    B2B Marketing Workshop

    Your buyers’ expectations are increasing — they demand a seamless experience as they progress through their purchase process. Their expectations become particularly acute when consuming content and gaining knowledge from digital channels, your website, offline channels, and your salespeople.

    In this special 90-minute workshop, Forrester will present you with different customer buying scenarios and give you the opportunity to:

    • Review unique buyer archetypes and leverage these in developing a customer-obsessed strategy. 
    • Identify digital experiences and content strategies that will resonate with your buyers.
    • Outline an engagement strategy that delivers relevant and relationship-building experiences at scale.
