The Importance of LinkedIn and Content for Sales

  • Donald and Gabe discuss the strategic use of LinkedIn and content creation as essential tools in sales. 
  • Gabe, having seen over a 100,000% increase in impressions year-over-year since heavily investing in LinkedIn content, stresses the massive potential content holds for generating business leads and enhancing company visibility.

Content Creation vs. Traditional Outreach

  • Gabe explains how previously, as an agency, their focus was on quietly promoting clients’ brands in the background. 
  • Initial content experiments showed promise, leading to a more extensive commitment to content production, which complemented traditional outbound efforts. This dual approach has led to record-breaking business months, with half of their new deals sourced from content-related activities.

Frontline Strategies: Empowering SDRs with Content

  • Gabe points out the practical application of content in day-to-day sales operations.
  • He advocates for equipping SDRs with ready-to-use content crafted by high-credibility figures in the company, typically the CEOs or recognized industry leaders. This strategy ensures that the SDRs are not just cold calling but engaging potential clients with meaningful content that establishes trust and authority from the outset.

Tips for Creating Effective Sales Content

  • Gabe suggests starting simple with text posts and gradually moving to more engaging formats like videos, which have proven to offer the highest engagement. 
  • He shares how Alleyoop has embraced an all-hands-on-deck approach in content creation, with various team leaders contributing to their robust content strategy.
