Well, the co-founder of Eloqua, Steven Woods, has done a pretty good job in doing just that in his book, "Digital Body Language."
Jack Nargundkar
This skill is critical to evaluate their information needs and provide them with the appropriate content and offers to help them progress through the buying cycle.
W. S. Marshall
I highly recommend this book for all marketers who have to face a new Web world and all MBA students who have just learned the old model with little application.

I'm not sure if I like the term Digital Body Language, but Steve Woods' book I like very much. It clearly shows how the role of marketing in the complex sale has changed, and gives lots of detailed suggestions on how marketing teams can cope with this change, by using smart demand generation strategies.

This book is required reading for marketers who currently use a marketing automation system such as Eloqua (for a full list of vendors see my blog LeadSloth.com). Or for marketers who plan to use such a system. It provides useful guidelines to improve profiling, lead scoring, and lead nurturing. Also, it shows how to measure marketing ROI more objectively.

Steve Woods is CTO an co-founder of Eloqua, so the book is based on 9 years of practical demand generation experience. However, the book does not mention Eloqua, so you are spared any advertising and you get access to knowledge that is relevant regardless of the marketing software you use.

Digital Body Language is not an easy read, because it's chock-full of information that has never been put in a book before. Steve has added about two dozen case studies, which are brief but provide practical examples that make the book come more alive. All in all, I think this book will soon become a classic in the demand generation space.

Whether you are a salesperson or company, your prospects are changing. Finding and connecting with prospects is more difficult today than ever before. And once you do connect with a prospect, the chances are they know far more about the issues they want or need to address and the potential solutions to those issues than the prospects you've dealt with in the past.

It used to be salespeople were the dispensers of knowledge and solutions. Not too long ago most psopects needed salespeople to help them analyze their needs and to then propose viable solutions to those needs.

No longer.

Everyday more and more of our prospects are turning to the ever growing number of resources on the internet to research their problems and issues, their wants and needs. With the explosion of websites, artilce sites, blogs, forums, webinars, and other resources immediatley avaiable to anyone willing to take a few minutes to do a keyword search, salespeople are no longer the lynchpin of knowledge and solution.

Salespeople are increasingly engaging prospects at a later and later stage of the purchasing process--often so late in the process that their only task is to give a price since the prospect has already diagnosed the issue, researched the various solutions, determined the most appropriate solution for their situation, and now only need a potential product or service provider to quote a price.

This movement away from using salespeople early in their purchasing process creates a huge problem for companies and salespeople--how to recognize and capture a prospect early in their solution search.

Format: Hardcover
Knowing whether Digital Body Language is a book for you depends on YOUR experience in this field. The book seems to get confused with who the reading audience is and I'll explain it by your experience level so you can make up your mind if it's right for you. Here's a rough breakdown by your experience:

If you have little sales/marketing experience and are someone looking to better understand how to break up your messages based on where customers are in the buying process, this is a good book to help you understand this. This book loosely defines sales funnel and segmentation from a short tail perspective of understanding how to deliver your content differently to your customers depending on what you know about them. Unfortunately, it does not dive too deeply into HOW TO exactly accomplish this. Your knowledge will need to be supplemented elsewhere but this will be a good introduction of how to think about content delivery.

If you are an experienced marketer who understands his customers well and know how to break up your messages based on where they are in the sales cycle, Steven Woods does not deliver strong thought leadership in this field nor does he propose tools outside your existing toolset to assist further. This book focused on overall strategy and really harps on switching from old sales processes to inbound marketing to a point where it becomes redundant, particularly if you've already purchased this book. This ought to be apparent when Chapter 3 is "What is Digital Body Language?".

Steve put together the science behind the art of demand gen, marketing and database management as it pertains to marketing and sales. There are topics covered in this book that have not been touched by others. It's timely, accurate, provoking and a must-have handbook for any marketer out there that relies on technology to do their job.
