Team Associates

We also realized that a plan without execution connected to achievement was worthless. We, therefore,  created and staffed four practice areas at On Demand Advisors: marketing, sales, business development, and strategy.  Our team of over 50 professionals deliver the day-to-day programs and results that are required by our clients. Our goal is to augment and staff any area where you have gaps, mentor your team members with best practices for revenue growth, and collaborate with and provide mentorship.

FAQs

What is a “Sales Acceleration Website”?2020-05-27T15:48:08+00:00

Regardless of how someone hears about your company, their first destination is your website. In fact, 92% of B2B sales start on the internet. When someone visits your site, what action do you want them to take? What do they want from you? What first impressions do you make? Most company websites are electronic brochures that do not guide the visitor but provide content about the company and its products and services – from a seller’s perspective. 

The Buyer’s Journey begins with understanding how your buyers want to buy and the buying process. What information do they need to make a decision, and what sequence of events would lead from initial interest to purchase? Once this is understood, the next step is to convert your website into a self-service asset. When buyers complete the purchase on your website or a self-discovery site, you collapse the sales process and match qualified and educated buyers with your sales team. 

How do we engage with On Demand Advisors?2020-05-27T15:48:02+00:00

That starts with a simple conversation to understand what your challenges are today. Drop us an email at rjurkowski@ondemandadvisors.com, and let’s talk.

How do we reduce the length of our sales cycle?2020-05-27T15:48:14+00:00

First, you need a significant number of leads so that your sales team works with qualified leads. You need to create a demand generation engine and apply the revenue engineering methodology that we discussed earlier in this series. Today, you have a conversion rate of market qualified leads to sales opportunities, and a conversion rate of sales opportunities to close.  These conversion rates dictate a specific number and type of leads that you need to make your numbers every quarter.  The first step is to understand your conversion rates today, and the second step is to improve your conversation rates through better lead qualification or selecting better prospects that fit your “sweet spot.”

Second, if the “grey-haired lead” is in the marketing funnel, you need to determine how to convert market qualified leads (MQL) into sales qualified leads (SQL). We call this marketing or nurturing with a purpose. Your marketing and demand generation programs should be focused to help acquire leads, and graduate them into sales opportunities, or close them as sales. Many companies use demand generation programs to generate leads or prospects, but they do not have processes to graduate them into sales opportunities or closed deals.

Should my marketing spend be accountable and tracable to sales?2020-05-27T15:48:20+00:00

Yes. It is not unusual to hear a CEO lament the fact that the Marketing department has spent $1 million on “marketing stuff.”  Often it is difficult to determine which marketing programs are creating sales outcomes and which programs are underperforming – at what cost and tradeoffs?  We believe that there is one customer acquisition process that cuts across the Marketing, Sales, and Business Development functions in all companies.

How do you achieve this type of visibility at your company?  The first step is to map the buying process from customer awareness through lead qualification through the sales process. The second step is to implement the right end-to-end infrastructure from marketing automation to CRM. The final step is to create a set of key metrics dashboards so that you have visibility to the entire process and can quickly interrogate and understand the results.

How do we generate the volume or quantity of leads that we need?2020-05-27T15:48:29+00:00

Many companies rely on a few demand generation programs to generate their quantity of market qualified leads. These programs may include referrals, word of mouth, search marketing, periodic email campaigns participating in industry trade shows. When the recession began in 2008, many companies experienced a precipitous drop in demand. They did not have a plan or set of additional demand generation programs to replace lost demand or reach new audiences.

Our experience and research have taught us that most companies will require a mix of 5-10 demand generation programs to generate the consistent volume of market qualified leads needed to scale revenue. The key here is to choose the right set of programs appropriate for your target audience with valuable content for your buyer and frequent multi-touch cadence. A multi-touch cadence magnifies your brand presence and reinforces your key messages.

What do we do if our messages and offers are not resonating with our target audience?2020-05-27T15:48:33+00:00

If you are deploying frequent demand generation campaigns, but your campaigns are not converting into interested prospects or your offers are not resonating with your target audience, your challenge may be your message. It may be the right time to conduct a detailed and rigorous survey of your target audience stakeholders. Let them rank the importance of the strategic and tactical pains that you address. Let them rank the importance of your value propositions.

Recently we conducted a market survey for one of our clients, and we asked their target audience to rank over 20 value propositions. It turned out that the two lowest-ranked value propositions were the top messages that they were using to reach and connect with their target audience before the market surveys.

What do we do if we lack a comprehensive plan to create demand for our products and services?2020-05-27T15:48:38+00:00

There is no “silver bullet” answer to generate sales qualified leads. Based on our experience with hundreds of companies, you start by implementing a comprehensive approach to ensure that you exceed your revenue goals. We present this approach, what we call “The Revenue Acceleration Map,” through an interactive executive workshop that we conduct throughout North America.
