About Go-to-Market Strategy
with SP Home Run
Ten years ago, B2B buyers spoke with salespeople early on 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.
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.
And McKinsey & Company has discovered that 70% to 80% of B2B decision makers now prefer to make decisions digitally.
"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. Many times 60%, 70%, 80%, or more of the buyer’s journey is over before you’re even aware of a potential prospect."

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.”
This massive change in buyer behavior has proven incredibly challenging for legacy sales teams that are stuck in the past -- cold-messaging people on LinkedIn and begging for 15-minute meetings to pitch their product or service.
But these changes also provide incredible opportunities for those teams that can position themselves as subject matter experts, teachers, trusted advisors, and thought leaders.
With the right go-to-market strategy, you too can get found by the right people, in the right places, at the right time, and most importantly, in the right context.
