Questions about business to business research?
Q. Why are mixed methodology studies more common in B2B?
A. The complexity of B2B markets means that multiple research methods often need to be used in order to provide answers or solutions for strategic decisions
Q. Why are B2B costs higher than B2C costs?
A. B2B transactions often take more consideration and involve more decision makers. The B2B consumer will more often than not need to be able to prove a return-on-investment for their purchase
