In today’s BtoB environment, strong, fresh and relevant content can be the single most important accelerator to move prospects through the sales cycle. In fact, relevant content can decrease buyer decision time by almost 20 percent, thus reducing the cost of sales, according to IDG Connect.
To successfully drive revenue for your organization, you must understand your customers’ business problems and then sell to them based on their priorities and needs. Once you’ve accomplished that, you can use the marketing program which will work best to accelerate the buying process and close more deals.
