Go to Market Plan – Investor Presentation Template

The investor presentation template is for those that are raising money for a startup who will need to create an investor presentation (pitch deck, the deck). Unfortunately, some startups are so passionate about what they do that they do not develop an effective pitch deck. The investor presentation is typically left to the end (days before the pitch) and the visual presentation of the story is not on par with the verbal explanation. An ultimate pitch deck for startups includes a small number of slides (10 -15) that need to be very polished in order to make a great first impression. The investor presentation template includes examples on an investor pitch deck. While not all of the investor presentation slide examples need to be used (and the order of the deck will vary, based upon how one tells the story), but the deck facilitates the development and delivery of a winning investor presentation.

Go to Market Plan -Call Guide for SDRs & BDRs

This is the ultimate B2B call guide for facilitating follow-up conversations with prospects and qualified leads in order to convert them to qualified sales opportunities.

A B2B call guide framework is much more effective and natural for a sales development (SDR) than a call script. An SDR call guide must be integrated with the B2B lead generation team as this team usually contributes up to 50% of the sales pipeline. As well, the call guide for an SDR has to be consistent with the B2B sales process. This is because qualified sales leads are passed from the SDR to the inside sales rep or field sales rep with the goal of conversion to a qualified sales opportunity. By using the B2B call guide framework one can bring marketing, sales development and sales onto the same page with the same goal.
