    Specialist Sales Model VS a Generalist Sales Model , what’s better ?

    Sunday, September 4th, 2016

     

    specialist 1

    90% of all sales people hate cold calling for new business , the other 10% are lying”
    ____________________________
    The best way to have ZERO Sales productivity for your sales team, is to have your quota carrying sales people do ‘Everything’

    __________________________________________________

    So let’s look at some of the B2B Sales facts here :

    ________________________

    It’s takes 9 – 15 attempts to have a meaningful sales conversation with a decision maker on the phone — 85% of the time it goes to voice mail or in a meeting

    ___________________________

    Sales people that have to do “everything” have to

    _____________________________

    Self Generate Leads , Call In-Bound leads , make Outbound Calls, Hunt and Look for the right decision maker …and Book Meetings

    ____________________________

    Sales People have to research all the accounts before they approach them ; get all of the right names , get their ph #’s , get their email address , find out something about their initiatives or objectives going on in their world — Trigger Events

    ________________________________
    This takes 50% of their selling time per month to do this

    __________________________________________________

    — After they have wasted 50% of the month researching new accounts to sell into –Now they proceed to the next stage which is wasting 35% of the rest of the selling time per month sending Out Cold E-mails and Cold Calling new prospects to Book Meetings and Demos
    ________________________________

    researching 1

     ___________________________

    So now we are down to about 15% actual selling time per month with actual prospects, after all of the Hunting, Looking and Researching ….

    __________________________

    80% – 85% of their selling time is wasted doing this every month …
    __________________________________

    Are you deeply satisfied and content with that ?
    ___________________________

    AND the sales statistics that is the most alarming –Sales people spend 50% of their closing time on  prospects that DON’t Convert as with the new accounts that do ….

    ____________________________________________________

    So what this means is — Only 7.5% – 15% of your sales person’s sales time is with prospects that Convert to new customers per month 

    ______________________________________________

    An Idea that is growing 15X faster than a traditional Sales model is the ‘Specialist Sales Model “ Break apart your Sales Roles , hire Outbound New Business Developers who generate qualified leads and Open new accounts and set up
    meetings , Appointments and Demos with High Value accounts

    _______________________________

    –They Pre-Qualify the accounts and Hand the Baton to your account manager.
    _______________________________

    –> Giving your sales people 300% more meetings and Appointments with accounts you’d Dream about ‘Getting In Front of “

    ________________________________________________________

    –> Gaining 300% more ‘Shots on Net or ‘At Bats’

    ___________________________________________________

     

    aaron ross pic 5

    ___________________________________

    Wouldn’t it be much more Productive if you had an Outbound Lead Generation person that did all of this time consuming, non-selling work ..and your Account Managers had 200% – 300% MORE Selling time and Face time ?

    __________________________________________________

                                  “Divide the Labor “

    ______________________________________________

    aaron ross chart 2 pic

    _________________________________________________________

    So now imagine… you had a Top Flight Outbound Sales Developer to take care of the “ground game‘ back end work and get you ‘In the Door” 300% faster.

    And then hand-off ‘Open” leads, Discovery Calls , Snap-shot Web Demos and Meetings to the the sales team.

    sales specialization 1

     

    In 2007  it took an average of 3.68 call attempts to reach a prospect

    _________________________________________

    ...Today in 2016 it takes 9 attempts

    _____________________________________

    — It’s 300% harder to reach top level Decision Makers for a productive selling conversation

    ___________________________________________

    Average sales person makes 2 attempts to reach a prospect then gives up

    _______________________________________________

    Average sales person makes 8 dials per hour and prospects for 6.25 hours to set one appointment

    ___________________________________________________

    Average sales person spends 93 hours to 120 hours a month on the phone trying to get through to set up 12  appointments a month

    _______________________________________________

    50% of all sales go to the first sales person to contact and have a meaningful sales conversation with the prospect

    ___________________________________________

    70% of all purchasers that switched to the new supplier said that 100% of them were initially satisfied and happy with their solution when they were approached ..before they switched

    __________________________________________

    — So the questions begs,  is the Bottom 70% of the market that’s not Looking or not interested worth going after ?
    –> I think so ….

