Project Detail

Salestrong is a sales performance consultancy focused on delivering training and coaching programmes to teams and their leaders in a bid to build capability and drive sales growth.  Established in 2013, the company was reliant on several large corporate clients and approached Digital Media Edge as they recognised the need to broaden their client base. They also wanted to position themselves as leaders in the sales coaching and training sector.

Our Proposal & Implementation

Digital Media Edge practice a strategy first approach and it was clear from our initial market research that Sales Coaching and training is a very corporate environment.  We believed Salestrong could break the mould with a highly personal and social approach, backed up with a good volume of really high-quality content.

As well as opening up multiple social platforms, we also presented the company founder Steve as the figurehead for all online activity, focusing heavily on creating lots of video and written content from his point of view in a bid to further establish a sense of authority in the marketplace.

From this point we were then able to:

  • Create an engaging YouTube channel with Steve at the forefront, complete with search engine optimised videos, branded thumbnails and playlists.
  • Focus on a quality, up to date blog with embedded video content and optimised key words.
  • Implement a structured social media schedule that saw regular content go out utilising effective hashtags, tagging in key influencers and joining key conversations.
  • Update the website to create a cleaner, more modern design with welcome video and simple event promotion to generate interest.
  • Set up two opt-in email campaigns to increase awareness and generate new clients.
  • Ensure web pages and social media pages used the latest technology to track traffic and build custom audiences to generate leads.
