Are there any B2B software companies out there using nurture streams and if so, would you be willing to share any workflow diagrams you have on the setup of your streams? We have a structure in place for our's, but I feel like there is a better way and would like to hear/see how others are doing it. Thanks so much!
Hey Amy Green, I think this is actually a pretty complex question that could really depend on how many different softwares you market, the pricepoint of the software, timeframe for purchase, and potential buyers of the software. Without some more background knowledge about what you're trying to accomplish, this is a very vague question that could be answered in multitudes of ways (unless that's what you're looking for )

Thank you Dory and Josh. Yes, it is very complicated. We market 4 main products for new logo customers all in the construction market.

As stated earlier,right now it is more solution based.