    So just imagine for a moment …. Your sales people over at your company , imagine they didn’t have to waste 80% of their selling time to do all of these selling steps …

    Why Sales-People shouldn’t Prospect, Present and Close Deals end-to-end

    Sunday, August 21st, 2016

    Outbound 1

               “Lead Generation Grows a Business..
           Not Sales People ” 

    _________________

    Why companies that lump all the sales activities, duties and responsibilities to the sales team get 80% less sales results .

    ______________________

    …And why companies that have a “Specialist  Sales model “. Outbound Sales Developers, researching, e-mailing, getting into meaningful sales conversations and Booking Meetings & Demos for the quota carrying Account Managers
    Gain 300% more REACH &

    300% more shots on net

    Outbound 2

    Typically any company that has an average worth of $ 5,000 -$ 10,000 per year of 1 new customer

    ___________

    –Has a Direct Sales approach where they rely on the sales  person ability to get “in Front ‘ of new customers each month and pitch and close new business

    _____________

    You Should be doing Outbound and not relying
    on In-Bound leads to feed the sales team

    _______

    Inbound leads pay the rent, but you can’t scale your business with Inbound – You need a fine tuned “Specialist ” sales model where Openers open the accounts and Closers close new business

    Outbound B2B Prospecting and Cold Calling is Sexy Again…

    Monday, May 18th, 2015

    Outbound and Cold Calling was once in the doghouse for years… Now it’s hotter than ever – minus the brutal cold calling in the raw – because it can Rocket Growth!


    All the buzz for the last 5 years for B2B marketers has been ..Inbound

    Inbound is awesome, we all love inbound leads and people calling us all day. But if you’re dependent on it and waiting for the phone to ring, a referral or an opt-in to blow in through the window, it’s not reliable, consistent to fuel growth

    It doesn’t give your company the ability to profile you’re perfect customer – go out and have conversations with your ideal prospect, build a big dream hit list of people who aren’t calling you. Outbound and Cold Calling 2.0 gives a B2B company  a scalable – consistent – reliable way to grow your business


    Utilizing dedicated outbound lead generation enables very targeted approach to your ideal prospect profile at executive levels.

    In addition a dedicated outbound prospecting division creates a pool, farm team of sorts for the  future closing talent to hire from

    Inbound and Outbound are totally complementary

    –Your inbound strategy is to generate qualified leads for the sales team to follow up on. However it’s not the Holy Grail – especially if you’re selling to the high-level mid-tier markets / The corporate enterprise market

    Many of the inbound leads are too low on the totem pole and have no influence at all,

    With Outbound sales development and using the new Cold Calling 2.0 Super-Power tools like ;

    — Data.com

    — LinkedIn Navigator

    — Predictable Revenue Cold Approach E-mail marketing


    — Sales Loft/ Cadence

    — PRWEB.com


    — YesWare.com

    You can now bring the control back to your driver seat it on your terms it on your agenda, build a dream wish list of accounts and have conversations with them

    With these tools you can now gain incredible market and business intelligence ;

    — Get the decision-makers name,

    —  Their email address,

    — Their direct dial phone #

    — A complete bio on everything about them where they went to school what interest, sports or hobbies they have

    — Trigger Events going in their world

    — Initiatives and Objectives they want to achieve.

    —  Their favorite color skittle’s

    — You can control the  # of employees and staff in the company,

    — The account entry point into the company

    — Get Referred up the “ladder” by Internal Credible Referrals

    — the industries you want to call into, all of the decision-makers names up the supply chain — Create a big pre-researched, prevetted list of potential target accounts.

