Living in an Age of the Empowered Buyer Requires a Fresh Approach to Prospecting

Posted by Dean Moothart

July 26, 2019

Outbound prospecting for new business has always been a bit of a numbers game. Years ago, when I first started as a Sales Development Rep, the formula was simple. If you made 100 phone calls, you could expect 10 appointments, and at least 1 of those prospects would turn into a client. The numbers would vary from industry to industry and market to market, but that was the standard everyone was shooting for.

Outbound prospecting is still a numbers game today. Unfortunately, the numbers are just a lot bigger. It requires more phone calls and more emails than ever before to get fewer responses, fewer appointments, and fewer clients. Why is it so hard? What’s changed?

5 Benefits of Sales Enablement and a Sales Playbook

Posted by Kurt Sima

July 22, 2019

Most managers and sellers have experienced this:

  • A seller is moving a new business prospect through the sales process.
  • All signs are positive.
  • The prospect goes silent, and will not respond to email, phone calls, letters, or stop-ins.
  • The seller goes to his/her manager and asks for advice.
  • The manager spends time listening to the seller, conducting diagnostic work, and providing advice to the seller (what to do to restart the stalled sale).

On the surface, this sounds like a good system, but in reality, it is not. Here’s why:

  • Managers work with multiple sellers—doing this for many sellers takes up a great deal of time and is often redundant (same problem… same solution).
  • Sellers might not have easy or timely access to their managers—this delays the sales process and allows the sale to get further off track.

June 21, 2019

Sometimes when you generate leads via inbound marketing, you can get a lot of information about your prospects and leads when they fill out a lead capture form. It really depends, though, on what you're willing to ask.

You can ask things like name, phone number, email, company name, industry, revenue, and more. There's a lot of different variables you can ask for.

The tricky part is, when you ask for too much information, you might limit the number of people that are willing to provide all of that to you. Consequently, this might limit the number of leads you could generate.
