The world of B2B Sales has changed significantly over the last few years. All these changes have required the majority of firms to increase SG&A investments; however, companies are still spending on outdated approaches causing significant lag in acquiring new customers. Unfortunately, most organizations do not realize that the changes required are much more than just technology and training. There are significant miss-alignments of their traditional internal sales funnel with a client’s buying process.
The Digital Environment has introduced chaos to both buyer and seller expectations. Buyers’ expectations of sales have moved from education and information gathering to requiring analytical and advisory capabilities in solving business problems. This change is requiring selling organizations to “Stop Selling” and create processes that enable buyers to persuade themselves; ignoring this requirement will only accelerate failure.
The recent changes in B2B sales have been significant, and so fast, it requires an entirely new model and approach to win new clients in B2B Sales.
