To the B2B customer, whether you’re a large, recognizable brand or a boutique firm plays a small role.
Gaining trust through the selling cycle and answering the following question.
Can you solve my problem through your product/service?
 
Marketing Initiatives of Successful B2B Companies.

If you’re targeting a B2B market, emotions and visuals play a vital role in sales. Your entire content strategy needs to be designed with this in mind. This includes the copy on your website, the tweets you send out, blog posts and every other piece of content that you publish.

Think about Apple’s marketing copy for every new product they launch; it’s simple, and emotional.

Brands that do will outperform their competition.

Do you start with Why? or Who?
 
The Power of Why and Who. #sinek #why #who #sales http://ow.ly/PlvpF
Great salespeople always start with Who. Then they move to Why, What, and How. And then eventually to When, and How Much. They know that far more important than what you say is getting to the right person to say it. If you don’t get to the person with authority (with proper decision-making power [...]

Customer Service Oriented, Friendly, Fast, Quality Work and Pricing very reasonable! Needed my garage door rollers replaced. Had called two other companies, and then I called Robert. Had to leave a message, to my surprise within a few minutes, Robert called back. He was professional, and wanted my business, and got it done that afternoon. Not like the other companies who weren't as responsive, and didn't see to care. I highly recommend Robert at Manna Garage Doors.

I've been a loyal Dryve Cleaners customer for 10 yrs.Helen the mgr. has a habit of not returning phone calls on past problems. This time, I had two shirts that weren't cleaned and one had stains all over the pocket. After three trips, I finally got a direct number from the employee. My ear is still ringing from Helen yelling at me the customer. She ruined a Tommy Hilfiger shirt. Hung up on me twice, third time she wouldn't answer. I've never been so rudely treated as a customer ever. Unbelievable! Someone needs to call Helen and give her some Customer Service training. As for Dryve Cleaners, in Germantown/Collierville, that was the final straw!
