Hosted By: Gartner Webinars

If your customers respond “yes” to the ultimate question (would you recommend our solution to others like you?) you’ve just located a potential advocate.

This is good news for marketing and sales – since advocates have been proven to be your best sales people. But not all advocates are equal in their influence and ability to support your goals.

The upper segment of your advocates (the evangelists) help you accelerate sales cycles, grow revenue and encourage loyalty better than anyone. But you need a process to find them, nurture them, and to sustain their high level of enthusiasm.

Discussion Topics:

  • Understand the business case for mobilizing their advocates, and why evangelists are the secret weapon of any advocacy marketing program.
  • Use the ultimate question to find their pool of advocates, and how to segment them into logical groups where they can be most effectively utilized.
  • Use the upper rung of their advocates, (the evangelists) as a catalyst to nurture other customer types into higher levels of advocacy.
