Business Buyer Insights XL 2014: 2 mythes ontmaskerd

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.
