Using your Website as a Sales Platform

Selling online should be no different than selling in person. Once a customer is connected with a sales consultant, it becomes about engaging in a conversation around the product in question. In person, the two parties see each other and observe facial expressions and body language. Often in these situations the customer and the seller develop a trusting relationship (especially when the seller provides guidance/expertise). On the web, the communication experience between a customer and sales consultant can not only come close to an in-person sale but with video, real-time analytic and custom toolsets, it can actually exceed the traditional experience.

Lets break down the online sales process into 5 steps:

Sales Productivity

I firmly believe the market today is unlike any we've seen in a long time, if ever. It's a zero-sum market in which many niches are saturated and success involves taking something away from a competitor -- and sometimes the competitor is yourself. This kind of market resembles retail, where most niches are also filled and securing a place for your product or brand may mean displacing another on the store shelf.
We are at it again -- and why not? It's the start of another year, and people are doing predictable things like having kickoffs of all sorts of things. I just launched a new website and several new initiatives in research and thought leadership, so I am no exception.

Well if this describes you, you should know that your situation can be fixed if you’re willing to work to change it.

What is the Best Strategy for Ecommerce Copywriting?

It might not seem like much, but ecommerce copywriting is an important strategy that helps you rank high in search engines. Quality ecommerce copywriting can actually have a higher rate of converting traffic into sales.

Writing a unique copy for each product can actually make a huge difference. Even though the manufacturer’s copy contains all the accurate information regarding the products, it still is better to write one of your own. The only problem with the manufacturer’s copy is that every other merchant selling that product will have the same text and the search engine will not rank every website with the same content. Also, at times it is too technical for a buyer to understand.

This Tea Company Steeps Its Business in Social Media

Selling tea over the internet isn't the simplest proposition. There's no way for online consumers to smell or taste a delicate chocolate chai or a bold pi lo chun green before they place an order. "A fair amount of guesswork is involved," admits Ilya Kreymerman, chief technology officer at Adagio Teas.
But the folks at the 13-year-old company, which operates online and from three stores in the Chicago area, don't like to leave their internet customers guessing. Instead, Adagio's patrons are encouraged to offer recommendations through Facebook, Twitter and Google+. And the conversation doesn't end there. Adagio is on the leading edge of a movement toward extracting actionable data from the social media stream, cultivating insights about products and trends from its robust customer community.

What is the Meaning and Value of “Content” in Selling?

Expand Your Definition of Content to Create Value for Your Prospect

There is a lot of talk about content in marketing and sales these days. A company no longer has just brochures, datasheets or a company website, it has a pool of content about the products and services it markets. The company makes strategic and tactical decisions about how to most effectively communicate that content to potential customers, whether by blog, tweet, email, brochure, slide deck, webinar, datasheet, phone call or other means.

How to Keep Your Email Campaign Out of Your Prospect's Spam Folder

Email marketing, or e-marketing, is a great way to reach prospects. You can send out emails without having all the costs associated with regular direct mail – costs like printing, envelope-stuffing and postage. The major drawback to e-marketing is that it's hard to be sure that your email even reaches the recipient. With direct mail your prospect will at least glance at the mailing before tossing it. With e-marketing, the messages can end up snagged by an automated spam filter and never make it to the prospect's inbox. It pays to do a little extra work and make your emails less likely to be flagged as spam.
