B2B Expert Storytelling™ Coaching

VSN works closely with clients to surface and define expert stories that are highly relevant and persuasive to decision makers. We collaborate with your marketing team and subject matter experts on a day-to-day basis, but we recognize that our true mission is to empower your front-line sales people. Our process identifies and creates powerful, persuasive, timely stories so your whole business development team confidently carries your message to clients and prospects.

A retained VSN engagement establishes a monthly rhythm where we identify Expert Storytelling opportunities, develop and maintain an editorial plan in concert with your team. We write copy, develop eBooks, moderate webinars and podcasts and coach your SMEs. Projects may be assigned to our creatives and/or your experts according to defined goals. We consult with you on an ongoing basis to keep the messaging on track.

Expert Story Workshops

VSN guides your sales and marketing team through a structured process that identifies compelling and relevant story opportunities. We lead a workshop at your premises or via remote platform and deliver an editorial agenda. Expert story assets may be published under the bylines of your experts or presented as “commissioned” to VSN, as needs dictate.

VSN Gold Papers™

We invented the Gold Paper™ to help solution providers deliver a more dynamic, focused and effective communications alternative to the common white paper. Custom-written Gold Papers define the distinctive insights behind your solution offerings with brevity and precision, to help your account executives counter objections and expedite the sales cycle.

VSN Research POV

VSN dives deep into your survey dataset to extract key nuggets that drive great stories. We help you expand these into multiple POV Papers or other content assets that extend the exposure of your proprietary research across several months, yielding greater ROI on your initial investment.
