Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.

Imagine having a relationship with each of your customers that’s built on trust. If every one of your connections turned to you for help in solving their greatest challenges at every stage of the sales journey, what would that do to your bottom line? If you could provide every new prospect with relevant, useful insights that would make them more successful, how would your sales goals change? A new model is emerging in the sales landscape. The entire process looks vastly different than it did just a few years ago. Although that’s due in part to constantly evolving tools and technologies, the greater difference is in the mindsets of buyers. Understanding that mindset and catering to it is what catapults a successful seller into rock-star seller status. While this shift brings new possibilities, every stage of the selling process is also rife with new challenges. Greater access means more noise. Countless resources make it difficult to bring real value. These are just a few of the challen

Buying an ERP system that doesn't closely fit your business processes can be a costly mistake. This is particularly true if you try to fit a generic manufacturing ERP solution into a packaging/printing business environment. Reworking a non-industry specific system to meet the day-to-day operational needs of a printing/packaging operation requires significant modifications to the core product. The resulting software can end up so heavily customized that it can be difficult and very costly to maintain.

While ABM is not a new way to strategically market to target accounts, now it is a scalable, achievable strategy that organizations of all sizes can implement to focus on whole lifecycle marketing for key accounts. Marketing, selling to, and supporting your customers at an account-level is not only critical to your success, it’s what your customers expect. Competitive organizations that are focused on engaging their customers across the entire lifecycle, and throughout their buyer journey, need to sell at an account level, understand the influence of the different contacts and speak directly to them. The ABM we practice today is entirely different than the manual processes of days past. Implementing an ABM strategy no longer means an astronomical investment but it does mean increased revenue, focus, and partnership within your organization.

Beyond the time-saving and efficiency benefits, marketing automation enables business processes that are essential to any modern marketing department. For B2B companies, this includes lead nurturing, lead scoring, and lead lifecycle management. For B2C companies, it includes cross-sell, up-sell, and customer loyalty. And for all companies, it includes marketing ROI analytics. Nurture relationships with leads that aren't ready to buy. On average, only 20% of leads are sales-ready when they first come in. This means you need a disciplined process – known as lead nurturing – to develop qualified leads until they are sales-ready. Done well, nurturing can result in 50% more sales leads at 33% lower cost per lead. Retain and extend customer relationships. The marketer's job is far from finished once someone becomes a customer. For most industries, the real value comes from retaining and deepening the customer relationship over time. This includes selling more of the same product to the cus

You have 60 minutes to capture your website visitor’s attention. Within that timeframe, nearly 75% of your customers will visit your site, make a decision on what to buy, and complete the checkout process. If they don’t, chances are, they’ll move on. Regardless of the device a customer uses or the channel from which a customer is referred, nearly 75% of all purchases will be made in that window. And you’ll end up learning whether your customer acquisition and retention costs were worth it. Given the enormity of this statistic, we’re taking an in-depth look at that first hour in this EQ: that happens when, how customers behave, and what you should be doing to convert the most customers possible.

"The days of a consistent and reliable “search, click, buy” process are long gone. In its place is often a complicated web of deliberate steps, each one inching your target consumer closer to the “buy now” button over the course of many days, weeks or months. This continually-evolving journey is no longer a clear-cut funnel, but more of a maze. Each consumer path is unique and uncertain — which means today’s e-commerce seller hasn’t reached its full potential until it’s maintaining a strong presence at every twist and turn. Download this eBook to learn how to leverage a wide range of marketplace and digital marketing tactics to reach consumers at any stage of their journey."
