  • Smart marketers know that all audiences are not created equal. While it can be beneficial for branding to reach a mass audience, if the goal is to sell products and services, it’s critical to speak to the people who hold the purse strings—and to the people who influence the people who hold the purse strings. In today’s B2B buying cycle, there are often multiple buyers, any of whom may or may not control the budget allocated for a given purchase. And yet, without buy-in from those stakeholders, the sale will never close.

    Join us for am information-packed webinar to learn more about how to identify and appeal to everyone who might impact a buying decision. Melanie Turek, Vice President of Research for Frost & Sullivan will explain why the buying decision-making process is changing, and present data on how best to reach out to multiple influencers.

    As the recently released Consumer Gaming Trends report makes very clear, the game experience is changing. It’s no longer just about a good storyline or how easy the game is to play.

    • Highlights from the Consumer Gaming Trends report about gamer experiences and expectations

    •Tailoring the message to fit each stage of the sales cycle
