Start Using iBooks to Power Up Sales and Improve Brand Consistency

Most salespeople rely on a variety of tools of the trade, from walking a prospect through a PowerPoint presentation to handing out the rep’s own version of a tailored leave behind. In most cases, these presentations are informative but far from engaging.

While “old school” methods of selling have their merits, they also have their disadvantages. The iBook’s engaging format is among the most powerful selling tools available today, for three reasons:

  1. iBooks are feature-rich and therefore engage the prospect.
  2. iBooks can be easily updated and tailored to present specific content.
  3. iBooks are downloaded content, not Wi-Fi, cellular, or network dependent.

Let’s take an in-depth look at these advantages. As compared to PowerPoint or a brochure/catalog, iBooks have media-rich features that include rotatable 3D objects, videos, interactive images, audio files, surveys and pop-ups that provide great detail in an appealing format. Unlike flat selling tools, iBooks engage a prospect with your product’s features and benefits and “shows” them your differentiation.

These rich features can be accessed by your sales rep for a face-to-face presentation of your product’s value and benefits. Prospects can also download iBooks from a link on your company’s website, or via email, to access the information on their own time.

A second important plus for iBooks is the content is downloaded prior to your sales meeting and doesn’t require Internet access. This can be a significant benefit, especially in hospitals and other highly secure work environments where Internet access is restricted, or cellular reception is weak.

Once the iBook is downloaded onto an iPad, the content can be used for one-on-one presentations or connected to a larger monitor to present to a group. Sales reps may choose to lead the conversation swiping through the presentation, or let the prospect take the wheel to explore features and benefits that are of most interest to them.

iBook technology allows marketing and sales teams to develop linear presentations of information, or provide instantly accessible content to address specific customer questions. It enables the presentation of top-line value and corporate capabilities, and the ability to drill down to present more granular, technical information that specific audiences may find valuable – all within a familiar and engaging interface.

"SFA's strategy was spot on. By creating the umbrella slogan, "Ultrasound clearly defined” we were able to truly segment our product offerings by application and specialty, allowing our sales teams to become far more relevant to each customer's needs."

#HappyFriday! We are having a little bit of fun here at SFA taking the @adobe Creative Types Test. According to Adobe Create Magazine the test's goal is to shine a light on the inner workings of different creative personalities types in a way that might help us better understand ourselves, our creative process, and our potential. Here are our results! What’s your creative type? The Thinker: Driven by an insatiable intellectual curiosity, the THINKER makes the quest for knowledge and truth a lifelong pursuit. With all those big questions and abstract thinking, you’ve got some serious electrical activity going on in that brain of yours! The Visionary: You live in a world of infinite possibilities, preferring to see things not as they are but as they could be. The ability to see the spark of potential in everything and everyone, and to inspire others to see it, too. You’re able to guide people toward an invisible horizon with a rare generosity of spirit and strength of conviction. The Dreamer: The world is a place of beauty and magic in the eyes of a DREAMER. Where others see facts and figures, you see symbols, metaphors, and hidden meanings. Your greatest gift is your depth of sensitivity and empathy, which allows you to give voice to universal human emotions in a way that touches people on a profound level. The Innovator: The INNOVATOR sees everything through the lens of possibilities and progress, problems and solutions. Change may be scary for most people, but for you, it’s fuel for your creative fire. A pioneer and trailblazer, you’re here on this planet to light the way into the future. The Maker: Driven, focused, and dedicated to the creative process, the MAKER has mastered the art of manifesting ideas and visions in three-dimensional form. Society greatly benefits from the work of MAKER types, who develop the systems, structures, tools, and innovations that the rest of us rely on. . . . #workhardplayhard #fridayfun #creativeminds #mycreativetype #agencylife #marketing #capabilities #analytics #googleanalytics #marketinganalytics #marketingdigital #marketingagency #marketingtips #marketingonline  #marketingplan #marketingsocial

Promotional marketing is a business marketing strategy designed to stimulate a customer to take action towards a buying decision. No one is going to buy a product or service they haven't heard of, nor will they buy it from you if they don't know what your company offers. This is why a great promotion strategy is vital if you want to grow your business. Some companies use more than one method, while others may use different methods for different marketing purposes. Regardless of your company's product or service, a strong set of promotional strategies can help position your company in a favorable light, while opening the doors for future communication.
