The future of business, starts with human-to-human interaction

THE LEADING EXECUTIVE THOUGHT LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY

THE ONLY WAY IS CONTENT-DRIVEN CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT

It’s time to get a solid grasp on curated content-driven customer engagement. Why? Because traditional ways of engaging with customers are not working anymore. Customers are fed up with transaction and product-driven conversations and pitches. Our community survey among executives revealed that executives want to talk with peers, real peers, with thought leaders and partners that truly understand their organization’s needs and where they are coming from. If you aren’t in a position to have your content curated and show customers that you understand their business, industry, and needs, you have to be.

As a partner, you invest in finding out which company is looking for services. So why not participate in events, preferably the kind where companies are present in large numbers and also get a large booth. Well, because it rarely works. If your target audience is an executive and decision maker, he or she most likely will not drop by the booth for brochures, free goodies or a talk.

Why? Because they don’t like to be sold to and are avoiding situations such alike. Even if you don’t have a transactional or product focused pitch or approach, it becomes harder to truly engage with your target audience. Because the sales stigma is still there and executives like to choose who they invite for coffee at their office – instead of sales reps inviting themselves over for a cup of coffee to see how they can help.

Nowadays, executives rather attend curated events and engage with peers and thought leaders in a non-transactional setting. The future of business begins with curated human-to-human interaction.
