The B2B buying process has changed. The most fundamental shift accelerated by the growth of subscription products is the rise of the LOB “business” buyers. These are your executives and mid-level managers in functions like engineering, marketing, sales, etc., who are looking to buy a new product for themselves/their teams.
Business buyers who care deeply about the problem are actual users of the product, which is why they care deeply about the problem they’re trying to solve and are committed to finding the ‘right solution’- much of these contracts with the previous versions of B2B buyers and purchasing functions. This breed of buyers is also far more open to being educated as they go through their buying process.
This paradigm shift presents B2B revenue teams with unique challenges and opportunities.
Buying processes are far more dynamic than before, building themselves along as the evaluation goes. Modern buyers believe in bringing along peers and potential stakeholders( these could be folks from finance, IT, legal, and infosec teams) to address the pain point they plan on alleviating through the procurement process and policies.
What does this mean for your sales front?
Closing a sale can be incredibly hard – especially if you don’t know whom you’re selling to on the other side of the alley. This skewed time with buyers, coupled with shifting B2B paradigms, makes it harder for your seller to enable their primary buyer, drive alignment in the process and bring consensus among conflicting stakeholders.
Many pioneering revenue leaders have already infused their responses to this change into day-to-day workflows of how their teams work to close deals and make their customers successful.
