How does They Ask, You Answer stimulate business growth?

There are three main ways in which They Ask, You Answer drives business growth.

  • Reduce sales cycle and increase conversion rates

    They Ask, You Answer reduces sales cycles by using content to pre-qualify and educate your audience during the sales cycle. This means your sales team aren’t spending time answering the same questions over and over which will rapidly advance the sales cycle forward.

  • Increase in organic leads

    Another way They Ask, You Answer stimulates business growth is by increasing your SEO rankings and website traffic. At its core, They Ask, You Answer is all about creating the content that your healthcare audience is looking for allowing them to move onwards through their buyer’s journey.

    This includes publishing at least three articles a week. This increased website traffic acts as a runway to business growth. When more of your ideal audience visits your website, there’s a greater chance they’ll become customers, leading to increased revenues. Additionally, more traffic enhances brand visibility, helping a business to become more recognised and trusted.

  • Becoming a respected voice in your industry

    Ultimately, the They Ask, You Answer digital sales and marketing framework will establish you as an authoritative voice in your industry. Through creating relevant, unbiased, and educational content you’ll become the place your audience turns to for answers, online and in person.

    Building trust with your audience by talking about things in a way others don’t talk about will only help your medical device company build brand awareness, website traffic, leads and finally revenue.

How do you know it’s right for you?

Now you may be wondering, this all sounds amazing, but it won’t work for my business or in my industry, and this is where we tell you that you’re wrong. They Ask, You Answer has worked across 100’s industries including healthcare and medical device.

Fundamentally, every business is the same, sales and business success is built on client trust. It doesn’t matter what your industry is or what you’re selling, if no one trusts you, no one will buy from you.

Issues, concerns, and fears are the one thing that all buyers share, if you can address these early in the process, they’ll be in a better position to convert.

If this has still not convinced you, then ask your sales team if they ever get asked questions on a sales call. If your sales team are being asked any questions at all then this is the right business philosophy for you. How much time could they save by having these questions addressed before they even met with a potential customer?

  • “They Ask, You Answer” in medical device

    Medical device is a great industry for the “They Ask, You Answer” business philosophy because everyone is always asking questions. It’s an ever-growing learning industry that could benefit from a thought leader.

    At the moment there are very few companies who are using this framework, and even fewer successfully which is why it’s important for you to start this journey now before your competitors do.

    Here are a few examples of companies in your industry that are doing it successfully:

    Thorough Care
    Block Imaging

What is the main problem that will prevent business growth with They Ask, You Answer?

When it comes down to running this philosophy there are a few key things that might hinder your journey to growing your business.

  • Not accepting this as a business-wide philosophy

    The biggest problem that we see as coaches is companies not fully understanding that this is a company-wide philosophy that requires support, help and work from everyone in the business.

    While Marketing is the primary team that’ll be working on this, they’ll need support from other teams like sales, regulatory and management. Without this support, these companies never reach their full potential.

  • Not being consistent

    Consistency is a crucial part of running a successful They Ask, You Answer campaign. It’s estimated that your audience has to see your message up to 15 times before they convert into buyers. This means that not only do you need to be putting out the same content but similar content to reach this.

    If your content is always changing, then that number 15 resets, or at best rolls backwards, and your audience will be thrown back to the beginning of the buyer’s journey.

    If consistency is something that you want to learn more about, check out our guide to consistent marketing, and make sure you keep your marketing on track.
