What’s the difference between B2C and B2B customer experience? IS there a difference? Adam and Jeannie discuss in today’s episode.
B2C vs. B2B Customer Experience: What’s the difference?
This may sound like a trick question, but it comes up a lot!
Many B2B companies don’t believe it’s important to invest in customer experience, and some even believe it doesn’t apply to them at all.

It can be challenging for a B2B company to create connections while the relationship is largely process-based. But when played right, B2B companies can see huge returns from investing in customer experience.
So what’s the best way to approach customer experience in a B2B company?
Luckily, both of our hosts have helped many B2B companies create experiences that strengthen lasting connections. Listen in for tips on how to approach customer experience in your business environment.
