Selling Tech to SMBs

Get key insights on how best to sell to SMBs.

SMBs are feeling pretty optimistic – and that translates into plans to buy technology. Whether it is to improve data security or upgrade dated equipment, SMBs have significant tech investment plans, especially for PCs, printers and smartphones.

To find out how you can take advantage of this opportunity, we recently surveyed over 300 U.S. SMB principals. The findings are instructive; there are some great learnings on how SMBs learn about, research and make tech purchase decisions; their purchase intent and timing; preferred purchase channel; perceptions and trust of leading tech brands; and how tech vendors can improve the sales process.
