Do you know the market?
Understanding the market does not mean that you need to have your prospect’s credentials like name, title, company name, website and email. You need to understand what your market landscape looks like. You should know how competitors are pitching and positioning themselves. You need to do something different and innovative. Do not always stick to one selling technique. If one technique is not working out for you, opt for another. Know your prospects’ needs and wants and then pitch accordingly.
Go for quality not quantity
Capturing or generating leads needs to be refined. Go for high quality leads, which are in need of what you are selling. Identifying your buyer personas depends upon knowing who you are targeting. For effective lead generation, you must have targeted prospects and be able to educate them on why they need your product. You have to make them realize how your product can help them solve issues they are struggling with.
Sales driven culture
Your company shouldn’t be revolving around the sales closure team. Your emphasis must be on prospecting, which means winning quality leads and finding better prospects. This will help your organization drive more revenue.
Integrate with CRM platform
CRM can be very beneficial and integrating with Salesforce and Hubspot can bring a transparency between sales and marketing. Focus on analytics. This should make your sales teams able to see exactly how your prospects are interacting with the content.
Focus on metrics
Focusing on different data trends will help you make quality decisions and get you the desired results. Each metrics report tells you a different story and paying close attention to your metrics makes you able to know what’s working and what’s not. Ultimately you will achieve what you want.
What your prospect is saying?
Always tell your sales team to listen to what the prospect is saying i.e what they need and want? Remember that and then show them the benefits they will get with your product. How it can help them out on achieving their goals. But remember you have to listen to each and everything they say. Do not just tell them about the features of your products. Build the trust of your product in their minds. Show them the efficiency and benefits of your solution. Be aware of your competitors as the prospect will likely ask questions based on what they know about your competition. You will need to differentiate yourself in a clear and effective way so they find your answers rational and their likelihood of buying your offer increases.
