Rethinking Prospecting: Freeing Up the Sales Force for Selling

Manage webcast
Yori Nelken, CEO, Leadspace
Most sales reps spend less than half of their time actually selling (McKinsey , 2011).

In our connected world customers are leaving digital fingerprints in LinkedIn, Facebook and other social networks. They tweet, blog and share content. Even those who are not active online are being mentioned by friends and colleagues.

However, many sales and marketing organizations still rely on traditional, aging tools to find their customers.

New technologies enable you to hone in on high-quality prospects based on what they do, the products they use, their skills and more. This translates into a flow of new leads delivered directly into your CRM when you need them. It also means improved sales efficiency and better closing ratios.

Yori Nelken, CEO at Leadspace, presents the new world of sales and marketing, and demonstrates the innovative intelligence tools that take sales prospecting to a whole new level.

  • Demand generation teams now have access to more data on customers and prospects than ever before. Using predictive analytics, you can quickly turn mountains of data into high converting campaigns for each stage of the buyer’s journey.

    Watch this Demand Gen Report webinar on-demand to learn how predictive analytics can provide marketers with a new weapon for battling the data deluge. This Lead Life Cycle session hosted by Lattice CMO Brian Kardon covers how to:

    * Use predictive scoring at every stage of the funnel;
    * Prioritize inbound demand; and
    * Spot cross-sell and up-sell opportunities.
  • In 2007, a CMO Council study tracked how senior marketers were embracing the customer in real-time, personalized engagements. Were we realizing the goal of “right message, right time, right channel” in our communications? In the study, 47 percent of marketing respondents felt they did not have a full view into the profitability of a customer, including access to customer lifetime value insights. 60 percent predicted personalization as a key route to maximize customer revenue, but the majority indicated they lacked the metrics needed to effectively leverage data to personalize experiences.
    Eight years later, many marketers feel they are in the same position as they struggle to optimize the customer journey using real-time insights and intelligence that enable them to craft robust customer experiences where revenue – not engagement metrics, like clicks or views- is the goal.
    While marketers still look to power experiences with personalization and relevance, customers now have different needs. Service expectations—from self-service to always-available personal or face-to-face service—rapidly increase as customers are not willing to wait for resolutions to issues. Our customers have new and more compelling options from disruptors. Despite years of loyalty building, customers are more willing to leave a brand in favor of experiences and service options that deprioritize pricing and promotions. Customers now demand to be known and heard.
    To address some of these issues and better understand how real-time marketing decisions are directly impacting customer engagement in this age of “un-marketing,” the CMO Council, in partnership with Pegasystems, will present a strategic overview of how marketers are feeding the always-on marketing brain. Gone are the strategies that simply look to maximize campaign engagements as they are being replaced by customer journeys that traverse acquisition, retention and advocacy to maximize customer lifetime value.
