Turkey Day 2015

5 reasons to be thankful as Inside Sales reps

It’s almost that time of year around our American office, and you’re probably just like us, getting ready to go over the hills and through the woods to Grandmother’s house! Before we leave to go carve some turkey, we’ve put together a list of what we’re thankful for as Inside Sales reps.

Thanksgiving Inside sales

1. Closing deals while wearing pajamas
Just like you, as Inside Sales reps we do almost all communication with prospects via our computers and tablets. This holiday season when it’s getting cold out, we’re thankful that the inside sales market lets us work from home from time to time and stay comfy in a nice pair of footie pajamas.

2. Online tools, giving us more time for shopping & cooking
We’re always busy following up with warm leads! It’s a good thing we use platforms and tools (like Fileboard) which show us content and prospect engagement scores. We learn which leads to talk to right now and which messages resonate best, saving us time so we can go get our Thanksgiving shopping done before the big day. If your team is still wasting their time following up with uninterested prospects, try Fileboard out now; otherwise you might have to order your turkey from Amazon.

3. Avoiding the travel rush
Going home for the holidays inevitably means traveling, whether its with planes, trains, or automobiles. Everyone knows how famously ugly this season of traveling can get. Luckily you’re an Inside Sales pro, so think about leaving the weekend before, and write those email campaigns from the comfort of Dad’s rocking chair in front of the fireplace.

4. A roof over our heads, both at home and work
We’re thankful for what we have, be it friends, family, our homes or our jobs. This Thanksgiving, take time to consider everyone and everything to be thankful for in your life.

5. Turkey!
Last but not least, we’re thankful for the delicious bird of the occasion! Not to mention the stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and pumpkin pie! This meal is enjoyed best with the ones you love.
