I talked to Jim Burns of Avitage in this podcast about how to support B2B value selling sales teams with the right knowledge, communication support, and situation-ready content.
High-performing content is your First Product and Currency with which you earn attention, interest, engagement — this is the way you create value for buyers. Unfortunately, many executives aren’t aware of strategic imperative of high-performing content and the impact on their business. Since most content tends not to be sales or situation ready, it generally performs poorly, often negatively, which does not reflect well on the salesperson or the company brand.
Jim and I discussed:
How to assess the current state of your current sales content assets.
What Jim believes to be the underlying causes of why content doesn’t perform well.
The primary cases for using sales content:
- Knowledge, Shared Learning, Preparation support
- Communication Support
How an organization should go about producing content that is high-quality, high performing and sales-ready.
What Jim recommends in terms of deploying content, or making situation-ready content easier for salespeople to access and use?
And much more.
