How it all started


Marc led an industry study with the ZHAW.

In 2021, Marc was the supervisor of a master's thesis at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. The thesis relied on an industry study about B2B marketing automation in the DACH region.


300 C-level executives participated in the study.

Executives shared their biggest challenges and plans. The study gave us new market insights and credibility and increased our reach.


In 2022 and 2023, the study was conducted again.

Respondents were curious to see if and how they had improved their position against previous years.


Zero-party data, readiness-to-buy, lead nurturing

Each annual edition of the industry study allowed us to engage with relevant content with our contacts. We also won timely information about the buying intent of each contact.


Then, it hit us.

Annual industry studies are an ideal annual campaign for B2B companies with long buying cycles.
