Let’s face it: in today’s B2B landscape, the buyers call the shots. Buyers today are proactive, research
their own options, and often include many decision makers rather than just one who can be wooed on
a golf course or over dinner.
So, where does that leave the salesperson? To succeed in this new landscape, sales professionals must
understand how the buyer’s journey has changed and unlock the advantages that data analytics and
statistical modeling can offer. Sales and marketing teams must also learn how to align their efforts to
present a truly coordinated experience.
Read this paper to learn how to take advantage of untapped opportunities for helping sales teams
evolve in today’s buyer-empowered landscape.
Engaging potential buyers in today’s complex and noisy B2B environment demands time, effort, and intelligence. All sellers can do is hope to guide them along their journey and influence their decisions. But even the best prospects are delaying interaction with sales and are often unresponsive to traditional marketing tactics. This is forcing organisations to use relevant, timely, and holistic data to guide interactions and communications across all channels.

Today’s buyers are more empowered than ever before. They engage with brands and companies through their own research across multiple channels, long before marketing has the opportunity to engage with them directly. Potential buyers don’t become customers overnight—they require marketing over time as they self-educate and build trust with a company. With customer nurturing, B2C marketers can communicate consistently with buyers cross-channel and throughout the buyer journey—addressing the gap in time between when a customer first interacts with you and throughout the buyer journey, before a customer purchases, after they purchase, and to drive repeat purchases.

Over the past 10 years, the Internet has provided unprecedented access to information. Consequently, B2B buyers are constantly online learning about industry trends and innovative solutions to their pain points. Given their busy schedules, buyers have grown accustomed to the convenience of researching and comparing multiple options online, narrowing their choices independently of the vendor and, only then, engaging with sales.
While buyers have always made the final purchase decision, in today’s world, the vendor is not given an opportunity to engage until the buyer is close to a choice. Today, the buyer is in control of their own journey.
With the right execution, an effective B2B lead nurturing program begins as soon as a prospect interacts with your content, and continues until a relationship has been built, the lead is qualified and forwarded to a sales person for follow up - which can take months.
However, nurturing has proven to be extremely worthwhile, as half of all buyers' inquiries eventually result in a purchase.
