Now, once you become aware of vendors. How do you then learn about them? Where do you go for information? What type of information are you seeking for you in order to learn, try, and buy from vendors? So for example; maybe you go to the website and the information on the website could be pricing or product features or you’re able to get a free trial or you see social proof and use cases so maybe you can walk us through what you look for.
Yeah and for me, I’m one of those buyers that definitely loves to do that 80% or 90% of my research on my own. I definitely don’t like being
cold emailed and really dislike the cold messages on LinkedIn. I almost feel like you’re invading my personal space.
I like to go to the website, I also use G2 and Captera to look, not necessarily to disqualify someone, but just to understand what those pros and
cons look like based on their ratings.
Because someone can have a slightly poor rating but all right if you look at the cons those won’t necessarily relate to my needs so I kind of grab and I can write those things off and then I continue to learn on my own and then and then I look to when I feel like I’m ready. When I feel like there’s a fit then I like to
jump into a buying cycle and kind of get the ball rolling to prove the case from the company’s side.
So you go to the website and then you know if and when you need sales to help you’ll hit him up?
