The quick adoption of technology in a very digital era helps service companies drive more leads, the result? More B2C and B2B sales!
B2B buyers are 70% through their buying process before connecting with a business. As a result, service-based suppliers shift to a digital, data-driven sales approach. Understanding your buyer's needs and approaching their issues early in the sales process will allow businesses to fill in these gaps with valuable content directly related to the industry pain-points long before the sales conversation happens. Being top of mind for your audience will help them gain confidence in buying. So the question is, how do you do this? Technology.
Having access to a companywide CRM will help your sales and marketing develop a more direct sales process early in the buying process, generally without your lead even knowing it. Based on a recent survey completed by Vantage Point Performance and the Sales Management Association, 44% of business executives and owners feel their company is ineffective in managing their sales pipelines. If your organization only focuses on the last 30% of the buying process, you are late to the game.
Having an effective CRM in place drives statistics and allows businesses to develop a sales and marketing strategy around data. As a result, you will save time and resources by being more efficient, utilizing better time management, process automation, real-time data to understand your pipeline, and clear transparency across all departments, especially sales and marketing.
And don't forget commission calculators! Money is a massive motivator in any sales and marketing role. Providing a straightforward, transparent approach to your commission model to users will drive sales. Painting an easy to read if this, then that image will drive your commission-based roles to produce more results. Coupled with an effective CRM will motivate your sales and marketing team to know when a business is on the verge of a possible decision. Data willfully allows them to see when the time is just right to nurture a lead, not too early, but not too late.
