SaaS Roundup #198

Hi there, 👋

Your customers are your biggest asset.

We all hate clichés, but if we all know so well how important customers are, why do we find it so challenging to work with them to attract new business?

This week, we tried to collect several resources that can help you with that. On our blog, Sleeknote's CMO Emil discusses customer testimonials — how to get them, where to publish them, and how to use them.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter,

The Ultimate Guide to Using Customer Testimonials to Boost Sales

Emil Kristensen

If I had to pick just one marketing tactic to use for the rest of my career, customer testimonials would be near the top of my list. They're authentic, customers trust them, and getting them... can be fun. We reached out to Emil from Sleeknote to ask about the best practices on collecting and using customer testimonials.
"People don’t trust brands, they trust other people. That doesn’t make brands powerless — customer testimonials are a powerful weapon they have at their disposal. However, a generic insincere endorsement is as good as not using any."

By now, we all know how important customer experience is for brands, especially in the subscription economy.

In this post, he shares the best and most necessary tools every marketing department needs.
"There's so much marketing technology to choose from that making the wrong decision is easier than ever. However, there is a suite of tools that will give you the perfect MarTech stack from 0 to scale."

7 Elements Of “Insanely” Persuasive Sales Product Demos

Chris Orlob,

Persuasion is a critical feature of a successful sales operation. However, what constitutes good persuasion is often a matter of (much) debate. No longer, at least when it comes to sales demos, because we now have analysis based on 3 Million product demos to understand what works.
"If doing a sales product demo FEELS easy and intuitive, watch out. Even if you have lots of product knowledge, doing a product demo persuasively is hard and counterintuitive. That’s right, COUNTERINTUITIVE. What do I mean? I mean that what feels right during a sales product demo usually causes failure."
