Hi,

This will depend entirely on your research. I suggest you do a market research and weigh in which niche or market is most profitable and at the same time, is easier or doable option for you.

If your focus is only traffic then B2C is perfect but if you are selling some items and targeted some specific niche then it will not effect.

B2C is your best option unless you have a very specific product/niche. The possible ways of attracting customers are far better on B2C than on B2B.

In most cases in the internet you are dealing with B2C which is something like some internets shop which sells good or services (sometimes). B2B also present, but more like potential sales page with contact form for discussing business more deeply.

I suggest you go for B2C since it makes your dealing with customers more direct and simpler, with a variety of options to choose from. B2C is actually the most common, but it all narrows down to what exactly your needs are. If you feel B2B is better, go ahead

B2B is more relevant when dealing with more complex business issues, but if you ony want to have some form of online shop, then B2C is the best option for you. Do a market research and consider what you want before making your decision

Business-to-business(B2B) is different from marketing Business-to-consumer(B2C). B2C means that you are selling a product or service directly to the consumer. B2B markets are generally small vertical markets, whereas B2C markets are broader in size. B2B sales require consultative selling sometimes, B2C sales are directed to consumers.
B2B cost of sales starts from a thousand dollars to million dollars, B2C cost of sales starts from a dollar to a few thousand dollars. The lifetime of B2B customers is much higher compared to B2C.

Usually B2B is not your usualy e-commerce or something, there are people with some points to suppliers who can do wholesale to you in 10,50,100 and such items per order, not site full of nice stock and that's it. That's the main difference probably.

B2B is great for two main reasons:

1 It's very clear whether you've made something people want

2 You tend to build to solve your own problem

Both are potentially lucrative, and both have their advantages and their drawbacks. You will need to determine which model is right for you based on your own preferences.

B2C is your best choice except if you have an unmistakable item/specialty. The potential methods for pulling in clients are much better on B2C than on B2B.

Business-to-Consumer (B2C) refers to the process of selling your products directly to the consumer normally called the end user of the product. The market share for B2B transactions is greater than B2C, but customers buying trends is higher in B2C than in B2B transactions. It is true that the cost of a sale for the B2B market can be more expensive than the B2C market. The easiest way to explain this is that a B2B transaction often takes more consideration, involves more people, and requires more decision-makers. B2B clients often need to prove a return-on-investment for their purchase.

If you are asking that question you will achieve best traffic somewhere with B2C cause B2B websites like someone may mentionned do not get much traffic at all cause they serve just like maybe visit card for other companies who may interested in your services.
