The B2B & B2C buying process has fundamentally changed, and prospects spend more time on the web doing independent research, obtaining information from their peers and third parties via Google /Bing searches and social media research.
The traditional method of only using outbound selling no longer applies—today’s sales teams must engage in inbound marketing and social selling, & use Web 2.0 technologies to better listen and engage with prospects.
More and more prospects are relying on the content found in social media channels and search engines to educate themselves about a company’s brand, products and services Prior to contacting a service provider. As a result, Social Media + Search play an influential role in the B2B decision-making process.
