“The single biggest challenge of selling today is not selling, it is actually our customers’ struggle to buy.” – Brent Adamson, Distinguished VP, Advisory, Gartner
B2B sales have never been easy, but a key to increasing your sales to business customers is to focus on how difficult B2B buying has become and to develop a strategy to make it easier for buyers to help their company arrive at their buying decision.
According to Gartner, today, business buying decisions are typically made by a committee of six to ten members from an array of departmental disciplines.

Another new year, another round of resolutions!
I’m a goal-oriented person and have been documenting my short- and long-term terms goals for more than 20 years. When looking back, I’m amazed how much I‘ve been able to accomplish on goals I set for myself all those years ago. Some of them, I thought, were audacious. Nonetheless, I set them as my intentions, would reflect on them, and ensured my actions were following the journey I wanted to create. My favorite part of achieving the goal is the act of crossing it off my list!
Every January 1, my family knows I’ll ask for their goals for the year. Probably with dread. But this year, I found a new way to make it easier to be more flexible instead of absolute on your goals.
Instead of a list of goals that we feel bad about breaking by the time you read this article, create one word that inspires you for the year.
What it means for BEV TCO
By Mark Boada, Executive Editor
One of the long-standing selling points of electric vehicles – both hybrids (HEVs) and battery-powered-only (BEVs) – is lower fuel costs, electricity being cheaper to buy than gasoline or diesel. Given that electric vehicles’ purchase prices are higher than comparable models powered by internal combustion engines (ICEs), that differential is supposed to make EV total cost of ownership competitive if not superior to the alternative, as long as you hold onto your EV long enough.
Now, this fuel cost advantage isn’t the only one EVs are supposed to deliver. Other operating costs are also lower, as fully electric cars and SUVs don’t have spark plugs, transmissions, radiators, oil and fuel filters, exhaust systems, and other gasoline-specific components that require routine maintenance. In addition, their brakes last longer, since their stopping power is supplemented by the inertia of the electric motor.
But for fleets looking to add BEVs to their inventory, there’s a fly in the ointment.
Sixty-four cars and SUVs qualify for an award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety under new criteria that prioritize the protection of pedestrians in addition to vehicle occupants.
Among automakers, Mazda has the most Top Safety Pick+ awards with five — for the Mazda 3 sedan, Mazda 3 hatchback, Mazda 6, CX-3 and CX-5, and earns an additional Top Safety Pick for the CX-9.
To qualify for a 2020 Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ award, vehicles must have good ratings in each of the Institute’s six crashworthiness evaluations. They must also have good or acceptable headlights and available front crash prevention that earns advanced or superior ratings in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.
