Do you and your sales team struggle to attract and engage the right kinds of prospects?

Ten years ago, B2B buyers spoke with salespeople early on in their pre-purchase research. 

However, today that's completely changed. 

And we’re not going to sugar-coat it: Most teams are not even close to being ready to confront this once-in-a-generation change in purchasing behavior -- that’s approaching at jet speed whether your company is prepared or not.

As search engines, social media, voice-powered personal assistants, streaming video, podcasts, webinars, and review websites have all become mainstream, your best prospects now are doing tons of self-directed research on their own before they’re open to having a sales conversation with someone from your company.

So much so that many times 80% (or more) of the buyer’s journey is over before you’re even aware of a potential prospect. 
  • Gartner found that 83% of a typical B2B purchase decision -- researching, comparing options, and evaluating pricing -- happens before a potential buyer engages with a vendor.
  • McKinsey & Company has discovered that 70% to 80% of B2B decision-makers now prefer to make decisions digitally.
  • In its B2B Thought Leadership Impact Report, LinkedIn, in partnership with Edelman, concluded that “thought leadership remains critical to customer engagement, but breaking through the noise is harder than ever.”

This massive change in buyer behavior has proven incredibly challenging for legacy sales teams that are stuck in the past -- cold-messaging people on LinkedIn and begging for 15-minute meetings to pitch their product or service.

But these changes also provide incredible opportunities for those teams that can position themselves as subject matter experts, teachers, trusted advisors, and thought leaders.

And that’s why we built Go-to-Market Strategy Reboot Camp: to help you and your team learn how to attract the right clients to your business in the modern buyer's journey.
