It’s a crowded and noisy world for B2B businesses. Your prospects and potential partners are demanding speed, transparency, and actionable insights as they make considered purchases – from smart extended offers to new assortment plans.
B2B buyers are 5x more likely to engage with sales professionals who provide new insights about their business, according to a recent study of 1,500 B2B buyers from LinkedIn.
74% of these B2B buyers conduct more than half of their research online before making an offline purchase according to Forrester, who declared:
“This buyer dynamic changes the role of B2B marketing in a fundamental way….that’s where the prevailing knowledge about ‘today’s buyer’ will fail you. You gotta know YOUR buyer.”
(Emphasis theirs – but that’s where we come in.)
Furthermore, Gartner predicts that by 2018, 70% of e-Commerce will move from differentiated B2C and B2B models. The anticipated model will focus on individual buyer experiences.
