If I’m a buyer doing my own research, I want firsthand experience with your product before I buy it. Remember, I’m spending a lot of money, and budgets are tight.
You can tell me what you do…but it’s MUCH more effective if you show me. Walk me through it, or show me a video that speaks to my use case so that I know that your product will work for me.
I want to know what others think of your product, and I’ll probably trust them before I trust some of your own claims (unless you can back them up).
Free trials. Easy-to-navigate demos. Reviews and case studies that prove that others have had a great experience with your product. Incorporate these into your marketing program, and you’ll find that the customers who do connect with sales are closer to a decision!
