Now that you're a Premium Member, the first thing you'll want to do is curate the content on your shiny new premium profiles.
Think of these as your virtual conference booth but instead of being limited to a 3-day conference in one location--they're open for prospects to find you 24 hours a day/365 days a year from anywhere in the world. Not bad especially considering you didn't have to pay 50k like you usually do for your conference booths, am I right? 😉
Not only that, but your sales team will also now be able to leverage your premium profiles as sales collateral to build trust with prospects and close more deals by showing off what real clients like them think about working with you. After all the best sales person is a satisfied customer.
Okay, so let's dive into how to customize and tailor the content on your new Premium Profiles profiles. Below is a quick video walking you through how to access the profile editor and customize the content on each of your profiles.
IMPORTANT: Remember that each product has its own profile and each profile should have its own content to communicate the value and sell that specific product.
