Figure 1 shows an example of generating demand through a LinkedIn post. A reader tagged one of their colleagues who they knew was either in the problem-aware, information-gathering mode, or decision-making mode of this topic, exposing them as a potential lead. This can not be considered a BOFU “lead”, someone who has expressed interest in our products or services, but it can be considered a TOFU lead, as there could be something there. Now it’s the job of Demand Gen to provide the correct content and sales to try and start a conversation around some of the challenges they are facing.

Figure 2 shows an example of a prospect becoming a lead after brand exposure and consuming the sales letter hosted through the website. This is an example of generating demand and an inbound lead, through demand generation.

Breakdown of Responses

Figure 3 shows an example of a prospect becoming a lead after being offered top-of-the-funnel content to help solve their problems. This is another example of how Demand Generation can support Lead Generation. It’s important to note that this prospect is not necessarily ready for an immediate call with a salesperson, as they still require content + “thinking time”. They would have requested a call if they were ready for a call immediately.

What is demand generation?

Demand Generation is a strategic approach to generate interest and demand for a company’s products or services or to tune in and attract and increase pre-existing demand.

It revolves around creating awareness about the challenges faced by potential customers and positioning the company’s solution by guiding prospects through the correct thought processes.

Why is demand generation in B2B important?

In the B2B landscape, buyers are more informed and often conduct extensive research before purchasing. Demand Generation is pivotal in the overall growth strategy, as it allows companies to attract these discerning buyers without the constant need for direct outreach. Instead of heavily relying on outbound processes, which can be labor-intensive, businesses can craft content that resonates with their target audience. This content, strategically disseminated across various channels, acts as a beacon, drawing in potential buyers and guiding them through decision-making.

The true power of demand generation, mainly when bolstered by content marketing, lies in its scalability and efficiency. Once a company has honed its understanding of its target audience and has a robust lead generation mechanism, it can churn out content that educates and entices. This content, whether it’s an insightful blog post, an engaging video, an informative webinar, or a comprehensive e-book, can be repurposed and reused, offering an unparalleled return on investment. Unlike traditional marketing endeavors that might require repeated spending, a meticulously crafted piece of content can continue attracting and converting leads for years, requiring minimal additional effort.

5 Phases To Growing Any B2B Business

Figure 1 shows the overall growth strategy and where demand generation is implemented. Demand generation is implemented after Phase 3; once new customers are signed up, companies must thoroughly interview them to extract their real-life experiences to have enough “marketing juice” to create content that drives demand.

Demand generation becomes indispensable in the B2B domain, where purchasing decisions are often protracted and involve multiple stakeholders. It ensures that potential buyers are always equipped with the requisite information to make an informed decision without constantly interacting with a company representative. By establishing your company as a thought leader and a reliable source of information, you pull in leads and nurture them, streamlining the subsequent sales process.

Lead Generation vs. Demand Generation

Lead generation uses outbound methods to find qualified prospects and turn them into leads. It requires “prospecting” to find “leads”, the same way people used to prospect in riverbeds to find gold. A prospect becomes a lead after demonstrating interest in your product or service.

Lead generation is typically more effective for capturing prospects in the lower parts of the funnel

In Figure 2, you can see how lead generation is used to capture MOFU - BOFU prospects, while demand generation can capture any prospects.

Lead generation is the process of building a highly targeted list of prospects and converting them into leads.

Demand Generation vs. Lead Generation

Demand Generation is creating educational content that is openly available for prospects to consume to generate demand for the solution. It can be used to support lead generation as it allows cadences to provide TOFU nurture and lead generation can be used to support demand generation.

13 Benefits of a Successful Demand Generation Strategy

Prospecting involves searching for and identifying potential leads for a business’s products or services. It is the first step in the sales process and entails reaching out to potential prospects to gauge their interest and determine if they fit the company’s ideal customer profile. When you are prospecting, you are working throuBullet listgh a cold batch of prospects, searching for leads that align with the ideal customer profile.

  1. Demand Generation Increases the Quality of Leads: When companies implement a thorough demand generation strategy, the quality of leads is generally higher. This is because prospects can consume enough information before deciding they are interested in a conversation.

  2. Demand Generation Increases the Number of Leads: A thorough demand generation strategy can attract more potential customers.

  3. Demand Generation Can Shorten the Sales Cycle: Having consumed valuable content, a well-informed prospect is often quicker to decide.

  4. Demand Generation Boosts Organic Traffic: Garnering interest in your brand leads to increased site traffic, and with a solid product and compelling web copy, you’ll notice an uptick in organically generated leads.

  5. Demand Generation Improves Customer Trust: Being an active voice in your industry conversations reminds your current customer base of your expertise and highlights your new product or service.

