Great post @alice_def. I particular like the "to-go reference", Front's challenges and the related links you shared.
On the trial and error part: when's a good time span to determine whether one channel work for you or not?
As a rule of thumb: I'd say minimum is 1 month. Generally, you want enough time to cut your teeth on that channel and figure out how that channel works at a basic level, then give yourself enough time to try to optimize it.
Thank you Ryan.
Great post by @alice_def Let me know how the referral program you built works out!
sure will :)
What customer acquisition channel would you suggest then for a company with customers who have a RFP process and long sales cycle? And great article!
I've run marketing at a couple start ups where we had long complex sales cycles and did RFP responses. Consistently, the things that worked best involved building content that connected with prospects as early as possible in their process. My best pieces of content were a guide to creating a good RFP for our category of solution and a super-detailed solution evaluation guide. Anyone downloading those pieces was in the pre-RFP stage and that gave my reps a chance to engage with prospects before my competitors did and shape the RFP itself in our favour (or if we got really lucky, we could bypass the RFP altogether).
This is an amazing idea @aprildunford !! Something I can start to work on as we go through our RFP for the first time this year. Thanks for sharing !
That's actually a though one. I used to work in a company that had this same kind of client but we had a really well known brand that made it easier for us to get to the RFP process and then through it.
Have you already tried a few different channels and are able to see what's working for you or not? Also, do you know what your competition is doing and that's working?
Our competition are using basic sales tactics, which is what we've started doing because our lack of resources and personnel limit us. But replicating our competition will only get us so far - we're looking for something different as our product changes the industry.
It's great article, most of the people try to run their business without knowing the marketing strategies, like as with out knowing customer acquisition channels which is the most important, how to target the people using paid or organic....
Thanks Nitin, glad you liked it!
