    The Influence of the Digital Environment on Decision-making in Procurement

    in Business

    Today Buyers Meeting Point welcomes two guests from Wake Forest University: Dr. Jim Narus and Dr. Michelle Steward. They have been conducting research into the role of social media in procurement since this summer and have some results to share with us.


    In this conversation, they share some of the results and conclusions from their research, including:



    Some of the trends being seen in the B2C 'customer journey' are relevant to B2B customers as well.
    Procurement is spending more time using technology at the beginning and end of the process - supplier evaluation and management - than during the middle of the process.
    Leading procurement adopters of digital technology are most likely to be new or in tech-savvy industries.


    Dr. Jim Narus serves as a Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Business Markets at Pennsylvania State University. Professor Narus is involved in a variety of international marketing research projects and also regularly teaches abroad. He has worked as a marketing professor at Wake Forest University since January 1988.


    Dr. Michelle Steward is an Associate Professor at the School of Business at Wake Forest University. Her research interests center on issues involving role management and the coordination of internal working relationships, and how each drive superior performance in business-to-business markets.

    in Automotive

    Today's Lunch With Phil show, hosted by Philip Zelinger the President of Ad Agency Online, will discuss the use of social media by Driving Loyalty to support their data base marketing system.


    Automotive advertising agencies must combine the old with the new in an ever changing technology driven marketplace.  Phil uses Driving Loyalty's newly announced Social Marketing Initiative as an example of a next generation vendor that is combining established marketing methods and media with consumer driven social media to extend the reach, frequency and influence of their auto dealer client's marketing messages.


    Driving Loyalty uses email, direct mail, PURL's and an outbound call center to deliver equity and service alerts to qualified customers in an auto dealers DMS.  Their social marketing initiative provides a B2C and B2B platform to enhance their solution for dealers and leverage relationships with other likeminded vendors to attract new business.

    Monday-March 16-321 Topics-1-Biz

    in Marketing

    Welcome to the 321 Monday Morning Show. The 321 9-Step Sales System is about helping Producers do more business. Each Monday show lasts 15 minutes


    The 321 system is primarily for real estate, financial services and select traditional small business owners.


    Ideally, if you are a Producer who needs more than one transaction every other month, more than a random transaction every now and then, or more transactions than working purely on a referral basis, then you will probably find some productive value in the 321 system.


    Specifically, the 321 system is for Producers who want to control their businesses, communicate with both B2B and B2C clients, and learn how to sell without using tricky sales techniques.


    We are the authority on "selling without appearing to sell". Therefore, you will NEVER hear a 321 sales pitch. So, how do you "sell without appearing to sell"?


    Our training, coaching and business development company ONLY takes on new clients who self-identify at least 3 areas where their business falls short. If the business prospect has no need to improve on 3 of 9 business areas, then there are no areas to improve.


    The business prospect must be transparent enough to say there is a need for improvement.


    The 321 Monday Morning Show will highlight a few topics offered in our 321 online or live classes. Our training areas include this abbreviated list of topics:



    Understanding Business.
    How Economics Affects Business
    What is Capitalism
    Transitioning from Employee to Salesperson
    Salesperson Transformation to Consultant
    Marketing vs. Advertising
    Prospecting
    The Sales Process Works
    Always Ask for the Business


    We hope you enjoy today's show on "Understanding Business"
