Get the Skills You Need With B2B Marketing Training Courses
B2B marketing training courses have historically focused on helping marketers drive awareness and run campaigns at the top of the funnel. Those campaigns generated interest and demand, but at some point, there was always a handoff to sales, who would ultimately guide the buyer toward a decision.
According to industry experts, those lines have blurred. 80 percent of the sales cycle is now taking place in digital or remote settings. And that has big implications for the role of marketing in your organization.
Buyers are doing more research on their own, forming their views, and weighing their decisions before they ever talk with sales. Those conversations are happening primarily online. And marketing is now tasked with moving both prospects and existing customers further down the funnel—up to and including the point of decision.
B2B organizations that have been training sellers now need to provide training programs for marketers to learn how to influence decisions and drive more revenue in the digital sphere.
most b2b marketing is forgettable, so become memorable
Research from Corporate Visions and DecisionLabs shows the primary factor that drives decisions is memory. Your buyer interacts with your marketing in one moment, but they decide to purchase later on. So, if you want to influence those decisions in your favor, your marketing needs to stick in your buyer’s mind as buyers move through their decision-making process.
In fact, 87 percent of B2B marketers are unsure or don’t believe their audience acts on their content. And even though the vast majority of marketers (91 percent) agree that it’s important for audiences to remember their content, only 26 percent feel confident that the marketing materials and content they produce are, in fact, memorable.
Your marketers might be spending a lot of time developing messages, creating content, running events, and trying to gain buyer’s attention online. But if they don’t understand what not only gets people’s attention but also motivates them to act, all that activity won’t help you reach your business goals.
