What is included in IMPACT's comprehensive They Ask, You Answer Mastery program?
This all-inclusive program allows you to take control of your marketing, with help from IMPACT's expert coaches and trainers
By John Becker
To build in-house mastery of your digital sales and marketing, you need a cohesive plan that blends strategy and tactical instruction.
IMPACT’s They Ask, You Answer Mastery program provides strategic goal setting and skills training for your organization over the course of 12-24 months.
For strategic planning, you will work with an IMPACT coach who will lead your team through detailed planning sessions that establish and chart quarterly goals. Your coach, along with your account manager, will evaluate your needs and coordinate your training with IMPACT experts.
To achieve mastery, your team will need skill-specific training. Your team will meet directly with IMPACT’s trainers for specific sessions tailored to your needs.
By bringing tactical training and strategic planning together, the They Ask, You Answer Mastery program offers a comprehensive and individualized plan for clients to grow their team and achieve their goals.
Complete digital sales and marketing independence
At IMPACT, we believe the traditional agency-client model is broken.
Why should your business have to forever rely on an expensive outside agency to solve all of your sales and marketing needs?
Why should you pay someone else to write about your business, to schedule your marketing emails, and to keep your HubSpot portal clean?
We think you should invest in your team instead of paying a premium for the expertise you could have in-house.
You just need the right training.
That’s where we come in.
IMPACT will train your inbound marketing and sales teams, establishing alignment and interdependence in the process.
IMPACT’s program will take your team from starting point to mastery, with an end-goal of independence and self-sufficiency — all in line with the strategic goals we develop together.
