3. Case Studies

When to Use Case Studies

Case studies are particularly powerful if they involve popular companies. For example, doing a case study of Microsoft will provide strong evidence, which should convince prospects from similar industries to testor even purchaseyour product or service.

Create a separate section on your website or blog that features all case studies.

How to Create Case Studies

There are many great resources out there about creating case studies. You could use this template (or the included case study examples) as inspiration.[12]

Throughout years of testing different collateral I believe case studies have the best impact on your businesses growth. A case study backs up your pitch to prospective customers with real world proof. The idea would be to have multiple case studies that focus on all the verticals you sell in to. If the prospective customer can relate more to case study it will increase their chance of purchasing.

When to Use Company Awards

Of course, the requirement for presenting company awards on your website is that you’ve won some. If you have, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t place them on your site.

How to Win Company Awards

First of all, identify important awards in your niche. After you google and find suitable awards, you’ll often be able to apply for one without being nominated. For example, if you’re a content marketing agency, you could apply for a Content Marketing Award.[15]
