Breaking through the Content Clutter: Using Personalization to Engage Buyers
By Seismic | 2/12/2020

Across today’s rapidly changing global marketplace, companies are learning to conduct business in new ways. People are working remotely more than ever before. Meetings and conferences are moving to teleconferencing formats. Customers are spending increasing amounts of time online. In short, digital interactions have become the primary, and in many cases, the sole method of internal and external communication.

Among the enterprise teams that are adapting, business to-business (B2B) sales may be facing the greatest challenges of all. Why? Because B2B sales executives traditionally grounded their success on being able to engage with buyers and nurture relationships face to-face. But that approach may no longer be possible. Instead, sales executives need to rely increasingly on technology to build and nurture relationships with buyers. To ensure business continuity, they need to recognize that personalizing digital content is now a critical capability for enterprise sales.

Experience management: Lay the foundations for a successful business recovery today
By Qualtrics | 20/8/2020

Businesses are operating in new commercial contexts as they work to accommodate changes and restrictions few saw coming. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the way customers are perceiving and interacting with experiences brands deliver during this time. If brands are going to remain relevant, considered and rewarded for their efforts right now, it’s absolutely essential they are able to deliver in the moments and areas that matter.

But even as we continue to navigate the unchartered waters of the COVID-19 crisis, brands must also keep a firm eye on how the now feeds into the next if they’re to retain the hearts and minds of customers as the economy and society recovers. Because it’s today’s experiences that will influence how you’re remembered tomorrow.

Determining our Humanity

‘Business as unusual’ is a term my organisation has adopted to describe the professional aftermath of COVID-19 and the rest of the tragic events this year. Social distancing, perspex screens at counters and masks in all manner of situations have introduced us to a world we were never familiar with. But, as we keep being reminded, this is the new normal. This is the world we created. Yet we also have the opportunity to create something else.
