Report Highlight: Bringing Anonymous Buyers Into the Light

< 1 min

B2B sellers who rely on inbound leads to find buyers are missing out on huge opportunities. 

Less than 3% of today’s B2B buyers identify themselves to vendors by filling out a form. To make matters more complicated, 95% of the buyer journey takes place outside of your website.

So, where are your prospects spending their time, and more importantly, how can you find them? In Chapter 3 of our ebook, 2023 Annual Report: Unlocking the Revenue Potential of AI for B2B, we took a closer look at this challenge.

Buyer Activity Lives in the Dark Funnel

While most of your potential customers aren’t likely to fill out a form, they are leaving traces of anonymous research behind that can be used to identify hot accounts. These virtual breadcrumbs are left on sites like:

  • Industry publications
  • Blogs
  • Social networks
  • Product review sites
  • Vendor sites

We call this anonymous research activity the Dark Funnel™. Fortunately, there are tools to illuminate this unknown activity.
