7 Must-Know Sales Content Asset Management Technologies

A big part of the job for customer marketers is creating customer content assets - case studies, testimonials, customer videos, social cards, logo slides, ROI calculators, etc. However, you can create all of the content in the world, but it won’t deliver value unless that content is actually being used and consumed by the sales team and other departments, and making its way out in front of prospects’ eyeballs.

Sales Content Asset Management tools offer vendors a way to store, organize, distribute, and track their content assets. For example, one of our customers at UserEvidence, GitLab, syncs the customer content they create with UserEvidence into Highspot, and organizes their customer content in Highspot by industry, company size, stage in the buyer’s journey, and competitor, so reps can search and filter to find laser-targeted, hyper-relevant content to show their prospects. 🎯

Sales Content Asset Management tools also help close the loop on analyzing the usage and consumption of content (both internally by reps and externally by prospects on various channels), and tying content to the bottom line. For instance, a customer marketer could say that a certain case study was used in 37 opportunities, and influenced $300,000 in closed business. These analytics help customer marketers justify the ROI in the content they create, and glean insights into what content types are performing best. 📈

Below are 7 of the best sales content asset management technologies available today, according to our customer marketing technology landscape created in collaboration with Captivate Collective. Read on to learn more about each technology and see which can help your organization thrive. 👇
