Here are five survival must-have strategies.
1 – Isolate and insulate – security begins at the beginning and never ends.
Starting and growing a business is not just digital.
It is but virtual and security occurs with everyone and everywhere and on every device.
2 – Communicate – more than constant emails, webinars, time to personalize beyond the buyer.
Forrest said “they don’t want office calls, demos, “after hours” events.
These new buyers have a new lifestyle, recognize that, embrace it and adapt faster.
3 – Iterate – AI is just one example of a “firestorm” of technology.
There will also be thousands of new technologies, processes, devices coming.
With more that may and more likely may not impact next-generation buyers.
But be ready to accommodate to do more.
Who are socially, environmentally and politically different.
4 – Collaborate – realize you want to be their go-to-first for anything.
But ready that more and more parts, products will be needed and used.
Marketplace competition brings new ideas and opportunities.
5 – Innovate – show you are innovating faster without dictating.
but involving, demoing, immersing and opening to new everything.
Bottom-line – 68% buying self-service is only going to rise by all companies.
This is a “red alert” as “obliterate” is coming next.
