Awareness on how to solve the challenges of prospects
Zeroing in on the real issue of the prospect and providing the appropriate solution will allow prospects to effectively convince the other important stakeholders in the organization that they are an issue to resolve and why they need your service/product. In order to do it, use whitepaper, eBooks, infographics, etc, to answer the type of queries that the prospect might be Googling, like “what is” or “how to”. Ensure to inform them by including shareable statistics that help in selling the products to the stakeholders.
Validation from third-party
When prospects are shown case studies, it helps them in understanding the true benefits of using your service and products. The examples can be either in video or written format, it is important to understand the industry of the prospect and what issues they face. Once that is understood, marketers can select relevant case studies to display.
Detailed product information
