Company Information Is the Key to an Optimal Sales Process

Sell. More. Faster. That’s the ultimate goal of any sales organization. In practice, this means round-the-clock pressure for salespeople to hit their quota, close more deals, and increase revenue. Salespeople are no strangers to stress.

But if stress starts to escalate out of control, and sales targets seem as challenging as climbing an eight-thousander without supplemental oxygen, you need to re-examine your sales process and figure out the stages you can tweak to boost productivity.

B2B Sales Trends 2020

With the end of the year approaching, we’re continuing tradition and predicting the coming year’s most important trends affecting B2B sales.

Universities have introduced sales courses in their curriculum, and talented salespeople are entering the job market more than ever before.

ICP vs. Buyer Persona: How They Help Get in Front of the Right Buyer

Across industries, salespeople lose between 60 and 90 percent of their potential deals after the first contact. The reason for the big drop-off after the prospecting stage is that many companies still reach out to anyone who loosely sounds like they’d be interested in their offering. It’s far more efficient to only reach out to prospects who fit your solution and have a need for it.

Ensuring that you focus your sales and marketing efforts on the right companies, and the right people within these businesses is never easy. However, one thing is for certain: it’s even harder if you haven’t defined your ideal customer profile and buyer persona—the peanut butter and jelly of your sales process.

Data Cleaning: What It Is and Why Your CRM Needs It

A common cause of death among salespeople and marketing professionals is death by quicksand. Figuratively speaking, of course.

It's an understatement to say that there's no shortage of information on pretty much any company in the world today. However, as we all know–quality beats quantity almost every time.

To draw reliable insights from company data and subsequently boost sales performance, salespeople must a) have easy access to the data most relevant to them, and b) be sure that the data they're acting on is accurate and up to date. This is why data enrichment and data cleaning has come to play a central role in today's data-driven sales world.

10 Ways Company Data Elevates Your Sales Prospecting Process

In today's hyper-competitive business landscape, a canned sales pitch is more likely to lead to the person on the other side of the line hanging up on you mid-sentence than an encouraging "please, tell me more."

Company data is the solution to fixing poorly targeted sales efforts. When you only connect with companies when there's a data-driven reason to do so, and tailor your messaging according to the prospect’s situation and needs, you'll significantly improve your hit rate in every step of the sales process.

What is Business to Business Sales: Definition, Strategy and Trends

It’s just selling, isn’t it? I’m sure you’ve heard this question a few times after you’ve mentioned you work in business to business sales. Such an assumption makes your eyes roll because business-to-business sales, more commonly known as B2B sales, is a tough field in which salespeople face demanding professional buyers and overzealous decision‑makers.

Yes, business to business sales is just that, sales from one business entity to another, and therefore, requires persuasive communication and strong negotiation skills. However, mastering business-to-business sales is much more than just selling. Due to the complex scope and scale of the business-to-business model, salespeople must achieve a thorough understanding of a prospect’s needs, so they can adopt a consultative role.

Because the way people buy has changed, this is the right moment to review what makes business-to-business selling different, and how technology is changing this way of doing sales.
