B2B and B2C DO NOT EXIST anymore. It is time businesses realise this…..
As a business, when you label an individual as your consumer, there is a very common disconnect which classifies you as a B2C brand. However, the distinction between B2C and B2B is no longer a thing in the market. These days, companies climb the success ladder or fail, based on their ability to build and maintain a long lasting personal relationship with individuals.
Energised by tech innovations, individuals today have very high expectations about what makes a great customer experience and fail to have patience for businesses that do not deliver. This has depicted the interdependence between two major business groups in the industry: B2B & B2C. The growing trends have democratised the marketplace and bridged the digital divide, giving rise to the B2All (Business to All) strategy. As a result, everyone is equal in this new way of selling, whether your target audience are businesses, or an individual customer.

Remember the last time you saw a restaurant ad on a website, and you looked it up on your mobile device? Only to find that the site would not load because it was only readable on a 25 inch PC. Odds are that you never went back to that restaurant and you found somewhere else to go. DON'T let your business be that restaurant! Your possible customers should never pay the penalty for switching devices. Drupal 8's out of the box features lets you create impeccable user experiences on various devices, while handling all your information on the website.

However, with Drupal 8, things are different! Drupal CMS has a powerful back-end which can be managed without any coding skills. This gives marketers the option to handle content authoring with ease and customise accordingly.
