11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Based on her highly reviewed book, Smart Marketing for Engineers: An Inbound Marketing Guide to Reaching Technical Audiences, Rebecca Geier, and her agency, TREW Marketing, have studied the impact of the digital transformation on the engineer’s buyer journey. Engineers are solving some of the world’s grandest challenges and to do their jobs, and solve these challenges, they need information they can trust, products they can use and services they can employ. As marketers and sellers targeting this highly technical audience, we need to transform how we work, and transform our businesses along the way.
Our buyers are in control of where, when and how they search for, develop consideration and build preference for the products and service they purchase. We as marketers and business leaders have the opportunity to take full advantage transformation, and turn this lost control into intelligence, efficiency, and ultimately create win-win relationships between our companies and our customers. Come to this session to hear about new research on the buyer journey, and how we, as marketers, have the opportunity to lead our companies into, and through, the digital transformation.
