Elevating the Customer Experiences:
Enhanced Visual Assets & Curated Content
In the dynamic landscape of business-to-business (B2B) sales, the traditional methods of pitching products and services have undergone a remarkable transformation. The shift towards enabled B2B selling has revolutionized the customer experience, placing enhanced visual assets and curated content at the forefront.
This evolution not only benefits the brand seller but also provides substantial value to the buyer, creating a win-win scenario for all stakeholders involved. Elastic Suite provides a platform to support digital transformation for brands and their customers, enabling product curation, collaboration and organization to deliver personalized digital customer experiences.
Creating a New Customer Experience:
Incorporating Enhanced Visual Assets
Gone are the days when B2B sales pitches were limited to text-heavy documents and dull presentations. Elastic Suite brings together the power of enhanced visual assets, utilizing engaging imagery, videos, infographics, and interactive content, in addition to product details and specs in one place. A buyer’s innate preference is to consume visual content first and, secondly, product information and specs. Such visual assets transcend language barriers, enabling buyers and sellers to communicate effectively to a global audience.
Curating Content for Customize Selling
An effective B2B sales enablement solution is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Elastic Suite recognizes the diversity of buyers’ needs and preferences and enables the seller to create tailored customer content accordingly. Customized selling involves curating content that addresses specific pain points, industry challenges, and desired outcomes for each potential customer. This approach builds a stronger connection between the brand and the buyer, showcasing a deep understanding of their unique requirements and personalizing the offering to their needs specifically.
Building Value for Brands & Manufacturers:
Sales & Marketing Collaboration
The Elastic Suite platform bridges the gap between sales and marketing teams. Collaborative efforts between these two crucial teams ensure that the content created is not only on-brand and visually appealing but to ultimately prepare and support sales reps to have high-value conversations with prospects.
“Organizations need to invest in technologies that provide real-time access to specific data, so reps can align themselves with what their prospects want and need – not what they already know.”
– Kurt Andersen, for Adobe
Accelerating the Sales Pipeline
The synergy between enhanced visual assets and curated content significantly accelerates the sales process. Buyers are more likely to move through the sales funnel quickly when presented with compelling visuals and personalized content that directly addresses their pain points.
Most buyers are unhappy with the information that sales rep provide and 75% of decision makers believe sales reps are underprepared for meetings.
Brands that invest in enabling their sellers with Elastic Suite to create curated content can not only improve time-to-close but also increase the value of each individual sale.
Competitive Market Position
In a competitive B2B landscape, differentiation is key. Elastic Suite’s sales enablement features provide a unique opportunity for brands and manufacturers to stand out by offering a visually immersive and tailored experience for their prospective customers. This approach not only attracts potential buyers but also positions the brand as innovative and customer-centric, setting it apart from competitors relying on outdated sales methods.
Brands that don’t lead the way in customer experience will be left behind and will undoubtedly lose out on revenue opportunities.
Time & Efficiency Gains
One of the standout benefits for sellers is the time-saving aspect of enabled B2B selling with Elastic Suite. The availability of expertly curated materials means that sellers don’t have to start from scratch for every pitch, or default to sending the same standard one-pagers or catalogs.
Instead, they can utilize a library of engaging content and prepared specs sheets, allowing them to focus on personalizing the packages rather than reinventing the wheel for every interaction. This efficiency not only improves the sales close rate, but also enhances the overall buying experience for customers.
Assets for Marketers
From the marketing perspective, Elastic Suite streamlines the content creation process. With a focus on building high-quality visual assets and curated content, marketers can invest their efforts upfront to develop assets that have a longer shelf life. This reduces the need for constant content generation and empowers marketers to allocate their time to other strategic initiatives.
56% of Enterprise CMOs are dedicating budgets in 2024 to enhanced customer experience.
Value for the Buyer & Customer:
Informed Decision Making
For buyers, Elastic Suite’s enabled B2B selling platform is a game-changer in terms of making informed decisions. Visual assets and curated content empower buyers with comprehensive information about products, packages, and solutions. Instead of sifting through lengthy workbooks or deciphering complex spec sheets, buyers can engage with content that presents information in a clear, concise, and visually appealing manner. This transparency fosters trust and confidence in the brand.
Visual Process Driven by Asset-Rich Marketing Materials
The adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” holds true in B2B selling as well. Asset-rich marketing materials provide buyers with a visual roadmap of what the brand offers. Whether it’s a demonstration of a product’s functionality, a video showcasing the benefits of a cornerstone style or an infographic highlighting compatibility between products, these visuals simplify the decision-making process. Buyers can grasp the essence of offerings quickly, aiding them in evaluating how well the product aligns with their needs.
