Why Social Proof is the Key to Every Type of Marketing with Andy Crestodina
Play • 1 hr 28 min

Any marketing claim you make that doesn’t have some form of evidence is a weak statement. 

Unsupported claims just lead to undifferentiated content, a lack of trust, and low conversions. 

But proof on your web pages and in your content does the opposite. It builds credibility and gives people a reason to believe in your brand. 

One piece of content that offers social proof, acts as conversion copy, and works in a content strategy: case studies. 

In this episode, Andy Crestodina, the co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Orbit Media Studios, explains how proof is the key to every type of marketing, whether you’re playing the long game of account-based marketing (ABM) or building your email list.

Show Topics

  • Use case studies to build trust
  • Data points can support sales messages
  • Reduce the investment in the ROI
  • Create sales enablement content
  • Don’t publish content without an expert contributor
  • Have prominence, promise, proof
