B2B buyers have evolved. It’s not like they had a choice. Faced with overstuffed inboxes, saturated social feeds, and an Internet now bursting at the seams with branded content, B2B buyers had no other option but to become proficient at ignoring the irrelevant.
Think about it; what if instead of ignoring 90% of cold outreach like they do now, B2B buyers actually acknowledged and responded to it? They’d be too tethered to their phone and email to get anything done.
