Deana Goldasich, Founder of Well Planned Web recently wrote an article that was published on LinkedIn Pulse titled ‘B2B Buyers Have Changed. Have You?’.
Deana’s article takes a look at the amount of research B2B’ers perform prior to a purchase, why cold-calling simply doesn’t work because you can’t get anyone’s attention and what marketers need to do to get a B2B buyers’ attention.

All of that and more today with Deana Goldasich on this special, Content Marketing World 2015 episode of your A Slice a Day.
