What is B2B Media?

B-to-B media is critical to how business professionals make decisions, buy products, set strategies and more. In an ABM video, veteran b-to-b journalist Matthew Weinstock says, “This is a way to sink your teeth into a subject matter, and become a subject-matter expert, and then learn how to craft that into a story that really impacts the reader.”