    I’ve got all the information about the company and of the target accounts I want to have conversations with
    _______________

    “ You can build a Breadcrumb trail of Internal Credible Referrals,  Name Drops & Social Influence…”
    ___________________

    With In-Bound marketing you hope that your content marketing is working that you spread around the social media
    ___________________________


    You hope
    that your SEO and SEM is working
    ____________________


    You hope
    that the right decision makers, in the right companies on your dream wish list will by chance read your content, opt in and subscribe to your lead magnet

    It seems like there’s a lot of Hope going on… And not much control

    It’s undeniable and un-arguable the trade-off you get when you pay $30,000 a year base salary for an outbound dedicated sales developer generating leads and opening the door for your sales team..
    _________________________

    — They will send out 300 to 500 cold outbound referral emails a month
    _______________________

    — which will generate 60 referrals to the right point of contact from the CEO/president
    _____________________________

    —  From these calls and leads you will schedule 20+ demos and high-level discovery calls with top-level decision-makers
    _______________________

    — In addition , your Sales Developer will make about 1200 to 1500 gross amount to Dials a month to have a productive selling conversation with top decision makers
    _______________________________

    From these attempted calls they will produce  another 220 conversations a month – which would book another 20 to 30 appointments and meetings per month

    ______________________________

    There’s a saying I love – “ Do companies really do 80% of their buying research before contacting you?
    ________________________

    Yep
    – along with 9 other vendors and similar suppliers to you !


    Not with Out-Bound …
    ____________________

    We all love it when someone calls us you must also know they’re also calling 5 – 9 other providers they’ve short-listed and researched on Google

    ( like you’re in the hotel bar in Vegas and a really pretty girl comes on to you –)

    You’re really not that special bro….
    ________________________

    My point is that–  with Outbound you can find companies that are not even thinking of change– you can now share some research that’s going on, or trends that are going on in their industry and in their sector …with their exact peer group.
    _____________________________

    Artificially inseminate problems, areas of dissatisfaction, pain and hurt that many other people in their peer group have been experiencing – Engage in some Doubt-Creation — which they may be having as well.
    _________________________


    Share some research and trends that are going on in their World
    , where things are moving to

    And then you say the most effective appointment setting line ever

    “ And hey I don’t want to make any assumptions at this point that there would be a good fit of match .. I was just wondering if you might be Open to some new ideas or options in this area that could –____________________ “

    –Now you can create a vision for them for the future with ideal outcomes that will solve these problems and Take Them to the Promised Land

    “ All with 10 X less competition than inbound leads”

    Hey—— it’s __________ calling I was just on your website researching your company and noticed an awesome press release about some 2015 / 2016 initiatives and objectives that you guys are doing — such as _________ & _________ ..

    If you could just give me 120 seconds on the phone here, I promise I’ll
    earn the rest

    We don’t mind being second at all….

    This is just an exploratory call and quite honestly I don’t know if there could be a good fit or a good match at this point– It’s not a sales call , I never get it right the first time — I just wanted to ask you 3 quick questions to determine if there could be a fit

    “Intelligent Outbound Warm Calling & Permission Based, Social Approach tips”

    Sunday, January 19th, 2014


    “ How to turn Cold Calls into Warm conversations with trigger events, Social connections,Social triggers and gain an ‘internal credible referral’ to get 300% more meetings booked with any company you desire

    1) Groups, Groups & Groups Join 50 LinkedIn groups. What you should do is join five LinkedIn groups and then join another 45 LinkedIn groups where your customers are hanging out and where they are getting information from , where they’re getting their resources from and insights from

    — Offer information that’s meaningful and helpful to your group share information, be a thought leader and he cites the insights to your group, strive to be seen as the subject matter expert in your space

    Join groups to start conversations.

