In May 2010, the chief pain officer of SalesBrain, a neuroscience-based marketing research and coaching company located in California, United States, has been approached by the marketing head of Digital Technology International (DTI), a provider of technology solutions to the global publishing industry, based in Utah, United States, for advice. DTI has been struggling with communicating the core value proposition of its offerings to customers consisting of leading newspaper publishers. Its frontline people are delivering messages that are technical, jargon-filled and complex. Publisher-customers are unable to understand quickly how the technology solutions being offered by DTI can help them become competitive. The sales messages are also not consistent. Not all sales persons of DTI seem to be speaking the same language.
SalesBrain is suggesting a three-step process wherein it will identify the pain points being experienced by the publisher-customers of DTI; create a compelling set of claims that DTI could offer about its technology products; and guide its frontline salespersons towards developing appropriate sales scripts that they could use with prospective clients. SalesBrain is deploying the cutting-edge tools of neuroscience marketing in each of the three processes.
