Go-to-Market (GTM) Strategy with SP Home Run

Ten years ago, B2B buyers spoke with salespeople early in their pre-purchase research.

However, that's completely changed. As search engines, social media, voice-powered personal assistants, streaming video, podcasts, webinars, and review websites have all become mainstream, your best prospects now are doing tons of self-directed research on their own before they’re open to having a sales conversation with someone from your company.

So much so that many times, 60%, 70%, 80%, or more of the buyer’s journey is over before you’re even aware of a potential prospect.


Gartner and the Future of GTM

The latest research from Gartner found that 83% of a typical B2B purchase decision -- including research, comparing options, and evaluating pricing -- happens before a potential buyer engages with a vendor.


McKinsey and the Future of GTM

McKinsey & Company has discovered that 70% to 80% of B2B decision makers now prefer to make decisions digitally.


LinkedIn, Edelman, and the Future of GTM

In its B2B Thought Leadership Impact Report, LinkedIn, in partnership with Edelman, concluded that “thought leadership remains critical to customer engagement, but breaking through the noise is harder than ever.”
