Case study: How organisations buy technology - mapping the journey with real-life insights

Knowing why and how organisations purchase technology is vital in creating a successful marketing and sales strategy. It goes far beyond knowing what content a CIO is reading. What are their staff doing? Who is doing the research? When are budgets released and much more?

In this session, James Foulkes will draw several Kingpin data sources and campaign reports to shed some light on this buying journey. Critically, these insights are based on proprietary data, meaning it documents what buyers actually do, rather than typical research that shows what buyers say they do.

This session will look at:

  • The broader consumption and engagement habits of the multiple stakeholders involved in an organisations buying team.
  • The geographical differences among IT buyers, and their technology priorities and preferences on formats to engage with.
  • How best to measure attribution and ROI
James Foulkes, Director & Co-Founder, Kingpin Communications
