How do B2B buyers decide on large investments? Any sales or marketing professional would like to have more insights in this process. In the annual Dutch survey for the B2B-community, by spotONvision and TNS NIPO, we looked at B2B-investments of more than €100.000,-. The survey is called Business Buyer Insights XL this year.
Today 2 myths debunked:
Myth 1: All B2B buyers go online
The influence of ‘online’ for large contracts is far smaller than we would think. This is partly due to the fact that a buyer knows his/her long list pretty quick and even when still in doubt, he/she simply asks a colleague or peer.
Myth 2: First contact takes place after 70% of the buyer journey
The first contact of a business buyer with a supplier takes place far quicker than we tend to think. The 70% myth can be debunked as the buyer knows exactly who to go to, and even more he knows who to contact within a supplying company.
