Business Buyers Barometer

What proportion of the market is aware of your firm’s brand? What issues are prompting buyers to seek external help? How does your firm’s client service stack up against competitors? What investment in technology and innovation do buyers expect from professional firms?

Business Buyers Barometer (BBB) provides professional firms and B2B organisations with robust data about their clients and markets to help them stay ahead. It is the UK’s leading independent source of insight about the trends influencing buyers of professional services.

How will your firm compete in a low trust environment?

Over half of buyers of professional services have a diminished level of trust in their external advisers – just one of the findings from our 2018/2019 Business Buyers Barometer.

A data-led approach to business development strategy

For nearly 20 years Meridian West has interviewed tens of thousands of senior buyers of accountancy, legal and consulting services about their relationships with professional advisors. The insights are used by professional firms to:

  • Understand changing drivers of buying behaviour
  • Review business development and growth strategies
  • Benchmark the firm’s brand and client experience against competitors
  • Anticipate future trends impacting the professional services sector
  • Engage in smarter targeting, prospecting and business development

Meridian West’s advanced market segmentation techniques will help your firm understand where to priorities marketing and BD resource, and to spot new opportunities for your firm to win work.

Accessing the insight

Professional firms are invited to subscribe to the Business Buyers Barometer each year to gain access to exclusive insight and detailed analysis that will help inform their marketing and BD strategies, and measure the performance of their firm against competitors.
