The Age of the Self-Serve Buyer

TrustRadius CEO Vinay Bhagat talks about how to adapt your marketing in the age of the self-serve buyer.

B2B tech buyers are evading your marketing, and prefer to self-serve their buying journey. 57% of buyers make purchase decisions without ever talking to a sales rep. While the pandemic shaped buyer behavior toward self-service models, there’s one group of people who were already headed that way before the pandemic happened: millennial buyers.

Learn what the modern marketer needs to do to be successful in the age of the self-serve buyer: 

  • Retire ineffective marketing tactics and build easy-to-use self-service models
  • Find new ways to identify in-marketer buyers 
  • Align with sales teams to build a new go-to-market (GTM) strategy 
  • Activate the customer voice wherever buyers are doing research
