Better B2B Sales & Marketing Messaging Starts Here

PitchMaps gives your company a simpler, more meaningful answer to the “What do you do?” question. Then, we map this core pitch to your sales conversations and content marketing. It’s the route to higher win rates, less price pressure, and more alignment across your organization.

Why rethink the conver­sation?

86% of the value propositions salespeople present aren’t relevant enough to get the customer to take action.* Yikes.

You have to get the words right

And it’s not only the words you use in sales conversations. You want a core pitch that maps to your marketing campaigns, online presence, collateral, emails, … everything. (Hey, that’s important, since 80-90% of marketing collateral is seen as useless by sales.*)

Here’s how we do it: We uncover your cause

We help you drive more revenue by uncovering your cause (your purpose / calling / “why”) – and aligning your sales and marketing conversations around that cause.

Step 1

Uncovery

Uncover your cause and develop your core pitch.

  • Executive Strategy Session
  • Competitor Message Analysis
  • Stakeholder Interviews
  • Cause & Core Pitch

Step 2

PitchMap

Map your pitch to spoken, written, and visual customer touchpoints.

  • 5-Point Pitch
  • 8-Second Quick Intro
  • Summary / Boilerplate
  • Intro Email / Prospect Letter
  • Whiteboard / Back-of-a-Napkin
  • Scripts, Sayings, and Stories

Step 3

Alignment

Get your people and your practices on message.

  • Rollout Recommendations
  • Org. Alignment Framework
  • Content Marketing Strategy
  • Optional Sales Training

When you and your competitors are saying so many of the same things, it’s hard to tell you apart.

By reframing your messaging around your cause, we elevate the conversation from the solutions you offer … to the calling you serve. This naturally brings more authenticity and passion into your marketing messages. Your people get more excited about telling your story. And your customers and prospects have something more meaningful to remember you for. Sure, you still need to describe your solutions. But framing them inside your cause makes them more valuable. Competitors may copy your service offerings or technologies. But no one can can copy your cause.

“It’s not what you make (i.e., your products
and services), it’s what you stand for.”

— Jim Collins, Author of Good to Great

Get the messaging right and you get: Higher win rates, Less price pressure, 3x as many deals closed

Now, activate your message with content marketing

We turn your company knowledge into simple, shareable content that impacts buying decisions.

In a world where two thirds of the buyer’s journey takes place online, content marketing is one of the most effective ways to get your message out. Content marketing costs 62% less per lead than traditional marketing, yet generates 3x as many leads.*

It’s time for a simpler approach.
Although content marketing is incredibly effective, it can also be incredibly complex. So, we’ve developed a simple approach for B2B companies that anchors their content marketing in bimonthly ebook campaigns. Here’s how it works:

  • Create a short, powerful ebook on a topic of high interest to your customer base.
  • Extend the impact of the ebook with related blog posts and tweets.
  • Offer the ebook online for brand awareness, lead gen, and lead nurturing.
  • Use it as a sales enablement tool to send to prospects before or after the sales call.
  • Use it for social selling to spark the interest of key individuals in your target accounts.

Q: Why PitchMaps?
A: The Creative Multiplier

You can’t win without creativity.
(It’s baked into our process and backed by our experience.)

Even in the B2B world, you’re still talking to a human.
While other firms focus on the process or formula for creating a brand message, we stress creativity. Why? Because at the end of the day, your B2B decision makers are still human. They still laugh and cry at all the same things that B2C consumers do. So you’ve got to go for the heart – otherwise you’ll end up just creating more noise in the marketplace.

Creative messaging can’t be written by committee.
Sure, collaborative sessions are part of the process. But that’s not where the magic happens. It happens when experienced creative professionals take your differentiators and develop unexpected new ways to describe them. This is the “art” part of the art and science equation. And for us, it’s built on more than 40 years of collective advertising and branding experience. Now we’re bringing this level of creativity to B2B sales and marketing conversations.

About Us

PitchMaps was founded by a team of three messaging experts with 40+ years combined experience helping companies communicate their value more clearly. We work with Fortune 500s, high-growth mid-market companies, and others looking to increase market share, improve customer retention, enter new markets, or drive organizational change.

“We weren’t supposed to be doing this”

This whole thing got started back when we had a creative services agency. We were supposed to be focusing on websites, brochures, ad campaigns, and the like. But, before we could even think about their marketing communications, we kept finding ourselves helping clients wrangle their brand positioning and core message.

Companies found our messaging engagements so valuable that they started hiring us to do just that. They recommended us to their friends. The word spread. And the rest is history. Before we knew it, we were a new company – one focused entirely on sales messaging and content marketing. (And one where all three founders happened to have the same last name.)
