Retail keynote speaker, Cate Trotter spotlights one of the biggest mistakes B2B businesses make and how it costs them profusely. Every top B2B buyer turnoff, she notes, comes down to sellers’ attitudes toward buyers: namely, most push to make a transaction, but show little to no interest in building a relationship. More specifically, they talk too much about themselves, treat the buyer like a customer rather than a partner, and don’t attempt to get to know the buyer’s company, market, or challenges.
Trotter offers a few simple ways that vendors can turn this around and get ahead, sharing examples of people and businesses at the forefront of change who are already creating the “future of retail.” She makes the case that “the whole industry needs to shift its mindset from selling to serving.”
