11 B2B business website service page examples, how long it really takes to plan a successful virtual event, and your ultimate uploading to YouTube checklist ...this is THE LATEST!

🔥 Hot off the presses

 SCALING UP IS TODAY! Join us at HIGH NOON (Eastern) for Scaling Up Your Digital Sales and Marketing, a half-day live virtual event for business leaders looking to take their digital sales and marketing to the next level. (It's free!)

At noon today (eastern), our Scaling Up Your Digital Sales and Marketing virtual event kicks off, with close to 2,000 registrants... and still climbing, apparently, as we enter the final countdown.

Some of y'all are procrastinators, you know that? And I don't mean that as a negative.

Much like napping and lighting fall scented candles in the summertime to upset my more seasonally appropriate friends, I consider procrastination to be a sport — nay, an art form. So, go ahead. Register for Scaling Up for free at the 11th hour... I won't judge you.

Anyway! Saying a lot time, talent, and effort is required to plan and execute a memorable, super successful virtual event is like saying you need to have at least some serviceable hammering skills — or least knowledge of what a hammer is — in order to build a house. 

So, trust me when I say Stephanie, Kristen, and Connor are absolute virtual event all-stars. (If you don't believe me, check out the FREE IMPACT+ archive of all the Digital Sales & Marketing Day and Virtual Selling Summit session recordings. Yes, really, it's free.) 

With that in mind, and in honor of it being the more chaotic virtual event equivalent of Christmas Eve, I asked them to tell me in GIF FORM ONLY how they're feeling as we get ready to kick-off Scaling Up...

I agree. Like the calm before the storm, Connor. It's suspiciously quiet. 👀

If Stephanie is stoked, we all should be ecstatic. It's gonna be a good day!

pumped-kristen

If The Dude is feeling optimistic, so am I. He's very calming in that way.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to change into my finest virtual event athleisurewear outfit before the clock strikes 12. I've got to look my very best for those virtual Q&A sessions. 😘

👉 "We know our service pages on our website are important, but what should they look like and include?" (6-minute read)

Your website service pages are the lifeblood of your company's online presence. Their sole purpose is sell your ideal buyers on the fact that you understand their precise goals, needs, and unique challenges, and that you are the service provider best suited to help them. That means not only your design needs to be spot on, so does your messaging. On top of that, you need to make sure you differentiate your brand from your competitors. Whew! That's a lot! Thankfully IMPACT Creative Lead Christine Austin is here to save the day with a deep-dive into 11 world-class examples of B2B website service pages and what you should learn from each of them.
