As you prepare and strategize in the New Year, you may be asking yourself “How do I ensure I hit my sales goals?” Achieving the results you want involves work in many areas – sales, strategy, business partnerships, market development, account management, business expansion, and marketing. As you can see, there are a lot of moving parts.
As the end of the year approaches, you might be wondering about the overall quality of your database. Companies today are looking to sales enablement technologies, analytics, CRM systems and learning technologies to make their sales teams more effective and more efficient. Businesses are considering cutting-edge tools that will make their team better. Something they often don’t spend enough time on that can make the most significant impact on a sales team’s efficiency is data.
Tradeshows are excellent opportunities to meet new customers, start conversations, and build your company’s brand. So, how do you prepare? We break down a vital outreach strategy you should implement before the trade show begins for maximum success. Waiting until the event is often too late and collecting business cards is not an efficient way to get business from tradeshows.
A revealing metric used to measure the success of any email marketing campaign is an email’s click-through rate. Click-throughs from email marketing campaigns are a proven way to increase meaningful sales conversations for your business development team. It is one of the proven ways to increase phone conversations with prospects. Getting better at getting click-throughs can have a direct impact on net new conversations in market.

At NuGrowth Sales as a Service, we have one proven call cadence to increase contact rates, meeting activity, and inbound email responses that decreases the time it takes from call to opportunity.
