Marketing, Promotions & PR

Young B2B companies are often tempted to buy their way into the market. Rather than taking the time to develop relationships with educational administration business owners, these companies blanket the market with high-priced marketing content in hopes of making rapid headway with buyers.

Marketing is useful and necessary. But new businesses should channel their energy toward initiatives that support their value proposition. Although lead lists obtained from third-party vendors like Experian can dramatically increase the quality of your prospects, the effectiveness of your marketing efforts is limited to your team's ability to connect marketing, promotional and PR messaging with your company's unique product traits.

Review Mechanisms

It's also important to implement regular review mechanisms to evaluate the effectiveness of both your sales team and your strategy. Internal review processes should be based on quantifiable data as well as direct input from educational administration businesses themselves.

If necessary, modify your hiring and/or strategy to accommodate changes in the marketplace.

Cost Analysis of Your Selling Tactics

Every part of your sales strategy should be targeted for cost analysis. Business owners sometimes overlook cost considerations and instead, choose to invest in sales strategies that fall short of ROI expectations.

For example, even though it might seem logical to increase the size of your sales force to expand your base of educational administration business customers, the additional labor overhead may make hiring cost prohibitive -- or at least unattractive compared to other less costly strategies.
