The revenue team approach to sales enablement content
Level: Intermediate Updated: Jul 2, 2021
No matter how much we publish great traffic-driving, lead-generating content, many of us still have sales teams telling us, “You’re still not publishing what we need.” or “Yeah, only maybe 1% of our content helps me close any deals.” In fact, B2B sales teams report that only 27% of the leads passed to them from marketing are even remotely qualified.

The solution? Sales enablement content. 

But what is sales enablement content? How is it different from what you're already creating? And how do you go about creating a sustainable, scalable sales enablement content strategy that doesn't make you want to rip your hair out and makes you look like a total money-making hero at your company?

Well, you're in good hands with Liz Moorehead, IMPACT's editor-in-chief. Because, by the end of this course, you'll know:

  • What sales enablement content is (and isn't)
  • What a revenue team is and how the revenue team model is the key to your success
  • How to run powerful content brainstorms with your sales team
  • How to leverage Liz's custom-built revenue content brainstorm tool
  • How to report on the ROI of your content, so no one ever questions your value

Creating pillar content your buyers and search engines will love
Level: Intermediate Updated: Jul 27, 2021
SEO isn't dead. The way search engines map our content today is simply very different (and much more human) than it was when we all first started creating content marketing strategies to drive traffic, leads, and sales for our companies. That's why the way we architect our content strategies must shift toward a topic cluster and pillar page model, an approach that has proven, measurable benefits:

  1. Your website will be much more organized, with a clear structure
  2. You'll be able to spot content priorities, opportunities, and gaps with ease
  3. Search engines like Google will be able to map your content more efficiently
  4. As a result, your search rankings go up due to better visibility

But what is the topic cluster and pillar content model? How does it work and why? What do great pillar pages look like across different industries? How do you select your own topic cluster and pillar content topics? How do you develop an out-of-this-world, revenue-generating strategy for a pillar page? And how do you track the success of your topic clusters and pillar pages?

You'll find the answers to the questions (and much more) in this IMPACT+ Pro course. (This course is ideally suited for content managers and digital marketers who are tasked with developing and executing robust content strategies that drive results for their company.)

HubSpotter's guide to cleaning up a messy HubSpot portal
Level: Intermediate Updated: Jul 28, 2021
HubSpot is one of the most powerful marketing, sales, and service automation platforms on the market today. And, if you're the owner of your company's HubSpot portal (no matter your role), you know its potential. You also likely know that, without regular maintenance, proper organization, and structure from the outset, your HubSpot portal can quickly devolve into a mess that does more harm than good.

"Every day I log into HubSpot, I have no idea what's going on in there and I don't know how to find anything. It's making it impossible to leverage HubSpot for contact segmentation, marketing and sales automation, and database management. On top of that, it's so disorganized, I'm not sure I can trust the reporting and analytics."

If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. 

In this course you'll learn:

  • The most common reasons why chaotic, messy HubSpot portals happen to good, well-meaning HubSpotter's
  • The step-by-step process you need to follow to clean out your old, unwanted contacts and how to clean up our data
  • Long-term strategies to keep your HubSpot portal data pristine, clean, and always reliable and up-to-date

Inbounder’s Guide to Email Marketing
Level: Beginner Updated: Jul 20, 2021
You might be surprised by this fact, but email marketing has been around since before the introduction of the internet. Yeah, in fact, the very first marketing email was sent in 1978 by none other than Gary “The Father of Spam” Thuerk, Marketing Manager of Digital Equipment Corp. Gary used email via Arpanet (basically the forerunner to the internet) to promote their new DEC machines to 400 recipients. The email blast resulted in $13 million in sales. And email marketing has been a critical tool in every marketer’s tool bag ever since.

But just like with any medium of marketing, there will be marketers who exploit it and abuse it. Those who care more about open rates and click-through rates than they do about the actual people receiving their emails. And when they do this, they make the rest of us look bad.

Ultimately, the purpose of this course is to teach you how to use email marketing appropriately and responsibly so that you’re only sending emails to people who want your emails, who sign up to receive them. 

This course is a great fit for beginners just getting started and intermediate marketers tired of sending emails that don’t get opened, don’t get clicked on, or get recipients to unsubscribe or mark them as spam.

Here you’ll learn the inbound approach to email marketing. We’ll cover what email marketing is, how to keep it inboundy, benefits of email marketing, how to grow your email contact database, and the different types of emails you can send to recipients (that they actually want to open).

By the end of this course, you’ll be an inbound email marketing padawan. Not quite a Jedi master (that’s for a later course), but well on your way to saving the universe from awful emails nobody ever wants to open or read.