  6. Positive Impact on Funnel Metrics: A successful demand generation strategy will have a positive effect on every metric throughout your funnel, including increased connection rates, exposure lead rates, show-up rates, and close rates.

  7. Generates Inbound Enquiries: A well-executed strategy will naturally lead to more inquiries from interested prospects.

  8. Identifies Viral Content Potential: Demand generation helps you figure out which types of content have the potential to go viral.

  9. Tests Webinars and Content Funnels:** Before investing in Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaigns, demand generation allows you to test the effectiveness of webinars and content funnels.

  10. Empower SDRs with Fresh Content: Your Sales Development Representatives (SDRs) will continuously supply fresh content to engage potential clients.

  11. Positions Your Company as an Industry Thought Leader: Regularly producing insightful content can position your company as the go-to expert in your industry.

  12. Builds a Broad Following: Your consistent efforts in demand generation will help you create a broad and loyal fan base over time.

  13. Provides Long-Term Nurturing Content: Your content will attract prospects and nurture them in the long run, keeping your brand top-of-mind.

With these benefits, it’s evident that demand generation is a pivotal strategy for B2B businesses aiming for sustainable growth.

What is the buyer's journey?

In its simplest form, the buyer’s journey is the stages your prospects go before purchasing. These can be identified as awareness, consideration, and decision in their simplest form.

In Figure 3 we see the traditional buyer journey.

Awareness (Informational intent)

Most of your potential buyers will fall into this category. In this stage of the buyer’s journey, your buyer is becoming problem-aware.

Buyers do this by realizing their problem and how your service can solve it. Buyers are most likely entering search terms into Google to improve their understanding.

For example, As a cloud storage provider who solves the problem of data storage and backup for businesses, expect buyers to enter search terms like:

“Why is my company’s data storage inefficient?” or “How to improve data backup and retrieval?”

Your buyer seeks specific information to reach their goals in this phase of your buyer’s journey. It makes creating engaging content in articles, graphics, or videos all the more critical at this stage. You aim to offer your expertise on the problem and relate it to your product or service simultaneously. It will allow you to capture the attention of your target market, which is not immediately considering your solution but is becoming problem-aware

Consideration (informational intent)

This is the phase of the buyer’s journey where your buyer has fully realized that:

  1. They have a problem;

  2. There is a better way of moving forward;

  3. They should consider the options to find the best solution.

In this phase of the buyer’s journey, your buyer will most likely enter search terms like “Should I use pesticides or pluck the weeds myself?”

However, understand that they’re not directly considering your service. They have a good idea that your product or service may be a route to achieving their goals.

This is also the phase where you might want to create informative content like a blog post or infographic titled: “The Top 10 Benefits of Using Pesticides vs. Plucking Weeds”.

Decision (Transactional intent)

In this third phase of the buyer’s journey, your buyer has decided on the best path forward but is now deciding which vendor to use. This is the home stretch of the purchasing process. The good news is that your buyers are considering companies with similar products or services and pricing. Simultaneously, they’re also reviewing each company’s reputation. This is where your content should stand out from the competition.

Buying is the combination of two different human activities: learning and deciding. We already know a lot about how humans learn. This includes how they apply that learning to make decisions and take action. It’s called the knowledge funnel or the buyer’s journey.

Here at Profitsprofits. co, we prefer to view the buyer’s journey like this.

In Figure 4, we observe the buyer's journey depicted by B2B Growth Implementation. This journey is integrated with market assumptions, allocating a specific percentage of your Total Addressable Market (TAM) to each stage of the buyer's journey. This integration allows for further segmentation of target niches and marketing efforts.

In Figure 4, we have broken the buyer’s journey into four categories.

Not problem aware (roughly 60% of your target market)

These people are unaware of the problem and may not fully understand the pain symptoms. Typically, your most significant niche segment will fit into this category, so we will assume that this is 60% of your market.

Pros to marketing to prospects who are not problem aware:

  • Advertising costs will be much cheaper as there is typically much less or no competition.

  • If you turn a prospect into a fan, brand loyalty will increase, as you were the first company to do so.

Cons to marketing to people not problem aware:

  • It requires more effort to educate and inform them about the problem.

  • The conversion rate might be lower since they might not see the immediate need for your solution.

  • Before introducing your solution, You must make them aware of the situation in longer sales cycles.

Problem-aware (roughly 20% of your target market, but it could be higher)

Pros to marketing to problem-aware prospects:

  • They are more likely to be receptive to your marketing messages since they actively seek a solution.

  • Faster sales cycles as they already know the problem and need the right solution.

How do you structure your sales funnel to best utilize buyers' journey knowledge?

