Beyond the Pitch

Is Your Website Built For Today’s Buyers?

When: 7:30am
Where: Rev1 Ventures | 1275 Kinnear Rd. Columbus OH 43212


In this session, we will help you align your website and online presence to market and sell the way your customers buy.

Today, the wealth of information available has made customers feel more powerful and better able to lead themselves to successful buying decisions. Research tells us customers will complete more than two-thirds of the buying cycle on their own before they contact a business to make a purchase.  Marketing and sales teams that operate in their traditional silos are falling further behind those that align their strategies to better understand and engage buyers.
