A recent study by Gartner looked at the marketing activities of B2B specialists, finding that 56% of respondents cited direct interaction as being highly important. To ensure the effectiveness of direct interaction, companies need to look at their go-to-market and sales models, ensuring they offer the necessary value in the buying process.

In a world where 67% of the buyer's journey is now online, old sales approaches like cold calls, PowerPoint presentations and printed brochures are obsolete. In the new sales relationship model, every engagement with a prospect needs to deliver value through insights and consultative approach. Your potential customers are looking for relevant and personalised experience that delivers value in a timely manner.
