So I help SDRs understand the why and the purpose of the content.
If someone comes to our website and they download like a data-sheet; most SDRs when they see that they follow up and the first thing is “Saw that you downloaded this. This is why it’s important. Let me get 15 minutes”, and I hate that.
I’m like, give me time to read this, give me time to understand if this will help me. I don’t want you to sell me on something right away.
So I provide my SDRs the promo materials that I put together for that piece of content. So they understand why is someone downloading this and what value can get out of it.
And I work with them so that when they create a message as a follow-up, they’re giving more information than what that person can find in that datasheet… acting a sort of like a Delta between what they can see and what they can’t. And then creating compelling messaging around that.
I think it’s essential for marketing to not just work with SDRs but enable them to get to that point. Because it’s a whole different ballgame when you can act as sort of that consultant versus someone who’s just selling somebody something.
