At Digital Storyteller, we market for financial services companies. This can encompass a lot of different types of businesses that offer different products or services. Think law firms, HR consultants, commercial real estate firms, wealth advisories, commercial insurance, and more.
We know, a little bit random… but we love it! Read on to hear more about why we chose marketing for financial services (hint: this industry is wildly underserved).
Working in the financial services industry means helping our clients might look a bit different from your typical B2C marketing agency. So, how do we help our clients?
Today, we’ve got Andrew Marr, CEO and Owner of Digital Storyteller answering that very question. It’s your lucky day.
But what is the main goal of a digital marketing agency? We’re going to hand things off to Andrew.
What is the Main Goal of a Digital Marketing Agency?
There’s one major goal, and it’s simple. That is to shorten the sales cycles of our clients.
What is a Sales Cycle?
A sales cycle is defined as “the repeatable and tactical process salespeople follow to turn a lead into a customer.”
This includes everything from the first encounter a client has with your business (whether it be through seeing your posts on social media or through receiving an email) to closing the deal and follow-ups.
How Do We Help Our Clients Shorten Sales Cycles?
Well, there are a lot of things we do to achieve a shorter sales process at Digital Storyteller. This might look like:
- A clever email strategy
- An ongoing content marketing strategy
- A kick*** website (that’s functional and optimized for SEO!)
- Consistent branding
- A relatable, informative social media strategy
As you can see, there are a lot of different branches that come off of that tree.
The number one goal, however, for any marketing agency, is to use their toolkit to shorten sales cycles for their clients.
