The world is flooded with new technology products and software to help with sales, marketing and customer service. But with so many different solutions out there, it can be hard to know which ones are worth the investment.
For those of you who are looking into new technology, you may have come across the inbound marketing giant HubSpot, which is used by 52,000 customers in over 100 countries. But is it worth the investment for your company?
Would you like to see the return on your marketing investment? Or evaluate how good your sales team are at upselling existing customers? Or even understand how loyal your customers are?
Whenever customers are looking to purchase a new product or service, they can often be skeptical about the feature and benefits of this, along with the price too. This is usually exaggerated when customers are looking into entering a long-term contract. In these cases, simply reassuring the customer may not be enough, and our experts at JDR have found that it is often better to show customers rather than tell them. The best way to do this is through the use of case studies, showing the benefits of your product and services to customers, as well as offering quantifiable and empirical results.
By the time an email lands in a potential customer's inbox, you've done a lot of work.

Humans have an incredibly powerful connection to stories. It seems that, evolutionarily, they're a key part of how our brains developed. To this day, stories have the potential to be the best way for people to understand even complex data in an evocative, memorable way. In a digital world, there are more ways to share powerful stories than ever before.
Online reviews are an incredibly powerful tool, for good or ill. Positive reviews online will inevitably mean more people showing an interest in your website and a big boost for your brand, while a negative review can break a business. In this day and age, a business needs to do everything it can to utilise positive online reviews and turn them into opportunities.
Links form a crucial part of off-page SEO. It's almost impossible for search engines to determine the value of a web page without links, regardless of how fresh or in-depth the page content may be.
