From Triage to Transformation: Moving from a Reactive to a Proactive B2B Online Channel Strategy

Today, online sales channels are ubiquitous. Some business-to-business (B2B) manufacturers engage online sales channels as part of an intentional, proactive channel strategy, whereas others have been pulled into online sales channels through the unmanaged actions of third parties.

B2B manufacturers with intentional, well-designed, online channel strategies often increase market coverage, enhance customer engagement, and drive sales growth. Conversely, manufacturers that have reactively engaged with online channels often experience downward pricing pressure, destructive channel conflict and brand damage.

Either way, customers are relentlessly engaging online sales channels and digital tools throughout their buying processes. This evolution in the customer journey makes it imperative that all B2B manufacturers purposefully and proactively integrate online sales channels and digital tools into their overall go-to-market strategies. To better understand how to build a proactive approach, we invite you to join FL&A for a webinar regarding intentional online channel strategies. REGISTER
