A new study by Clario Tech has analyzed which tech giants are wealthier than entire countries.

Tech giant, Apple dominates global industry and has reached a colossal value of $2.2 trillion. This study shows just how large Apple and other tech giants would be if they were recognised countries on Earth.

Looking at GDP versus market capitalization value and revenue, Apple would be wealthier than Italy, Canada and Russia — whereas companies such as Amazon would be wealthier than 92% of the world.

In 2018, Apple became the first company to surpass the trillion-dollar value mark — and has more…

When you launch an advertising campaign, you want results. For B2C products, a digital ad with an incentive, such as a discount or limited-time sale, you can expect to track the ROI in short order. The sales cycle is short.

For B2B businesses, the sales cycle is much longer. 74% of B2B sales to new customers take 4 months or great. Almost half (46.4%) take 7 months or longer. It’s unrealistic to expect fast results when targeting B2B customers.
