Customer Profiles

Emerging sellers in the Bible church market are advised to profile key sales targets before they invest in a specific sales strategy. A little industry knowledge can go a long way toward equipping your team with the tools required to sell to high value Bible church leads.

In this industry, it is especially important for sellers to adopt a customer-centered sales philosophy. In general, Bible churches are very skilled at spotting B2B companies that are out of touch with the industry and many will hold out for more knowledgeable suppliers, even if it means paying a slightly higher price.

Marketing, Promotions & PR

Ambitious B2B entrepreneurs are often tempted to buy their way into the market. Rather than taking the time to develop relationships with Bible church owners, these companies blanket the market with high-priced marketing content in hopes of scoring fast conversions from 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 improve the flow of prospects to your team, 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.

Strategies for Selling to Bible Churches

Although there are exceptions, Bible churches are always interested in products that help them provide a higher level of service for their clients and customers.

Cost is a constant concern, but if Bible churches believe a new product or line of products will significantly enhance their customers' experience, price takes a backseat to quality.

Businesses that sell to Bible churches need to also recognize the fact that Bible churches aren't necessarily the beneficiaries of their products, so strategies that focus on enhancing customer experiences are frequently well-received by buyers.
