What is a Capabilities Deck?
A capabilities deck is a marketing tool designed to showcase your agency’s abilities and highlight how you can benefit your potential client. Commonly used for B2B sales, capabilities presentations can demonstrate to prospective clients why your agency is the ideal fit and help close deals faster.
Before developing your capabilities deck, start by clearly defining and understanding your audience and their needs. This will allow you to determine what information to include and how best present it, while simultaneously building an adaptable skeleton for future prospects.
Kick-start your capabilities deck by providing an overview of your agency and an explanation of its services, followed by a description of any past client work you may have completed – this can show that you know exactly what work your agency does as well as showing that past work you did has provided results. Be sure to include sample work examples so clients can see examples of past client projects completed. Also ensure a concise yet clear explanation of work completed and results realized is included as part of this presentation.
As part of your agency’s specialty, describe your process and how it enables it to deliver on promises. This can set yourself apart from other agencies by showing that your operation is organized and efficient. Finally, include a short list of the skills and expertise specific to your agency’s area of specialization.
Once your agency and capabilities have been presented, the next step should be case studies and testimonials. This is an opportunity to showcase past client work that you have completed to meet or surpass their expectations, so when selecting testimonials for your capabilities deck prioritize quality over quantity. When selecting testimonials be sure they reflect directly on projects completed as well as any impactful effects your agency had on the client’s business.
End your capabilities deck with an individual pitch tailored specifically to the prospective client, which can demonstrate that you’re truly committed to working together and taking time to learn about their business and needs. This approach will foster trust between parties involved that could ultimately lead to long-term success for all involved.
How to Create a Capabilities Deck
An agency capabilities deck is an effective way of highlighting its strengths and expertise to potential clients or customers. When presented in a professional manner, this tool will have lasting impressions upon any viewer who views it.
Start by thinking about who you want your capability deck to reach: Your ideal client. Consider their individual goals and needs when planning its content to better understand which pieces of information need to be shared with them and in what form.
Make sure that your capabilities deck contains case studies that showcase your past successes, whether these be campaigns you have worked on or results achieved for previous clients. This provides the ideal opportunity for you to demonstrate your expertise and demonstrate that you are an essential partner helping clients meet their business objectives.
Your capabilities deck should also include an outline of all of the services your agency offers, in a short and descriptive way. This way, when potential clients visit, they’ll have a better idea of what you have to offer them.
As your agency provides unique benefits, such as years of experience or special touches not provided by other agencies, it’s also important to include this section on how they will add to the client’s marketing initiatives.
Once your marketing agency has showcased its strengths and expertise, wrap the deck up with a call to action that encourages potential clients to get in touch with you for additional information or schedule a consultation session. Make sure your contact details can easily be seen by potential clients so they can reach out when ready.
Capabilities decks may seem complex to create, but with a proper approach they can become an invaluable tool in winning over your ideal clients and landing your next marketing campaign. A quality capability deck will set your organization apart from its competition and can set off its marketing efforts like never before.
What to Include in a Capabilities Deck
An agency’s capabilities deck is an opportunity for them to demonstrate what they can offer clients. A good presentation should include examples of client work, case studies and testimonials as well as a list of services your agency provides and a brief description for each service offered. The purpose is to generate demand while showing your agency can meet it effectively.
Though a capabilities deck may not be necessary for every marketing project, it can be especially useful for high-value endeavors that require significant research and planning. Such endeavors typically target B2B businesses seeking help to expand and reach their goals – when this occurs, an in-depth capability deck can give clients confidence that your agency is their go-to choice for partnering.
Capabilities presentations are an excellent way to set your agency apart from its rivals. Today’s buyers are feeling overwhelmed with information, so an extended pitch could turn buyers off entirely. By keeping client needs at the center of your presentation, you can set yourself apart and ensure your potential client remains engaged throughout your presentation.
The first slide should provide a short company or agency overview. This will set the context for the remainder of your presentation and help potential clients better understand how your agency can assist them with meeting their goals. Although brief, it should create an optimistic outlook to move forward with further conversation.
Showcase your agency’s past success by including case studies of past clients that have worked with you. Explain how you helped each achieve their goals and any metrics that demonstrate this success; for instance, if you assisted a brand increase their social media presence by 20% this should be highlighted in your case study.
Add your contact details on the final slide of your deck for ease of contact and to allow any potential clients to continue the conversation if any additional questions arise.
How to Use a Capabilities Deck
An effective capabilities deck can be an invaluable resource for your marketing agency. It serves to showcase its unique skill set while showing clients how you can help them meet their business goals. While you should tailor each capabilities deck specifically to each prospect, certain elements must remain constant to effectively highlight your agency’s capabilities.
Beginning your presentation by providing a very brief agency or company overview. Include key details like your years in business, qualifications of team members, awards received or accolades earned – this will give your prospect an understanding of who you are as an agency and what differentiates you from competitors.
Start by sharing your most impressive work, whether that be case studies and/or client testimonials that highlight your agency’s ability to bring results for its clients. Be sure to provide clear and detailed information about each project including challenges faced, strategies employed, metrics used for success evaluation and how your work enhanced client bottom lines.
Resolve to end your capabilities deck with an effective call to action. Whether this means providing a contact form to request more information, or listing all the steps involved in working together, this final slide should give your prospect all of the data necessary to make an informed decision.
Capabilities presentations are essential for marketing agencies who operate under a business-to-business (B2B) model or provide various forms of creative services to clients. A professionally delivered capabilities deck can act as an essential sales tool, helping close deals with prospects and driving revenue for your agency.
