B2B SELLING HAS CHANGED FOREVER

The companies that master digital selling will:

  • Win twice as many new business
  • Grow 3 times faster
  • and are 5 times more profitable

Sales Strategy

Sales productivity has declined by 14% in the last five years. Less than 49% of sales reps achieve their quotas and 63% of sales leaders don’t know if they will hit their sales targets. B2B buyers have changed dramatically and Sales strategies must also change in order to continue to win sales in the era of the Digital Buyer.

Digital Content Strategy

Nearly 70% of the B2B buyer’s journey is completed before the buyer contacts any potential vendors. Now, more than ever, unless you provide relevant and compelling content, you are practically invisible to your digitally savvy buyers. It is content, not brand, that separates you from your competitors.

Metrics & KPIs

High-level sales and marketing objectives must be broken down into execution-level details. Daily and weekly metrics and Key Performance Indicators are where strategy meets execution, giving Leadership full transparency, increasing agility, flexibility, and responsiveness to changing customer needs.

Intelligent Automation

90% or more of sales and marketing activities can be automated. Automation increases business agility, enables transparency, reduces human errors, and significantly increases productivity--when done right. Intelligent Automation is about designing your marketing and sales workflows with flexibility, transparency, and agility in mind so you can fully realize top ROI on your sales and marketing expenditures.

Digital Marketing

B2B selling today is at least 70% digital marketing. Buyers rarely take calls or respond back to emails, preferring instead to do their own research. Digital marketing is about targeting the best prospects and serving them the information they need to build a trusting partnership with your company even before sales begins.

Digital Content Strategy

Nearly 70% of the B2B buyer’s journey is completed before the buyer contacts any potential vendors. Now, more than ever, unless you provide relevant and compelling content, you are practically invisible to your digitally savvy buyers. It is content, not brand, that separates you from your competitors.

High-Quality Lead Generation

Some 60% of sales leaders say their #1 challenge is quality lead generation, and their sales teams are spending 29% of their time trying to generate their own leads.
In the era of Digital Selling, it is quality, not quantity that leads to consistent sales results. High Quality leads convert 10X higher than average leads, and lead to a 72% increase in sales.
