    How to Supercharge Sales by Building An Ideal Client Profile (ScaledUp Ep. 1)
    Lloyd Yip, The Startup Sales Expert Recorded: Mar 5 2019 36 mins
    An Ideal Client Profile (ICP) is a detailed description of the clients who would benefit most from your product/service. These clients are more likely to buy in to your vision, advocate for you, and ultimately stay a long term profitable client.

    Knowing your ICP means it’ll be easier to bring in more high value business that STAYS and ADVOCATES for you. As well, because you truly understand your market and their pain points, it is easier for you to improve the product/service in a way which keeps your clients happy.

    On the flipside, not knowing your ICP would mean:

    -It’s more difficult to find clients who want to buy
    -It’s harder to retain clients long-term
    -You’re more likely to bring on poor-fit clients who drain your resources
    -It’s confusing as to which marketing channels to use
    -It’s more challenging to improve the product/service to be in line with your clientele

    You will learn:

    1.How to analyze your existing client base to understand which clients fit your ICP
    2.How to also uncover who are the clients who are BAD fits, so you can avoid them
    3.How you can maximize your sales and marketing efficiency once you have a fully built ICP
    4.How to ultimately leverage your ICP to improve sales and revenue
    5.BONUS: How to discover your ICP even if you have very few clients to look back at

    Due to the expanding involvement of multiple people (and functions) in the decision process, sales cycles are getting longer and the entire process is becoming more complex.

Most important, we will give you the details of six proven strategies to shorten the sales cycle:

    1. Factor in the decision process.
    2. Stop excessive and unnecessary reorganizations.
    3. Sell solutions that impact business.
    4. Manage internal expectations.
    5. Don’t overcomplicate it.

    A clear, compelling and differentiated brand is a critical factor in the success of every market leader (company or individual). The right branding and positioning strategy can propel your growth and provide significant competitive advantage and the wrong branding strategy can make it more difficult to achieve revenue goals.

Hear examples of companies that have been branding winners and losers (and the differences).

    We’ll cover the scenarios where you need a major brand overhaul and those where a branding tune-up is sufficient. You will understand why your brand promise is not just a clever slogan that your marketing department dreams up, but rather the foundation upon which your business is built. Last, but certainly not least, we will discuss how your branding and positioning can be used as a key asset to achieve profitable revenue and grow the value of your company.

    You will learn:
    1.Which branding elements contribute to greater revenue.

A pitch should be a distillation of a strong message strategy that is well developed and thought out. The best elevator pitches and tag lines come from a strong foundation – ensuring that message is clear, consistent and buyer

    How was your last value proposition developed? A brainstorming session? Individual effort? Copying other value props? Does Sales create their own value prop, even though Marketing already has one?
