Unleash the Power to Self Select

The one thing that is very consistent in many organizations is that marketing and sales are separate, divided and in some cases, have a significant amount of animosity between the two departments.  This typically comes from a lack of understanding and communication. So, if you are the head of marketing or sales for your company, one way to solve this problem is to engage sales team members in the process of creating content.

Supercharge your sales content with reviews from delighted clients.

Embrace the Review Obsessed Society

It’s true.  People love reviews.  Whether looking to buy a new mattress or evaluating new vendors, reviews are important and utilized now more than ever.  So, knowing this, it’s time to get out ahead of the competition and build review content. Try something like: “The Top Providers of _____ in the ______ Market”.  Here’s the key, do not include your company. You don’t need to. You will say more by not including yourself and if you do this correctly, you will drive them to your site, which is exactly what you want.

Show It, Don’t Just Say It

Talking is easy, but actually showing and educating a prospect is quite a different thing.  Remember, you are building TRUST and a great way to do that is by being the teacher in your industry.  Educate by becoming a student and thought leader of your industry first and then replicating what you learn into some killer content.
