  • RD: hi, I am… thank you to SARTA for having us… reminder that your copies of slides and handouts are in front of you – time check/ housekeeping before diving in.
  • Red:
    B2B buyers primary motivator is risk avoidance – fear of making the wrong decision. That means a lot of research and scrutiny.
    Today’s sites need to work harder - as an educational tool – to aid in the decision making process. Prospects are looking to educate themselves; do their own comparisons, and create their own short lists.
    A generous amount of educational content helps prospects find you and lets them get to know you and your approach in a non-invasive and anonymous environment. As they get more comfortable with you and your offerings, they’ll be more comfortable giving your their names in exchange for the most valuable content.
    What content can you offer to help them in their decision making process, in their comparisons? Or in their jobs? TO help overcome the fear of making the wrong decision?
