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.
Selecting the right cadence is essential for successful business development. Too many attempts in a short period can butcher your brand and come off as pestering. Not enough attempts, then you can miss opportunities due to not having the professional persistence to earn the conversation. On average, it can take over nine calls before making contact so having a call cadence that increases responses is essential to limiting the chase. 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.

The best sales teams have learned that to make it in this buying environment, discovery is critical. Often, companies have a sales pitch or product demo lined up for the first meeting with their potential buyer. This is a massive (and common) mistake.
The first thing your buyer needs to know about your company is that you can be trusted. Beyond that, once you have established a relationship with the buyer you have the chance to guide him through the sales cycle.
