Imagine the ROI on your demand programs if you and your salespeople were aligned on what buyers want to know at every stage in their journey. What if your teams worked in sync to earn your buyers’ trust as they evaluate their options and decide whether to purchase from you or your competitors?

Buyer personas were supposed to address this objective, but most are not only a waste of time, they are dangerous, resulting in unused content and actually increasing the friction between sales and marketing.

Adele Revella, CEO of Buyer Persona Institute and author of Buyer Personas: How to Gain Insight Into Your Customer’s Expectations, Align Your Marketing Strategies, and Win More Business, will reveal a plan to align your stakeholders around what matters most to real buyers.
