Organizations do not have the time, focus, or specialized
knowledge required for todays marketing.
UNABLE TO INSTANTLY ENGAGE WITH BUYERS AT TIME OF INQUIRY
A person comes into the store or calls on the phone. You would like to capture their information right then and there including what they were interested in and their contact information and send them precisely the information they requested immediately in the form that they prefer.
YOUR CONTENT IS SPREAD IN TOO MANY PLACES AND TOO MANY FORMATS
You have multiple online and offline locations that your content and resources are siloed across. It might be Youtube, PDF’s, websites, printed materials, digital files, images, emails, phone scripts. You have no easy ability to use segments of that content and package it together intelligently to deliver it to individuals or segments of individuals in exactly the right form that meets their need.
YOU DON'T HAVE THE CUTTING EDGE CAPABILITIES OF LARGER CONSUMER FACING BUSINESSES
You would ideally like to implement more modern capabilities in your overall marketing like videos and texting to improve your customer conversion rate. But providing these capabilities to your audience is cumbersome and expensive (web services). Not offering customers additional modalities restricts their participation. In addition, your analytics are not strong enough to understand which specific customers showed what level of interest in which of your products.
RECRUITING QUALIFIED REVIEWS CONSISTENTLY IS DIFFICULT
You know that buyers more and more rely on reviews to identify trustworthy businesses. This is especially true for people making a first time purchase. Buyers are suspicious if there are no recent reviews. They look for authenticity and recency, two hard things to make happen.
DEEPENING THE EXPERIENCE WITHOUT MANUAL EFFORT
When a potential customer watches a video or reads a PDF or interacts in any way with your website or SMS texts or email or any other of your assets, you have no way to follow up with more information around that specific interest. You dream of having your buyers followed up with automatically (without you or any of your staff touching anything).
UNABLE TO KEEP A CUSTOMER ENGAGED WHEN THEY ARE NOT READY TO BUY JUST YET
You have people that are window-shopping either via a phone call or by coming into your premises. These people are not ready to buy. They are just individual inquiries for now. You lack any way to add additional value at the time of inquiry and an efficient way to follow up with them, specifically at the time when they are most likely to buy.
CAN'T EASILY CONNECT ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS/SERVICES TO EXISTING CUSTOMERS
You have multiple products and services. You worry that your customers are totally unaware of existing products and services that they will find valuable. These customers would need to search through your website to find out that you even offer these services further complicated by low traffic on your website.
DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO SEND A PROMOTION TO ALL MY RECENT INQUIRIES
You have an idea for a quick promotion. You want to target everyone who has recently expressed interest in a product. But understanding who these people are is difficult. It is further limited by your ability to only send an email and you really don’t have the email addresses for most of these people.
UNABLE TO UPDATE PROMOTIONS ON MY WEBSITE
Your website is nice but you can’t easily add special promotions or even offers with the ability to purchase right then and there without using your expensive and often unresponsive web master. You are frustrated with your inability to quickly construct and modify offers and promotions on your site.
CONVERTING BUYERS FROM PRINT AND OTHER SOURCES WHEN STAFF AREN'T PRESENT
You decide to do a promotion in either a newspaper, website, or some other form. You want a person to simply be able to enter in one word on their smartphone and then have an automated conversation with that person (no human interaction required on your part) that guides them to a successful purchase decision.
YOU LACK INSIGHTFUL AND ACTIONABLE DATA
You have many activities across your website, texts, and emails. You have no time to learn a deep analytics program like Google analytics yet analytics are important to you. You want to know which of your content pieces are working. You would contact a buyer if you knew they are looking at your text for the 4th time but you have no insights.
PROVIDING SPECIFIC INFORMATION IN PERSON
You have in-person marketing efforts but no easy way to enable intelligent one-to-one communications on the spot. You want to instantly get people information that specifically matches their inquiry but the best you have is pen, paper, and maybe a static brochure.
YOU LACK THE SOPHISTICATION TO CONNECT WITH BUYERS IN 3RD PARTY DISTRIBUTOR LOCATIONS
Your product is in another retail environment, like someone else's store (a manufacturer using a retail distribution outlet). Therefore, you actually never have the opportunity to meet the potential buyer. You leave brochures in the retail space but have no idea who picked them up, why they picked them up, or if they ever purchased your product.
YOUR BUYERS TELL YOU THEIR INTERESTS BUT YOU FAIL TO USE IT MEANINGFULLY
You collect information in person and digitally through forms but you don’t then incorporate those attributes in any meaningful or specific way when communicating with your potential customers. You’ve identified Individuals' interests but it’s sitting in your database rather than making your communications more one-to-one (which would increase your conversions).
YOU SIMPLY DON'T HAVE THE RESOURCES
You want to have many of the above capabilities but you lack resources (time, money, expertise). You feel frustrated that you have the same needs as bigger and stronger players in your market, but simply do not have the resources to do what they seem to be able to do.
