Why embracing a Digital Selling Strategy is necessary to your long term success!
Digital selling is not just about selecting a CRM, hosting webinars, having one to one live meetings, or marketing automation amongst many others. The real driver of digital selling has to do with the shift in the buyers preferences and behaviors. According to Gartner, as of 2022, an overall average of 43% of Baby Boomer, Gen X and Millennial customers prefer a rep-free experience.
This is a trend that is only going to increase. Buyers want to do their research, be well prepared and only rely on sales reps if required later in the buying process. In addition, Digital Commerce through the buyer journey is on rapidly increasing making it necessary to find digital methodologies to educate buyers during their research journey.
According to Gartner by the end of 2023, the total number of B2B digital commerce transactions is expected to overtake the total number of B2B direct sales transactions. Time to take a hard strategic look at how you are going to market!
