When you shortlist vendors be sure to look into:
- Integrating content from existing repositories or uploading copies [of what you have in your repositories] into the cloud? Aim for one single source of truth!
- How does the solution integrate with the given CRM system?
- Single-Sign-On (SSO)? Security?
- Are the rules for how the search feature weights results shared by all client companies or can each client customize?
- Exit strategy for content & meta data when you change vendors? Export feature?
- How does the solution support you to meet the challenges that come with doing business globally? Which languages are supported for the content & for the UI (user interface)?
- Flexibility for customization / your influence on the roadmap / number of developers at the vendor? Be careful when you get a lot of influence on the roadmap as this might mean you are dealing with an agency / development shop & not a product company – you might be the only customer or the biggest customer & they might go under if they can’t find other customers.
- Easy to integrate into your existing IT infrastructure / processes?
- Does the solution help to manage how you show your complex portfolio of products, services, & solutions to your sales people & channel partners? How quickly can that be updated for org changes? Is it the vendor making the changes or is there an editor/admin user interface?
- Analytics & social features that allow usage metrics & feedback from sales to marketing (ratings/voting/comments) & uploading/sharing of content: Sales User Generated Content (UGC)?
- Is there an intelligent way to maintain the ‘single source’ of content (or content blocks) being re-used a lot? Can documents be [auto-]generated to be highly customized for the specific sales situation / vertical / geo etc – yet look polished?
- Is content intelligence as in BI (Business Intelligence) & analytics for the Content Lifecycle) available? Where in its life cycle is my content? What gets bad ratings? What needs to be retired? What isn’t being used? What’s missing? What’s used the most? What closes deals?

Amplemarket amplemarket.com @amplemarket The pandemic was a catalyst for remote sales motions. It’s not uncommon to see enterprise account executives close multi-million dollar deals without ever meeting the buyer in person. This highlights the importance of a sales stack easy to implement, learn & manage; individual reps need the tools necessary to hit their quota, & managers need to have visibility into what’s happening across their teams without being able to be physically next to their teams on a daily basis. Most sales teams need to stitch together a variety of point solutions to execute their sales motions. Amplemarket can replace a number of those across a few different categories. It was launched in 2019 by MIT alumnus. Originating from Portugal, the 3 founders saw firsthand the challenges of scaling B2B sales in other companies & realized existing point solutions don’t address core problems. The excessive fragmentation of the present-day sales stack combined with recent advances in natural language processing (NLP) set up the opportunity for an all-in-one compound solution that can leverage the virtuous data cycles of having a central system of action. Sales teams have more SaaS subscriptions than they know what to do with, leading to friction & added operational complexity. They designed Amplemarket to rally different pieces of the B2B sales process around a single prospect versus a collection of siloed, disparate tools. Email deliverability is probably one of the most important problems that go-to-market teams have to deal with when doing B2B sales. Email deliverability is a complex multivariate problem & a lot of the things companies did 5 years ago to keep a healthy deliverability aren’t enough. Better Deliverability -> More Sales Conversations -> Increased Sales Pipeline -> More New Customers -> More Revenue! For B2B companies improving their top of the funnel, engaging with more prospects translates directly into more revenue at the bottom of the funnel. So, really, for sales teams: Deliverability = Revenue! San Francisco, California, USA

CRM magazine’s article ‘Sales Enablement Tools’:
“[…] Scott Santucci [has] seen an explosion of interest in this area over the past year. As with any technology, however, those rushing to buy the hot newness without first establishing a clear strategy are doomed to fail. It’s not that there’s a lack of information—far from it. Instead, it’s hard to wade through the sheer tonnage of information & determine what’s up-to-date, relevant, & in a form amenable to the particular sales conversation. “It’s a very simple, yet really complicated problem […] Santucci says each of the relevant vendors […] cater to slightly different problems. […]”
In case you have not seen ‘Is Sales Enablement just lipstick on a Knowledge Management pig?’ It is a must read by Gerhard Gschwandtner.
