PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Global research indicated by Edelman’s trust barometer shows that consumers trust each other and view each other as viable sources for information far beyond employees, salespeople, or industry experts. Your happy customers can become your best salespeople. And marketers know that high-quality, evergreen content has huge SEO and paid search benefits.

Customers want to know before they even begin to speak to the sales team that the product or solution they consider works. No matter where they may land in the sales cycle, your customer evidence asset demonstrates the value of your solution through the success of your customer.

With this in mind, we take a high-level approach to creating Customer Evidence content, utilizing all platforms and all formats to tell the story of your solution in a cohesive way.

Package of content formats for the program includes:

SCOPE OF THE PROGRAM

In our Customer Evidence Program for Microsoft in Central and Eastern Europe, to date in FY18 we have produced, or have in production, success stories from businesses across 14 vertical industries in 13 CEE countries — representing 44% of the countries in the region.

These narratives of success are portrayed through written, visual, and audiovisual content formats, both in English and localized to the customer’s region, across all platforms: internal, external, and social.

STORYTELLING  

The challenge and at the same time a success factor is to present a solution in a storytelling way relevant for the audience. The story should present the business benefits from the perspective of customers and end users. This requires taste and style in copywriting, as well as journalistic experience in storytelling, while also listening to customers during interviews to be able to accurately translate their message into written and visual stories.
