G2 Data & Solutions Power Revenue Outcomes for Sales Teams

Content, Buyer Intent data, and Review offerings prove critical for B2B software organizations’ go-to-market strategies

G2, the world’s largest and most trusted software marketplace, has strengthened its solutions for sales teams, contributing to higher-converting prospects as well as increased deal size, win rates, and sales velocity.

In addition to G2’s existing Content, Review, and Buyer Intent data offerings, the company has also rolled out several integrations with leading sales technology providers as part of its G2 for Sales initiative — helping teams improve workflow efficiency and drive revenue outcomes faster.

“G2 has long been recognized as an effective tool for B2B marketing strategy, but our solutions can and should be a secret weapon for sales teams too”

G2 for Sales gives selling teams a competitive edge

G2’s verified and authentic customer feedback provides selling teams with a third-party validated source to meet their prospect and customer base with — increasing credibility, aiding the buyer research process, and expediting the sales cycle. Additionally, G2 customers can compile insights from their customers’ voice and package them into selling assets to use without requiring marketing or design resources. With G2 solutions, thousands of B2B software companies see increased business outcomes, including Gong.

“We know that 77% of sales reps’ time is spent on non-revenue-generating activities. As a sales leader, this is an astonishing loss of productivity,” said Lesley Ronaldson, VP of EMEA Sales at Gong. “While this challenge is exacerbated in the current economic environment, we have an opportunity to boost productivity and drive growth with data, AI, and apps that are purpose-built for revenue teams. The Gong Revenue Intelligence Platform uses the largest dataset of customer interactions in the industry to help revenue teams increase productivity, predictability, and growth. We’re proud to bring G2’s intent data to our platform to provide sellers with another powerful signal for deal execution.”

Considering that just 5% of a company’s ideal customer base is in-market at a given time, knowing who that 5% is and reaching them at the right time in their purchasing journey is critical. This is where G2 Buyer Intent data comes in, surfacing crucial account intelligence for teams, including the research, engagement, and buying patterns taking place on G2’s software marketplace.

Research activity that is indicative of a buyer’s intent to make a purchase, combined with competitive insights, empower sellers to deeply personalize the sales process to the buyer’s needs and expectations. There’s a high likelihood a software vendor’s customers and prospects are searching on G2, considering that 90 million buyers visit G2 annually to research software for their business in over 2,100 different categories — from CRM and Video Editing to Cloud Data Security and Desk Booking software.

G2 also offers G2 Stack — additional technographic data — with its Buyer Intent packages. This enhancement surfaces prospects’ tech stacks so vendors can reach out with their solutions that complement a prospect’s existing tools and resources. For a limited time, G2 is offering G2 Stack for free with a new Buyer Intent package purchase for the entirety of the contract.
