emotions in b2b buying

Copywriting for Conversion from Barry Feldman

 

Today, we’ll get more insights from Ardath Albee on the subject.

Ardath is a B2B Marketing Strategist and author of Digital Relevance: Developing Content and Strategies That Drive Results.

In this guest post written for Kapost’s Marketeer blog, Ardath examines how B2B decisions are made and to what extent emotions enter the picture.
