Creating new content takes an incredible amount of time and resources for your internal teams. Maybe you’re even paying an agency a good percentage of your budget to do it for you. Whilst content, from blogs to eBooks, and videos to white papers, does have a lot of value, that value comes at a cost.
This isn’t the only issue with generating new leads through content. The effectiveness of sharing content via email is declining, it’s harder than ever to connect on the phone, people are apprehensive about immediately giving out their contact details, and social media has become more about likes and less about real results.
In short, creating content to generate leads can be challenging, time consuming and expensive.
But, what if you didn’t have to spend time and money creating content in the first place? What if you could generate qualified B2B sales leads without it?
How many of your salespeople perform at their peak potential? Probably not enough. For decades, sales teams have depended on tools and practices that don’t maximize effectiveness and execution, because they don’t address key challenges at the heart of selling: getting reps trained and up to speed fast, keeping them aligned and ready to sell at all times, helping them work together to manage and complete deals efficiently. Learn how social business drives dramatic performance improvements for individual reps and sales organizations as a whole, as verified in a major new study by a top-three global consulting firm.
The typical strategy for meeting sales targets is to set aggressive individual rep quotas, rely on your top reps to achieve them, and then hope to get enough from the rest of your team to get over the top. Find out how to make a major shift in your sales approach for the better in order to both increase individual sales rep effectiveness and improve collaborative team selling.

The late 1990s marked AXA Bank’s foray into email marketing. For the first phase of this project, AXA Bank management decided to use a bulk email tool to push Web content to customers.
