Another reason why sales needs marketing ninjas

One of the biggest challenges any sales team encounters is identifying the correct persona to target. Buyers today are hammered by content that is not relevant to the pains they are trying to address. SmartBug researched and architected the personas, relevant pain, messaging, and general approach to Conversica's targeting plan. SmartBug is a dependable team of marketing ninja's who deliver at the highest level. I would highly recommend engaging with their team. You will walk away impressed and questioning what have you been doing this entire time without them.

Like bringing a band of superheros on board

Smartbug has been instrumental in rocketing our company's marketing approach forward into the 21st century. They came on board during a major shift in strategy and have been there to help with both the baby steps and the giant leaps forward. Working with our account managers Drew and Ken has been like bringing two super heros on board the team. I am consistently impressed by their intelligence, professionalism, patience, creativity, and care. They are generous with their time and knowledge, equally willing to jump in and brainstorm with us, to pick apart analytics, answer questions, and of course, execute on deliverables. In the past our CEO has been skeptical of external agencies that try to apply a prefab, one-size-fits-all approach to complex issues. That has absolutely not been our experience with Smartbug. And indeed, he has been so impressed by the partnership, he’s touted it as a model to other departments. They’ve set a high bar!

Like having special forces

We've had the pleasure of working with Drew and Ken from Smart Bug for the last several months. We were drawn to the firm b/c of their Diamond rating with Hubspot and b/c our first contact inside the firm was Jen Spencer, an entrepreneur herself who'd benefitted from the Smart Bug method. My co-founder and I run a very lean operation, but pride ourselves on punching above our weight. It was important to find a team that could quickly get up to speed on our product, understand our brand and speak in our voice. Drew and Ken exceeded expectation. Not only did they drop in like special forces to shore up functional needs like copy writing and customizing Hubspot, but they were willing to operate like internal team members, turning on a dime when we called an audible to launch a last minute webinar promotion. More than a few weekend emails flew back and forth between us. Exactly the kind of dedication you want from an agency partner.
