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, 18, or 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 subject matter experts (SMEs).

To achieve digital sales and marketing mastery, your team will need skill-specific training. Your team will meet directly with IMPACT’s SMEs for specific coaching 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 mastery and 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 expertise you could have in-house. You just need the right training; that’s where we come in. IMPACT will train your 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.

IMPACT's They Ask, You Answer Mastery program overview

The Mastery program brings IMPACT’s experts together to help your business achieve its growth goals. You choose the duration — 12, 18, or 24 months — then work with your account manager and account executive to get started.

IMPACT experts you will work with

During your They Ask, You Answer Mastery program, you can expect to work with several IMPACT team members: Your account executive, your account manager, your digital sales and marketing coach, and several SME coaches. 

  • Your They Ask, You Answer advisor handles all of your initial conversations and makes sure we prescribe the best solutions for your business.
  • Your account manager coordinates the IMPACT services you need, ensuring effective communication between teams. Think of this person as your general contractor, getting everything set up and verifying that nothing falls through the cracks.
  • Your coach works with your senior leadership team and guides you through your digital sales and marketing transformation. Your coach identifies your biggest areas for improvement and helps you set priorities.
  • Subject matter experts will help you optimize your HubSpot portal, build a content strategy, implement video in your sales process, and much more.

Together, these experts provide a personalized program that can take your business from marketing dependency to autonomy and mastery. 

With IMPACT, you will break down the walls between sales and marketing, creating a single revenue team that ensures alignment and cooperation. 

When sales and marketing are working together, you can be sure that each team’s efforts will be more efficient and effective. The content that marketers produce will be connected to the questions that salespeople hear.
