Buying process has
fundamentally changed

Emergence of the Social B2B Buyer

Customers seek partnerships

Customers are more informed & less responsive
Relationships have become
        more sophisticated
Along comes Social Selling!
 A way of life…
   – Mindset: a philosophy & strategy of individuals and firms
   – Infrastructure: technology, business rules, and processes


 …centered around people…
   – Engage the customer in a collaborative conversation
   – Create a trusted & transparent business environment.


 …creating a win-win!
   – Provide mutually beneficial value to buyers and sellers
   – Respond to the customer's control of the conversation
