Content-Marketing---Image

Content marketing is extremely relevant for B2B companies as they typically have to educate customers about their products or services before they will engage with the company. It is also used for brand awareness as part of your overall market efforts.

Buyers have changed their behaviour and no longer rely on salespeople to inform them of product information and performance. The rise of internet use to source relevant information to educate themselves as increased the demand for quality content marketing. A marketing practice that is about inbound activity to support the buyer’s demand for knowledge. Content Marketing also plays a major role in website optimisation; the process of improving your website’s ranking and visibility on search engines.

Content marketing must add value to the prospective buyer. It must:

Inform – Buyers want to be informed when they download content and the goal is to have them share that content and take action. Informing buyers requires an understanding of what level of knowledge they potentially have and where they are looking to advance.

Relevant – Buyers have different requirements depending on their responsibilities within their roles in a company. We segment buyers into personas to serve the most relevant information to their role responsibilities. What knowledge do they need and how will it enhance their role and the business.

Thought Leadership – buyers are seeking people who are informed and leaders in their field. Companies that understand the market, its trends, and how to add value as a supplier. They gain confidence where companies demonstrate they are innovative, have deep domain knowledge, and understand how their products or services can add value above their competitors. Thought leaders ignite more conversations with stakeholders than others.

Content marketing requires quality assets that convey those messages to prospective buyers. We work closely with you in the content marketing effort to ensure the right messages are conveyed.

Is Your Sales Structure Aligned Correctly?

The impact of a misaligned sales organisation can be challenging through to catastrophic for company’s revenue achievement. To illustrate this, consider a sales force consisting of twenty-five sales people with an average revenue target of $2 million each. If 60% of the sales force meet their revenue target while the remaining 40% perform at only 90% of budget, the resulting revenue shortfall for the business is $2 million per annum that can fall directly to the bottom line profit!

As CEO, you have a critical role in ensuring sales organisation effectiveness and the final responsibility for delivering top line earning growth, which in turn drives the share price that is so integral to many executive packages today.
