We are building monthly webinars, sometimes even bi-weekly, that we later on re-purpose into podcasts and blog posts, so you can give munition to your sales people.

Type of content to create that works with account based selling:

  • Use cases - showcase with insights what you did for other organizations (here is one of our examples)
  • Case Studies - Showcase results and concrete value proposition. (example here)
  • Run webinars or podcasts showcasing your expertise (here is what we do).
