People don’t buy things, they buy the expected results of the things we sell. For example: no one wants to buy a coaching program, copywriting, computer, etc. What people want to buy is the ability to make better decisions, attract sales-ready leads and email loved ones or surf the web. The things we offer are meaningless until they do something valued by the buyer.
Attracting sales-ready leads and closing sales opportunities isn’t about the list of benefits we claim via our products or services. It’s about the specific results we deliver that are valued enough to be purchased. It’s more about the situational experience and success we can demonstrate than the stated benefits we claim.
Ideally presented, success stories tell the exacting story of a specific customer challenge or opportunity your product or service fixed or enabled. Success stories strike at the key buying criteria of all prospective customers: What can you do for me?

Supply Chain Company Gains New Software Sales Leads
A US-based supply chain solutions company was preparing to launch a new software product and was in dire need of business sales leads. However, their internal sales team was not large enough to handle the time-consuming tasks of finding and qualifying potential customers. Despite the steady success they get from their inbound marketing efforts, they weren’t generating enough new business leads to feed the internal sales team. The company decided that it’s time to incorporate outbound prospecting into the marketing mix.
Responding to the quickly-approaching launch deadline, the company formed a team of outbound SDRs, trained and educated them on the technology, product benefits and industry applications necessary to engage prospects. They also made sure that they cover outside business hours by assigning 2 shifts of teams which allowed them to work across time zones, conduct appropriate research, and communicate with target companies (within US and outside US) and relevant contacts.
The outbound lead generation strategy was a success. The company was able to increase the volume of leads that are handed off to sales which translated into more sales.
Retailer Financing Solutions Provider Grows Sales Pipeline
A UK-based financing solutions firm decided that they need to step up their lead generation. They were looking for a way of generating quality and qualified leads that could be passed over to their sales team for demos of their service.
After researching the market, they chose a 3rd party agency to provide their lead generation and build a bespoke database. The agency specializes in building sales pipelines through booked appointments.
The lead generation company built a sales database based on key criteria given to them by the financing firm. Not only did the contacts need to be in the right industry, be the right size etc., they also needed to be users of Magento, the platform that the financing firm integrates with, and have an online shop.
The financing firm invested in the integrated email and telemarketing service from the lead gen agency. Content was created for email campaigns specifically around Magento users and sent out on behalf of the client. This was combined with telemarketing that resulted in numerous demos being booked for their sales team and providing the new team members with visibility of both short term and long term pipeline to follow up.
Healthcare Firm Drives Online Leads
A company that provides healthcare services across the U.S. was looking to build more website traffic and generate quality leads. The company understood that even with something as cecsonal as healthcare, people are going online first to find a care provider who understands their needs.
The marketing team created a custom content marketing strategy for the company’s target audience that acts as a guide, bringing patients the answers they’re looking for online to the providers who can give them the care they need. And through this approach, they’re helping the brand reach that goal – one diagnostic test and appointment request at a time.
They saw that the news content they created for the website was generating 170 percent more conversions quarter over quarter.
And while the net number of conversions contributes to the sales pipeline is lower than the website as a whole (news readers account for 10 percent of all traffic on the website, the conversion rate is actually 3 times higher). Visitors who come to the site and read the news content are 3x more likely to get in touch with the company and become a customer.
The articles attracted readers with relevant information, and the site promised to help them determine what kind of care they need. This one-two punch gives readers an easy way to satisfy their curiosity and also provides a next step that visitors can easily take.
