B2B marketers tasked with lead generation have a decision to make when it comes to capturing prospects with business email addresses versus personal email addresses. The growing debate led to this study by MarketingSherpa in collaboration with NetLine to determine what type of email addresses professionals are using to download long-form content today.

NetLine provides data on the leads generated across the NetLine B2B content syndication network in the past 12 months. MarketingSherpa performed deep analysis into the unique personas and trends within the data to offer important insights for B2B marketers. Key takeaways include:
  • 55% of professionals are using their personal email address to download long-form content.
  • In an era where job-hopping is rampant, the professional email address has a limited timestamp.
