A strong B2B go-to-market strategy must have messaging elements like target market and competitive differentiation, brand strategy, and supporting digital operations elements, such as websites. Integrating branding with effective, customer-friendly web design is a key step in making an impression and being memorable among website visitors and potential customers. Consistency and creativity are essential to creating an effective go-to-market strategy and a recognizable brand with a powerful digital footprint and do it well.
"It depends" is one of the most frustrating answers to a question. What does it cost? It depends. How long will it take? It depends. Are you available? It depends. It feels like a non-answer. A cop-out. A skirting of commitment. Avoidance. But other times, “it depends” is very real. It is a conditional answer. For example, a price can be quantity dependent or tiered for the level of support needed. Delivery times can also be dependent on when a service is needed (is it an emergency?), location, and backorders.
When Atomic Revenue met the AIE management team in 2019, the company was facing a myriad of challenges, including, but not limited to, the fact that most revenue was tied to one client who was contemplating a reduced contract. AIE, also known as Alternatives in Engineering, also had a confusing brand identity, a website security issue, a longer sales cycle than most, trade show spend that was not paying off, and a multi-generational family leadership team taking over the company. Then the pandemic hit, and their largest client did, in fact, minimize their service contract.
Have you ever wondered what motivates B2B companies to reach out to Atomic Revenue for support? A truly comprehensive list of these reasons would be a mile long, so for the sake of this piece we’re going to break down seven of the most common scenarios that we hear repeated time and time again when having initial conversations with our clients.
An effective Chief Revenue Officer is an integrator. A successful facilitator. A tech-savvy leader who is the champion of companywide objectives across all departments.

To answer these and other important questions, Atomic Revenue looks at the entire process of how revenue flows through your company, starting with a diagnosis of over 130 revenue-related processes to learn what roadblocks need to be removed. Then we resolve the issues with a data-driven strategy, and finally optimize the results to ensure you reach your revenue goals with more efficiency and less struggle, year-over-year.
Since your business’s digital footprint has never been more important, you took the first step to make sure it’s the best it can be with an audit. At Atomic Revenue we call these Digital Operations Audits. But now what? What did you do with the information gathered from that audit? Now you have all this info, but where do you start?
Digital Operations encompasses your entire digital footprint and the results from your digital marketing, sales, and customer advocacy efforts. Each element of your digital presence must not only have its own strategy but work in correlation with every other element. Your website is your primary piece of online real estate, but how does social media marketing feed into that?
What is your content strategy to drive qualified leads? How does marketing automation play into developing those leads to be sales-ready? Does your online presence encourage your community to advocate on your behalf? If you’re not sure, it may be time to rethink your digital operations approach.
When it comes to lowering your customer acquisition cost (CAC) and increasing revenue, it’s no longer optional to have a Customer Relationship Management tool or “CRM” and not use it to its fullest extent. Especially now – we are in the age of digital selling and customer relations like never before.
