Today, the internet has changed the way buyers discover solutions. More people are meeting and researching vendors online than ever before. Your ideal customers are reading blog posts and articles, checking Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn profiles, and forming opinions based on what you say and share online.

If a competing vendor appears smarter, more interesting, or more reliable than you, your buyers will reach out to them first.
These online engagements have changed the rules of buyer/brand communications. So how can you and your company form meaningful relationships with buyers who are getting to know you long before they’ve been introduced?

This study identifies several key areas of market opportunity and provides criteria by which vendors can be judged now and over the next 5 years.
