One of the significant concerns to sales leaders is not only the drive to make sales, but also the cost of those sales. The number one cost-savings potential for any sales team is the quality of their leads. Ideally, those road warriors need to focus on qualified leads that are most likely to convert to a customer. We at Call Motivated Sellers are here to fill that gap.
You start with a list of contacts that might meet a specific demographic. Maybe it’s certain types of businesses or people who are most likely to purchase your product or service or shares a common interest. It could be as simple as a general target area in your state or a field rep’s region. A cold calling professional like Call Motivated Sellers will work through that list, identifying who on that list meets your criteria as a sales qualified lead.
The first step is to paint for us a picture of the critical attributes of a qualified lead. Ideally, the sales and marketing teams should work together on this profile before Call Motivated Sellers gets involved, but if you need assistance, we’re happy to give you pointers. You want both teams engaged because they view the customer in entirely different ways. You want them to share and gaining perspective from one another and their direct experience with customers to define that ideal customer profile, otherwise known as the sales qualified lead.
The next step is to score your perfect qualified lead attributes. This score helps your cold calling professional assign the proper weight as they engage in conversation with your lead candidates, determining whether or not they are a sales qualified lead for your sales team to pursue.
We prefer talking points over reading a script. If you have ever been on the receiving end of a scripted conversation, you understand the difference. We value the difference in conversations and how they change from one call to another, just because of the details of the candidate. A top-rate cold calling professional from Call Motivated Sellers turns those talking points into meaningful conversation.
We use talking points as steps in defining sales qualified leads as well as a means to introduce your brand to the customer, along with some easy rebuttals to turn around if we need them. We’re not necessarily selling the contact in a cold call. We are priming them for your sales team to start that relationship with your company. Think of us as providing a soft handoff to your sales team for each qualified lead.