Now, we must understand different types of content and how they are used in the sales funnel. Typically, you can find two types of intent behind content:

  1. Informational Intent – Audience members consume content as part of their research or interests.

  2. Transactional Intent – Audience members act to complete a transaction.

The following graphic highlights how these two types of intent work when you place them within the sales funnel.

In figure 5 we see how intent is used within the simple buyers journey.

Content Archetypes

Each B2B post will likely fall into one of these four categories.

In figure 6 we see four different content archetypes as coined by Rose & C Johnson in 2015 in the book “Experiences, the 7th Era of Marketing”

These archetypes can be combined with how audiences consume content

  1. Informational intent: Poet, Professor, and Preacher

  2. Transactional intent: Promoter (and, at times, Preache

Where to place archetypes in the funnel

In figure 7, we see how archetypes are used within the sales funnel.

These archetypes, rooted in the intent of the content, provide a framework for marketers to craft messages that resonate deeply with their audience. Let’s delve into these archetypes, focusing on informational and transactional intent.

Informational Intent: The Three Ps

When your audience seeks information, they’re looking to learn, be inspired, or be guided. This is where the three Ps come into play:

Poet :

  • Role: The storyteller.

  • Objective: To inspire and captivate.

  • Content Examples: Narratives, brand stories, and inspirational anecdotes.

  • Why It Works: Stories have always been a powerful medium to connect and engage. They evoke emotions, making the message memorable.


  • Role: The educator.

  • Objective: To inform and enlighten.

  • Content Examples: How-to guides, tutorials, and informative articles.

  • Why It Works: People are always looking to learn, and providing valuable information positions your brand as an authority in the field.


  • Role: The motivator.

  • Objective: To persuade and influence.

  • Content Examples: Thought leadership articles, opinion pieces, and manifestos.

  • Why It Works: Sometimes, audiences need a push. A preacher’s content ignites passion and drives action.

Transactional Intent: The Promoter and the Preacher

When the audience’s intent is transactional, they want to make a decision, often a purchase. Here, the content should drive action:


  • Role: The salesperson.

  • Objective: To convince and convert.

  • Content Examples: Product descriptions, sales pitches, and promotional offers.

  • Why It Works: When someone is on the verge of a decision, the right promotional content can tip the scales in your favor.

Preacher (again):

  • Role: The advocate.

  • Objective: To endorse and advocate.

  • Content Examples: Testimonials, case studies, and reviews.

  • Why It Works: Sometimes, audiences need reassurance. Hearing positive experiences from others can be the final nudge they need.

In Conclusion

By understanding and leveraging these content archetypes based on the intent of the audience, marketers can craft messages that not only resonate but also drive desired actions. Whether you’re looking to inform, inspire, or influence, there’s an archetype to guide your content strategy.

How does Market Sophistication tie in to The Buyers Journey?

Market sophistication refers to the level of development and complexity within a particular market or industry. It assesses how mature and advanced a market has become in terms of products, services, competition, consumer knowledge, and marketing strategies. Market sophistication can vary widely from one industry to another and can change over time. Below we break down different levels of market sophistication:

  • First in the Market – No Competition: When you’re the pioneering company in a market, there’s no one else doing what you do. You can make broad claims about your offerings without customers having anything to compare them to, making it challenging for them to verify your statements.

  • Second in the Market – Some Familiarity: At this stage, there’s some awareness of your competitors. To stand out, you must emphasize what sets you apart from the competition and explain why you’re the better choice.

  • The Third Stage – Established Competition: In this phase, your competitors have already established why they’re better. Now, you not only need to showcase your superiority but also provide clear reasons why that’s the case. For example, you might highlight that your email automation tool achieves higher deliverability rates due to a unique XYZ process. Prospects at this level may have previous experience with similar solutions, requiring more detailed explanations to gain their trust.

  • The Fourth Stage – Product Focus: At this stage, potential buyers are interested in the concrete attributes of your product, not just promises. They may seek trials or free versions to witness your product in action before making a decision. Selling the vision or roadmap becomes less effective, and your sales demo and product marketing must impress and convince them.

  • The Fifth Stage – Informed Buyers: Here, prospects are extremely knowledgeable. They’ve seen numerous demos, understand the market dynamics, and have informed opinions on the best options. Interestingly, you return to emphasizing softer factors like understanding your audience and providing superior experiences. While technical information remains crucial, your brand message and unique offerings may once again be the key differentiators. For instance, all the tools may seem similar, but one company’s exceptional conference might significantly enhance the customer’s professional growth.

It’s important to be aware of the different levels of market sophistication so you can craft sales letters and marketing messages that strike a nerve with your prospects.

