"The Buyer's Journey" - and Why Our 2017 Conference Theme Is So Relevant
Buyers don't want to be prospected, demoed, or closed. These steps (while relevant in our world of sales and marketing) add zero value to the buyer. The more we walk in the shoes of our customers and prospects, the more effective we can be in engaging them and ultimately generating the results we seek. The design of this year's conference will educate both Sales and Marketing professionals on how to successfully attract, convert, close, and retain our prospects and customers.
