Social selling is more than just a buzzword – it’s a strategy that your sales team can use to increase productivity and generate more qualified leads. In fact, when sales people utilize social media, they can educate and interact with their prospects at different stages of the buying process.
Account based marketing (ABM) is the focus of aligning sales and marketing efforts on the accounts most likely to generate revenue or meet other strategic goals. The process is an approach to qualifying and targeting leads before you market to them.
Sales reps are tasked with establishing relationships with prospects and proving the worth of their product or solution to eventually close the deal. The job of a sales rep requires a lot of communication through phone calls, emails, and demos. Regardless of how long you’ve been working in sales, you can still accidentally say the wrong thing, which can cause a big problem.
In today’s world, prospects expect sales reps to know about their background and company starting from the first conversation. As a sales rep, you should never start a conversation mispronouncing a prospect’s name or send an email spelling it wrong. Asking what their company does is also a huge no-no. Before you pick up the phone or hit send on an email, do your research. You need to know who these people are, what they do, if they’re a decision maker, and as much information about their company that you can gather. Knowing specifics about your prospects allows you to further target your message and sales pitch to their exact needs.
