Key Takeaways - Digital Sales Strategy: Overcoming the Barriers to Growth

When it comes to digital sales strategy, the common barriers to growth are as follows:

  1. A solid website is the foundation of a digital sales strategy, but many firms launch sites that do not represent their company well and are not easily found by potential customers. A company's website should be constructed on one of the top platforms (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.) and meet all development best practices. The website should also be SEO optimized and updated on a regular basis. Lastly, the website should contain reasons to believe (RTB) in the company's brand. Prior to any website development, the company leadership should develop a solid brand that sets it apart from the competition.
  2. The second barrier to growth is not developing great content for the website on an ongoing basis. To be successful, companies must continue to create great content that will attract customers.
  3. The third barrier is not adopting a growth mindset. Companies treat their digital strategy as a cost rather than as an investment in their sales growth. Creating great content (websites, podcasts, videos, articles, social media, etc.) costs money, but not creating that content will result in lost opportunities.
  4. The last barrier to growth is becoming overwhelmed by the omnichannel content strategies. Omnichannel refers to cross-channel content strategy that organizations use to improve their user experience and drive better relationships with their audience. Many companies are intimidated by the omnichannel options and the associated investment. One strategy to avoid the overwhelm and investment is to employ very targeted campaigns that reach your prospective customers where they are. In other words, if your customers attend specific conferences and or websites, focus your marketing investment there rather than spreading your marketing investment across all the marketing channels.
