If your sales team isn’t powered by the latest advanced sales acceleration technology, you are leaving millions of dollars on the table, and overspending by millions of dollars on B and C players.
Let’s peel this back. Account Executives at ConnectAndSell, using Advanced Sales Acceleration of course, are required to have 57 sales conversations/week (a mere 2 hours of call time per day, giving them 6 hours to do proposals, sales conversations, and other things sales people do).
57 conversations sounds like what a typical rep would do in a week, right? WRONG! 57 conversations means 1,311 dials (23 dials = 1 sales conversation in 2015 for most b2b sellers). A “typical” Sales Rep in 2015 makes around 15 – 25 dials/day and might have 1 sales conversation/day. The other “conversations” are going on in email! Last I checked, email isn’t the best form of communication.
A company doesn’t just scale by accident. It takes planning, and then relentless execution. It’s a manufacturing line after all! Leads are manufactured, passed to sales, sales calls them, and then a complete conversion process is executed from lead to MQL to SQL to opp to closed/won deal.
So why do sales leaders leave this to chance, and not have dashboard to track: Dials/Conversations/Meetings/Exec Meetings/Pipeline/ and Closed/Won Deals? ANSWER: Because until now, tracking (and enabling) more dials and more conversations has been difficult.
If your Reps aren’t producing at a minimum 57 conversations/week, and they are selling in b2b, stop what you’re doing and take a look around. Companies like TopOpps get it. Jim Eberlin, their CEO gets it. Amy Kohl, their VP of Marketing gets it.
