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.)

Creating memorable, money-making content for beginners
Level: Intermediate Updated: Jul 29, 2021
"I know I need to create memorable content. But even when I’m happy with something I create, the process to get to that point often, well, sucks. It’s painful and takes too much time. What do I need to know to make creating memorable, money-making content not suck so much?"

Does this sound familiar? If so, you need to know two things. First, you are not alone. And second, are not the problem, even though it feels like it. The whole content marketing industrial complex has spent years beating the “you absolutely must create content” drum without ever bothering to teach the writing formulas, techniques and surprisingly easy (and repeatable) processes it takes to actually create content.

Instead of acknowledging this massive gap exists, however, it’s assumed that we all learned what we needed to know in school about crafting persuasive, engaging, powerful content our audiences will adore. Of course, that’s not true, but many of you don’t realize it.

So, how do we overcome this gap in knowledge and understanding? How do we make this unrelenting pain and angst around content creation go away, no matter our background, native skill sets or experience?

Well, if those are the questions you’ve got, you’ve come to the right place.

By the end of this lesson, you will:

  • Unlock the super simple processes and tools you need to produce the highest quality content possible every single time. 
  • Learn how to make sure that when you’re answering the questions of your ideal buyers through your content, you’re doing so the right way, so your content is guaranteed to be a deal-closer.
  • Understand how to craft insanely memorable blog introductions that hook your audience and make them hungry to learn more from you.
  • Know precisely how to craft conclusions that excite your ideal buyers and make them ready to take immediate action. 
  • You’ll also learn why adding personality into your content is mission-critical to your success as a content creator today, as well as the dos and don'ts of adding personality to content.
  • And finally, the best tools for bringing focus, serenity, and a little visual razzle-dazzle to everything you publish.
