Gartner finds that B2B buyers considering a purchase spend only 17% of their consideration time meeting with potential suppliers. When comparing multiple suppliers‚ buyers might spend only 5% or 6% of that time spent with any one sales rep.
So it’s on you to do a bang-up job publishing and promoting content that attracts, intrigues and inspires prospects – i.e., everyone on the ever-expanding buying committee – until they’re ready to talk to sales.
Done right, your content will resonate and engage your audience, and lead them down that path to purchase. Even better, it will support them from the start of the buying journey through the post-purchase experience, triggering loyalty and advocacy.
Your goal: Publish content so helpful that you’re seen as the go-to resource on top-of-mind topics that matter most to prospective buyers. Come time to make a purchase – or recommend a solution to a peer – they’re far more likely to think of your company than a competitor that focuses more on selling than helping.
