Why Read This Report

B2B buyers prefer a self-guided journey. While simple commodity transactions can occur without direct sales interaction, more highly considered purchases require B2B marketing and sales leaders to meet the needs of buyers who expect sophisticated, consultative, and technology-enabled salespeople. This report highlights these types of enabled sellers and the role technology plays in elevating their status and rebalancing the power dynamic with buyers. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates reports periodically for continued relevance and accuracy; we revised this edition to factor in new ideas and data.
