5 Tips for increasing sales using digital Content

FACT: Personalized digital sales content is the secret to winning more business.


The days of long pitch lunches and face-to-face meetings where you could work your sales magic are gone. In this new digital business ecosystem, a sales professional’s primary job is to provide the digital content, tools, and resources that buyers need to make an informed decision.

So where do you start?

Tip #1: Accept that the sales role has changed

The modern buying journey is increasingly driven by a self-directed digital approach, with the majority of buyers preferring not to interact with a sales rep as their primary source of information. Buyers have moved online and there’s no going back.

Given that sellers have less and less opportunity to influence customer decisions, your main job now is to guide and support buyers along their learning and discovery path by providing tailored informational content via various digital channels.

Tip #2: Understand the buyer's journey

In order to deliver content that resonates with buyers, you need to understand the complexities of the buyer’s journey and personalize your content to what matters to them at each stage.

  1.  Awareness

    Buyers are seeking knowledge. You should help them understand their problem, how industry challenges and trends impact their business, how other businesses are tackling the issue, and how your solution could help them solve their problem.

    Consider industry-related ebooks, educational webinars, or articles from industry publications
  2. Evaluation

    Buyers are assessing potential vendors. Engage prospects with relevant digital content and tools that position your company as the best solution to their problem.

    Think product guides, how-to videos, ROI calculator.

  3. Selection

    Buyers have compiled a short list. They need to choose a vendor and gain consensus from multiple stakeholders. Your aim is to demonstrate that your company is more than a vendor; you’re a partner. Build emotional buyer engagement through transparency and trust and provide real-life social proof of your solution’s effectiveness.

    Share customer testimonials, product reviews, and case studies.

Tip #3: Make buyers feel like partners

Modern buyers expect to be treated as partners, not targets. They want experiences that are:

  1. Connected: Work with buyers using a shared set of goals throughout the pre- and post-sale experience.
  2. Open: Think ‘more visibility’ and ‘easier access to relevant information.’ It’s all about trust and building authentic relationships via digital channels in lieu of in-person connection.

Collaborative: Help buyers understand their business challenges. Provide targeted content at each stage of the buyer’s journey to help them evaluate solutions.

Tip #4: Personalize for profit

The traditional sales pitch tends to focus on your solution, but the key to winning business is to put the primary focus on the buyer instead. Tailor your website, digital channels, and content streams to showcase a detailed understanding of the buyer, their industry, and their pain points.

Engage prospects with a personalized buyer experience by developing a strong understanding of:

  • Industry drivers
  • Business challenges
  • Market forces & trends
  • Project objectives & risks
  • Key operating metrics
  • Financial benchmarking

Tip #5: Simplify the buyer’s journey

Your aim as a sales professional is to create a simple and frictionless buyer experience. And what’s the best way to achieve this goal? Curate content, resources, and tools across each stage of the buyer’s journey to help prospects clear any hurdles in their path and make selecting your solution an easy choice.

One trick to simplifying the decision-making process for buyers—and delivering the right content at the right time—is to let technology do the heavy lifting. With a sales enablement platform, such as Highspot, you can create a repeatable revenue engine by engaging buyers with content that aligns with where they are in the buying journey, delivered via their preferred engagement channels. Plus, you’ll be notified when prospects open, download, or share content so you can see which content is resonating with buyers.
