Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

How to Get Customers to Tell Their Stories (without bribery or torture tactics)

You've all experienced it...the struggle to get your customers to take part in your customer marketing and advocacy programs. They don’t want to do case studies or take reference calls because those feel like torture, with little in it for them. And they’re handcuffed by PR and legal policies that prohibit them from giving vendor endorsements and testimonials.

Great News!!

While SlapFive co-founder Jeff Ernst was the Forrester analyst covering B2B buyer behavior and customer engagement, his research surfaced surprising insights into what motivates customers to engage in your customer programs. He applied those insights while building Forrester Frontlines, their global customer voice & engagement program. They captured amazing stories from VP and C-level executives at Fortune 1000 companies that produced customer stories that one of our sales reps described as, “this is the best thing I’ve ever gotten from Marketing, here or anywhere else I’ve ever worked, because it does the selling for me.”

On this webcast, Jeff will walk you through the recipe for making customers clamor to share their voice.

You will learn:
* What REALLY motivates your customers to engage in your programs, and why what you’re doing today actually turns them off.
* The 8 key ingredients for the design of customer programs that get your customers to eagerly participate in them.
* How to give customers so much control over their activities and content that there’s no way they can say “No”.

  • Improve Buyer Enablement by Unraveling the B2B Buyers Journey Recorded: Jan 23 2020 42 mins
    Gaurav Harode, CEO and Founder of Enablix
    Each business -- with its buying committee made of multiple stakeholders - makes buying decisions following different processes moving at different rates.

    Now add that B2B buyers have access to unlimited online information sources and an ever increasing number of vendors to consider, marketers must provide buyers greater and greater value across the buying process. In addition, marketers must help buyers with the purchase but in a way that steers those buyers to their solution. Thus both marketing and sales must continually deliver value longer after the buyer becomes a customer.

    However, too many marketing and sales teams have a very simplistic and linear view of today's B2B buying process. It rarely yields results.

    Gaurav Harode worked his way through a complex B2B buying process during his time at Oracle. Today, as a founder of Enablix (https://www.enablix.com/), a sales enablement platform, he works with marketing and sales teams to help enable buyers and grow sales. Between Oracle and Enablix, he has had an opportunity to define several buyer journeys and operationalize the sales processes to map to those journeys.

    On this webcast, he shares buyer enablement best practices that he has learned from his failures and successes.

    You will learn:

    - Why a linear B2B buyer’s journey is setting you up for failure
    - A framework to codify today’s complex buyer’s journey
    - Why automation dilutes value to the buyer
    - How to help your sales team enable buyers across the buyer’s journey