This is another reason why it’s important to niche down, because there is less competition, your more likely to find prospects in the first and second stages of market sophistication and you’re able to craft marketing messages that resonate higher.

How does the sales letter tie into demand generation?

In the world of B2B marketing, demand generation is the cornerstone of a successful sales strategy. But how does the age-old tactic of the sales letter fit into this modern landscape? Let’s dive in.

What is a sales letter?

A sales letter is a written communication to persuade a potential customer to purchase a product or service. It’s designed to capture the reader’s attention, build interest, overcome common objections and prompt action. In essence, a sales letter is a one-way conversation that presents an argument for why the reader should choose a particular product or service. The best sales letters can take prospects from TOFU to BOFU in one sitting.

Every company should have a sales letter, whether B2B or B2C. The sales letter ensures that everybody in the business is on the same page or “singing from the same hymn sheet”. Any changes in the product or service strategy or tactics should immediately be reflected in the master sales letter. A well-written sales letter will include all elements required for the core sales argument.

All content and assets are derived from the core sales letter such as the website, landing pages, sales decks, webinars, and email copy. We advise taking a top-down approach to launching a new offer. First, write the sales letter. Then, create the sales assets.

By breaking down the company’s offering into the elements required for the sales letter, companies will gain clarity on the weak parts of the offer or elements they are missing. Using the Productprofits sales letter framework, companies can create strong sales arguments that convert prospects from TOFU to BOFU.

History of sales letters

Sales letters have been around for centuries, long before the advent of digital marketing. They were the primary method businesses used to reach potential customers, especially when launching new products or services. In the pre-internet era, sales letters were often mailed to prospective clients or handed out in person. Customers would send their cheques along with a code so marketers could track which sales letters were effective and which weren’t. Over the centuries, a winning sales letter formula was developed.

“Seek wisdom from the old masters, for in their timeless lessons lie the secrets that the new often overlook.”

With the rise of email marketing, the sales letter transitioned to the digital realm, but its core principles remained the same.

Steps to Build Your B2B Demand Generation Strategy

Step #1 – Create a feedback loop from sales to product and marketing

The first step in building a successful B2B demand generation strategy is to create a feedback loop between sales, product, and marketing. The idea is to combine your goals across content creation and the core message and ensure it is relevant to “your” target audience. Meet with sales regularly to learn about their pipeline and challenges.

In figure 8 we see an example of all sales activity being recorded in slack in real time. All sales conversations should be automatically uploaded to a shared channel so the business can see what is happening on the front lines in real-time.

Figure 9 shows how you should position your sales and marketing approach

Step #2 - Segment Market Feedback into the Buyer Journey

Once you collect feedback from sales, products, and customers, it’s a matter of segmenting it into the buyer journey.

The buyer journey is divided into three stages: awareness, consideration, and decision. At the awareness stage, buyers are just starting to learn about their problem and the potential solutions. In review, buyers are evaluating different solutions and comparing vendors. At the decision phase, buyers are ready to buy.

Step #3 - Create a compelling thesis and Blackhole content

Once you understand the buyer journey, you can create a compelling thesis and black hole content. This content is precious to your target audience, and they don’t mind giving you their contact information in exchange for it. Typically, it is gated content like eBooks, whitepapers, and case studies.

What is black hole content?

“Black Hole Content” stands out as a powerful gravitational force, attracting audiences and captivating their attention. Much like a cosmic black hole that draws everything into its center, black hole content is so compelling and valuable that it attracts readers, viewers, or listeners and keeps them engaged. It’s content that addresses the core needs, questions, and interests of its target audience, offering insights or solutions that are hard to find elsewhere. When executed correctly, black-hole content establishes a brand’s authority and expertise and creates a loyal following, turning casual visitors into dedicated fans and customers.

Step #4- Decide where content should be used at each step of the funnel

Once you create your black hole content, decide where to use it in your funnel to guide your target audience through their buying journey effectively. The growth marketer or strategist should determine this so you can equip your SDRs with the right content.

Step #5 - Build your content toolbox and empower your SDRs

After creating your content, you should build the content toolbox for the SDRs. Separate the content on where and why it should be used so your SDRs do not have to figure things out independently. SDRs will cherry pick from pre-templated emails and content to warm up prospects based on where the prospect is identified in their buyer’s journey.

Step #6 - Distribute your content using the 80/20 rule

After creating your content, you should build the content toolbox for the SDRs. Separate the content on where and why it should be used so your SDRs do not have to figure things out independently. SDRs will cherry pick from pre-templated emails and content to warm up prospects based on where the prospect is identified in their buyer’s journey.

Figure 9 shows how you should position your sales and marketing approach
