Clients often ask for our help creating useful sales tools, and we’ve delivered dozens of different types, from customer win videos to datasheets to white papers and many more.

A battlecard is basically a brief cheat sheet that helps sales strategize their client approach, in a highly focused at-a-glance format.  Generally, it’s a document that is narrowly focused and delivers all the critical information sales needs on one page.

Battlecard topics include, but are not limited to: competitive and proprietary product overviews, key sales messages, or marketing strategies. They are also excellent for helping a channel sales force that needs to quickly understand the value of partner solutions.

This year, we’ve delivered a record number of battlecards, and we hear from clients that they are really hitting the mark.

What’s your experience with battlecards? Do you use them?
