Shot 4: General Tip of the Week

Using Facebook page promotion - going old school :-)
Just because something stopped working a while back, doesn’t mean it hasn’t changed since them.

Shot 5: State of Inbound Item of the Week

Feedback about what Buyers want from Sales: https://research.hubspot.com/reports/buyers-speak-out-how-sales-needs-to-evolve

3 Key Takeaways:

1: demos are part of the awareness stage

Interesting behaviour trend:
"Our data shows that a third of buyers want the opportunity to see a product in action very early on. They want a very tangible understanding of what they’re potentially buying, and they want it right away."

How you can respond:
"Most teams can’t spare valuable sales time on a early product demo before a buyer is properly vetted. A pre-recorded video demo that is clearly visible on a vendor’s website can satisfy the buyer’s content needs and has the potential to be an useful prospecting and qualifying tool for companies that have products that require demonstrations."

2: what buyers want versus what sales want to discuss on the first sales call

The Sales Disconnect
Action item: use this feedback about the sales disconnect to help change your approach to sales calls

3: Customer service generate the most trust, marketing content is next, ahead of sales, PR and advertising

Customer Service are more trusted
This is really useful feedback!
Action item: Incorporate the Customer Service team into your Buyer’s journey
