Marketing and sales have changed.
They don't work like before. It's harder to break through.
The way your customers buy has changed.They want to do their own research before they talk to you. B2B buyers are 57% through their buying process before first contact with a supplier (CEB). Forrester estimates that buyers may be up to 90 percent of the way through their journey before contacting a vendor.
