We’re Thought Horizon
We increase B2B revenues using social media
Like Einstein’s Event Horizon, Thought Horizon was born in the nexus of two powerful forces. In our case it was Sales and Marketing.
Our CEO Sander Biehn founded Thought Horizon. During his career at a Fortune 20 company, he realized that neither the art of sales nor B2B digital marketing had changed much in the preceding 20 years.
Meanwhile, social media channels were exploding with business buyers seeking thought leadership concerning the problems they needed to solve.
Despite the proliferation of software point-solutions for social media, no one seemed to be addressing the question of bringing buyer and seller together in conversation online.
Our founder discovered that by creating and marketing highly specific, meaningful content to individual buyer groups, he could predict and drive new sales.
The key was to create real conversations, not mechanized ones.
Today, Thought Horizon provides our clients a process to create real conversations with their customers.
We serve Fortune 10 to Fortune 500 and many other smaller firms. Companies are benefited from our unique approach of creating an online community where prospects feel most comfortable.
Our services and processes ‘bolt-on’ to existing point-solutions, CRM and inbound marketing tools to fine tune the sales and marketing approach to sophisticated business buyers and executives.
