«Return to Blog List THIS is How to Organize Case Studies Online
In sales and marketing, it’s the ultimate question. How do you get the right information in front of a prospect at the right time?
It’s especially tricky now that customers self-direct their learning online.
As you grow your stable of customer case studies and success stories, organize them so that a prospect can find exactly the type of story of interest to him.
That usually means sorting – and enabling search of – your stories by industry, type of solution, product and maybe geographic location.
Here are a couple of examples.
Major software company SAS organizes its customer successes by industry, solution, technology, country, alphabetically, and with a “Search All” capability. If they have a particular case study, the searcher will find it with this thorough approach.
Oracle organizes theirs in a similar way, by applications, technology, services, industry and alphabetical.
Both companies also feature a few of their best stories on the search page for quicker access.
Such a search function may be too much for organizations with a handful of case studies. If so, create a list of your stories by headline and include a few descriptive words about industry, product, type of solution, location or anything else relevant to your audience.
Put yourself in the searcher’s chair and make it as easy as possible.
