FROM THE EDITOR

 

Let this sink in: "Despite the conventional wisdom that big ticket sales require in-person contact, 20 percent of B2B buyers said they would be willing to spend more than $500,000 in a fully remote/digital sales model. And 11 percent of all B2B buyers would spend more than one million."

 

That research, courtesy of McKinsey, means selling requires the right content to enable the digital buyer's journey. This is why you need content and need it now. Not next year, not next quarter, not next week. Now.

 

And yet many organizations have internal roadblocks and arduous approval processes that make it painful to create and approve content. This week's featured article reminds us to get out of our own way so that content can see the light of day as soon as possible.

 

Thanks for reading,
