Enterprise-sales is not what it used to be, and marketing is its biggest enabler
What if I told you that any B2B startup can extract smart signals from multiple online sources and social media channels, mix them with some other intelligence tools, add a few automations, and build a super effective business machine. A machine that works for you 24/7, sends you time-sensitive sales-related alerts, runs sales pitches on your behalf, and helps you develop relationships with the biggest enterprise accounts, and close deals so much faster?
What if I told you that marketing today isn’t at all what it used to be 10 years ago?
What if I told you that smart marketing acts as a multiplier of your sales force and saves you the need to lean on heavy SDR resources?
In the past few years, digital marketing has transformed to become a key sales channel, a critical generator of first impression and trust, and a game-changing layer in any meaningful business operation. So much so, that if you try to onboard internal sales in your startup ahead of optimizing your marketing for sales, you may find it impossible to succeed.
Yet, so many B2B startup founders and even marketers and sales executives stayed behind, not grasping this shift. Not understanding how to use new strategies and technological tools to drive new business, increase sales and build a revenue machine. COVID-19 simply amplified an already existing gap that keeps growing.
Israeli based startups are particularly susceptible to such know-how gaps. We may be the startup nation when it comes to tech and innovation, but we seem to be lagging behind when it comes to mastering the business aspects.
Today, closing enterprise-level deals is HEAVILY dependent on remote, online, and digital activities:
1. Constantly push messages in front of (and to the top of mind of) the RIGHT audience, in a strategic, segmented, personalized and automated manner.
2. Make the best online and digital impression and establish the required trust.
3. Develop BOTH personal & proactive remote business relationships with prospects in the targeted accounts, at scale, by using smart intelligence tools and automated scripts.
How is it done and who is in charge of what? Is all that the marketing role? sales? SDR?
The truth is that in agile, new-world B2B enterprise-sales oriented startups – It’s usually all done by a single stakeholder (or just a few), or an external agency. The traditional boundaries are not there anymore and the budget or resources are limited. But, it all starts with understanding the new-world, knowing how to close the loops, chasing ONLY after the business KPIs, and sticking to tactics and tools that are the fastest and carry a feasible price in order to drive business results home…
