Coronavirus has made an impact on businesses in a variety of ways. From the way we communicate and sell to customers to the way we interact with employees, all businesses have had to evaluate, adapt, and change.

Business 2 Community reached out to their network of B2B sales reps, managers, business owners and business development employees to find out what impact the Coronavirus, and lockdown, was having on:

  • Their sales opportunities
  • Their job prospects
  • Their outlook for the year
  • How they engage with customers

A few of the big takeaway statistics were:

  • 73.9% of B2B sales roles surveyed said that their sales opportunities had decreased since the Coronavirus outbreak – however, 26.1% reported a jump in sales opportunities.
  • 50% of respondents said customers postponing purchasing decisions was the biggest struggle, followed by not being able to meet face to face with customers at 25%.
  • 37.5% of B2B salespeople surveyed said they weren’t confident about their sales job – however when asked what their biggest fear overall about the Coronavirus and their industry, not one person cited losing their job as the main concern.

Take a look at this infographic to learn more about their findings:
