Understanding Sales Goals Influencers
The Pursuit of Goals Drive Buyer Decisions:
Market behavior, in its most simplistic form, is about buying and selling. As simplistic as it may appear, market behaviors are filled with complex goal-directed behaviors, activities and choices that ultimately drive buying and selling.
When you can uncover end goals related to buyer decisions and draw connections to pursuit goals, you are offered insights into goal-directed behaviors and choices. This is where true buyer insights reside.
To gain true buyer insights into buyer decisions, companies must excel at understanding the pursuit of goals driving decisions.
It also means companies and their senior leaders will need to shift their gaze towards gaining insights into not only pursuit goals, but also how they are constantly changing.
It’s hard enough to follow and track your buyers decisions based on a multitude of marketing and sales efforts, so how do you uncover your buyers’ goals?
