Value Marketing Tools
How do you move beyond one-size-fits-all white papers / content to fuel your marketing campaigns and motivate purchase decisions?
Leverage Alinean to develop the most creative, compelling and credible value-focused Interactive Online Content / Tools to grab your prospect’s attention, better engage buyers and accelerate purchase decisions.
Some examples of Alinean powered Value Marketing Tools include:
Your prospects want help uncovering the opportunities they might be missing, or the challenges / issues they should be addressing as a priority.
Alinean Assessment tools help survey prospects to self assess current capability / maturity and uncover challenges. These online interactive tools provide insightful challenge surveys, scoring of current practices and comparing these scores with peer benchmarks (collected from all prior engagements), delivering a gap analysis, and recommend priorities, solutions and next steps.
ROI / TCO Calculators
Buyers need to know the “do nothing” costs, and unique value you can deliver earlier than ever in the decision making process (where 74% of deals are won / lost).
Alinean ROI / TCO Calculators help your prospects quantify current “do nothing” costs and the unique business value and TCO advantages you provide. The interactive online tools can quickly take your existing spreadsheets to create an incredible on-line experience, or leverage Alinean analysts to create the right differentiating ROI / TCO model and metrics (all 3rd party validated for superior credibility than in-house efforts).
Helping a prospect figure out what challenges they should focus on, which solutions they should consider and the unique value you can deliver is key to getting “do nothing” to “yes”.
By answering a few simple discovery questions, Alinean’s ValueStory® self-service tools guide your prospects to the insights, value storytelling and business value quantification they need to motivate change and understand your differentiating value.
Advancing beyond just the quantified business value you can deliver, Alinean’s ValueStory provides buyers with powerful visuals, insights, storytelling and relevant success stories to motivate and accelerate the decision making process.
