Content Marketing Coaching:
Build trust & close more deals faster.
80% of the B2B or B2C buyer's purchase decision is already made by the time a prospect contacts you. The right kind of Content Marketing allows you to educate your buyers and build trust, which leads to faster sales cycles and more closed deals.
# Of Pages Read
Did you know that, on average, if a lead reads 30 pages of content that is strategically aligned with their buyer's journey before meeting with you, they have an 80% likelihood of closing?
Blog Post Views
That's the result we achieved on a single blog post for one of our enterprise software company clients, drawing the attention of Microsoft, HP, Wipro, and other industry giants.
A different blog post directly influenced more than £685,000 in revenue (first interaction), bringing in more than 500 leads. And because the blog post is evergreen, it continues to contribute.
