Article summary

G2 Buyer Intent captures enriched data about buyers researching your product across G2. Buyer Intent signals are triggered by a variety of actions, including interacting with your product profile page, comparing your product to a competitor, or viewing alternatives to a product in a shared G2 product category. This data enables your sales, marketing, and customer success teams to identify where an organization is on their buyer journey.

By enabling the G2 + Bombora integration, you can receive information for up to 25 Bombora Buyer Intent topics directly in my.G2.


This section details every step you need to take to implement the G2 + Bombora integration.
