Understand the Process
It’s easy just to focus on a prospect decision date, but smart sales professionals stay close to the process and help and advise the buyer team through it.
Don’t assume that buyers don’t need support through the process, they do. The more you understand what has to happen in their organisation, the more you are positioned to provide relevant information, ideas and solutions from working with other companies similar to them.

Different contacts, with different roles, responsibilities, challenges, criteria, concerns, priorities and so on.
