The ‘Intelligent’ Sales Approach
Sales intelligence, for the uninitiated, is the process of collecting relevant data to gain in-depth insights about your prospective and existing customers – to better focus your pitch, team strategy, target account leads, and conversions. Simply put, it helps you understand your customer better. The more you know about your prospect, the easier it is to create a message that really resonates with them.
In the long run, tailored campaigns can also dramatically increase engagement value, leading to a better customer experience and of course, more sales.
Identify What You Need
To get started, figure out what you need first. Sales intelligence tools curate data in myriad different ways. Some of these include:
– Identifying people who are likely to be interested in your product, so you don’t waste time on people who are not.
– Mining online resources to provide insights on tools, products, or topics that your prospect is keen on.
– Platforms to reach decision-makers at crucial points to close a deal.
