With all the new businesses in 2020 and 2021, I thought I would share a few online articles about the trends of the B2B & B2C business models. Regardless of the type of business you are creating, do you know who you serve?

During the past year or so many businesses, large and small have had to PIVOT in order to survive, and I have been wondering how many business owners PIVOTed with Intention vs thoughtlessness, and what are they learning….

nonetheless. Here a few really good articles/resources/blogs that may help you expand who your business really serves and how it may survive new market trends!
  1. B2B Business to Business:
    Business-to-business (B2B), also called B-to-B, is a form of transaction between businesses, such as one involving a manufacturer and wholesaler, or a wholesaler and a retailer. Business-to-business refers to business that is conducted between companies, rather than between a company and individual consumer.

Familiar examples of B2C companies include B&H Photos, GameStop, Fashionnova and other like retail companies where individual customers are the end-users of a product or service.
