content created for your lead generation efforts. Advertising can increase the traffic and eyeballs to your new eBook or webinar, and therefore it provides you with a powerful call-to-action to use across media while you’re reaching more people than you would organically.

Marketing has changed dramatically over the past few decades, and it will continue to change. We consider this not only our job at Inska (to keep up with the trends and evolve our services and solutions to address these) but also our passion. It starts with truly understanding the different between inbound and outbound and building a plan that incorporates both in an integrated way for your unique brand.

What could Facebook do for your business?

What could Facebook do for your business?

Ever thought of what Facebook could do for your business?

The COVID times have been interesting, while more people are working from home, or not working at all, we predicted that spending would go down. “People are tightening their purse strings,” they said or “consumerism will take a hit as Businesses need to let staff go”.

Now that we are effectively a year into living in the current COVID environment, one thing we can observe is that online spending has increased and consumer confidence has strengthened. Why is that? Well, there are fewer avenues to spend money overseas, going out and about with lockdowns and more time behind a screen at home.

This has led to an interesting increase in online shopping, browsing, researching and even working longer hours. With this comes an increase in sales, leads, a more educated market and an increase in domestic or intra-State travel.

Now is the best time, if ever, to dabble in the digital world. The cost of Facebook, LinkedIn and Google ads are CHEAPER in terms of Impressions (CPM) and Cost Per Clicks (CPCs) as there’s more demand in traffic queries. Therefore making the supply of “white space real estate” for all channel easier.

So what does this mean for you? More Leads. Higher Quality Leads. At a Cheaper Cost Per Lead (CPL). Now is the best time to invest in new territories, to find the right people at the right time, with the right message.

To get the message and creativity right, you need the right agency, with an INTERNAL creative team. Not outsourcing to foreign agencies or platforms, but rather people that understand the nuances of your audiences, the Australian industries you operate with and most importantly, how to get your tone of voice for your brand right the first time.
