Let’s dive into fundamental ideas and approaches to make GTM initiatives successful in order to support B2B marketing, sales, and customer success teams as they navigate the present and impending stormy financial climate. This advice was taken from dozens of interactions with GTM executives over the course of the last 60 days regarding what teams are doing to maximize performance in uncertain times.
Stop looking for leads and focus more on your consumers and the best opportunities
First and foremost, GTM teams need to cease producing and pursuing arbitrary leads, accounts, and markets that know little to nothing about your business or products. Instead, give priority to current clients to strengthen bonds. Work to retain clients and customers that have been in your pipeline and have been engaged with your business. Yes, this strategy should always take precedence. However, there are currently few options available since buyers, sellers, and all other parties engaged in the process are wary.
Embrace and collaborate with your present clients
Your client base is the biggest and most significant business potential presently present in your environment. This is more than simply the conventional customer marketing or the always-important customer voice listening; it’s a more planned, purposeful effort to surround your consumers and aid them in navigating unpredictable times.
In order to understand your consumers, their present situation, and their goals, start by utilizing the customer data and account information you have gathered. Leaders might plan an orchestrated tour of clients to get in front of consumers, where executive sponsors, solutions specialists, and small teams are established inside the organization to concentrate on certain clients.
Review the last 18 months of your prospect and opportunity pipeline
GTM teams should provide top priority to accounts where interest, engagement, and previous discussions are active or have been inactive with the same zeal and use of data that you devoted to interacting with consumers.
The revenue operations, data science, sales, and marketing teams collaborate to identify the accounts in this prospect endeavor before creating a plan to earn their business.
Use original strategies and creative thinking. Be prepared to be accommodating to the needs of the consumer. Agility may be used to improve client buying behavior. As part of your relationship agreement, use your solution or add certain resources to assist the business in achieving quick ROI and return during challenging circumstances.
Bolster your partner and channel ecosystems
Organizations can look to partners with specialized knowledge to give strategy and execution help in order to provide more resources and dependable knowledge to both customers and prospects.
Similar to the customer interaction strategy previously described, it is now time to set priorities, meet with like-minded partners, develop GTM plans and co-create solutions to address certain prospects’ and customers’ needs.
Many teams are refocusing their sales and marketing efforts to focus on developing stronger alliances and solutions. Sharing consumer data with your partners to uncover possibilities and create better solutions should be part of the efforts in the spirit of mutual trust and cooperation.
Don’t wait just decide
Nobody truly understands what the upcoming year will bring. But experience has shown that if we remain focused, adaptable, and quick-thinking, the probability of success rises.
The good news is that GTM leaders now have access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise not previously available.
