How to Build Successful Advertising Sales Whitepaper
Tradition Print advertising has been rapidly replaced by Digital. As a result, it has been more challenging for publishing and media companies to prove the value of their advertising propositions. Publishers have had to change with the times to create brand loyalty from their audiences through targeted, quality content and develop multi-channel advertising models for their clients.
Whether you are offering free or paid-for subscriptions, you need to ensure that your process for managing subscriptions is efficient and does not put too much pressure on resources, and that the experience is seamless for the end-user.
With Workbooks CRM, you can manage the entire subscription process, from marketing your subscription options, registering interest, to payment and fulfilment. Workbooks CRM helps you generate subscription leads, nurture those leads and subsequently manage the entire sales process all the way to completion. You can log orders, invoice subscriptions or take payment online, and you can easily synchronise the information with your finance system. Once the subscription is confirmed, you can automate fulfilment using workflows and processes, ensuring the best customer experience possible. Managing the renewal process is simple too: automation can trigger reminders to inform customers that their subscriptions are coming to an end. Activities such as phone calls can be scheduled for your renewal team to chase those customers who have not yet renewed. Marketing campaigns can be sent to re-engaged lapsed subscribers. And with real-time information about the renewal status, you know where your team should focus and prioritise.
