Want to accelerate the process of turning leads into customers? Consider using a strategically timed story, suggests Marketo in the following infographic.
To prepare your narrative, be sure to use a story arc that considers the early, mid, and late stages of the buying process.
“New leads and customers are all at different stages of the buying process, so tailor your messages and materials to best suit their needs,” suggests Marketo.
Next, decide what type of story to tell and to whom.
Choose from the red-carpet track (treating leads like celebrities), sales-nado track (picking up stagnant prospects), detective track (building systems that can follow a lead’s trail), and the sleeping beauty track (sending targeted content to sleeping contents).