    Moderate a group start a thread

    Do Linked-In– in mail you can in mail 50 people a day on LinkedIn and when you’re in the same group as these people you can get about 80% conversion rate from a conversation or a spammed email to booked meeting

    Point to note -you should try to join groups of 5000 members or less anything like 40,000 or 100,000 members is too many you can’t stand out it’s very difficult

    2) Be Daring, Be different, Be First .

    As Oren Klaff says from http://www.pitchmastery.com The most horrible type of the prospecting call is one that the prospect can predict the end of the call at the beginning.

    This is the problem with most cold calls the prospect can predict the end of the call in the very beginning.— Such as you’re going to say you’re solution or system is the best and you’re the greatest and you’re the leading provider asked for a meeting, that’s predictable… then your prospect is going to retreat or be BORED and reject you ..

    As Oren Klaff  says what really works is

    Novelty-

    Holy noodle ..I can’t believe I caught you in the office … I’m on your web site looking at your picture right now .. Wow with an awesome picture like that I thought you’d be out with your agent signing autographs

    Intrigue – Yea … hey ..I was on your website doing some research on _________ , gathering some data in this are..and I was told to give your VP of I.T. a call..I don’t really know what’s its about …something to do with Cloud , IT or Mobile, Servers stuff –some issues you guys are having .

    Pattern interrupts

    Is your Internet down over there ?  ..Oh it’ seems OK ,..VOIP phones — geee..did you ever have a day when everything went perfect — you know .. . ? —-  I need one of those..

    .. Hey its Murray here with ________ I know your probably really swamped right now ..if we could deliver a solution that could ___________, would I be able to have a 3 minute conversation with you on the calendar this week ?

    Tension

    Humor
    Oh.. John hasn’t worked here  since 2010 — holy noodle ..he still owes me $50 for Lunch …–Hmm…I think he said the company would pay for it.. If you look out the window Im in the white car … yea that’s me — just kidding ..

     

    Hey, who has a focus and attention on subject area.

    Social relevance

    Social name drops and referrals

    Hey it’s Murray here, I just got off the phone with ( Referral) and we were talking about some of your 2014 objectives & initiatives you have on your plate and a few obstacles in the way( things that effect him )

    And I believe you are the resident expert and authority on ( subject area )

    If you have 3 minutes I like to listen to understand more and we just might have some new , innovative ideas and options that can ( price-less answer looking for )

    Mention of second-degree LinkedIn connections

    Mention of LinkedIn groups this

    3) http://www.jobchangealerts.com subscribe to this free service – Every day you get an email sent to you with all the people in your Linked-In network that have changed their careers and Jobs

    Hey John Its Murray here,  congratulations on your new career over at ________, that’s awesome !! Just read on Linked –in that you are running the helm of the ship over at _______, you’re in my network on Linked-in….  …

    4) Aaron Ross who wrote – http://www.predictablerevenue.com The best-selling new book on predictable revenue in 2014

    He believes like we all believe that you should not be cold calling today in this 2014 I would personally say this from an expert who has Built out over 389 Inside sales and Tele-Sales departments in over 43 industries .

    In this day and age with all the social media with http://www.data.com , http://www.linkedin.com,http://www.salesloft.com,,  and all the other sources you can get the personal names and direct phone number and direct email from all of these list sources so you don’t have to cold call in the raw anymore

    A cold call is calling someone you don’t know and is expecting your call people hate being surprised, they hate it, you hate doing it and it sure doesn’t work as good as permission-based Warm calling and intelligent outbound prospecting

    You’re just a ‘Cowboy or plain Dumb not to use these tools today ..

    Aaron’s simple approach came from working at sales force.com in 2003 and he had to cold call and he hated it so what are you did was he came up with this idea that went like this

    5)   He would research in LinkedIn and jigsaw the top top decision-maker in the ‘Target’ company . Then he would send a spam email to the top decision-maker in the company,  the top CEO or president of the company

    No more than 130 characters 3 paragraphs, No Selling in it all.

    He would say stuff like this…

    Hey I’m just trying to see if there’s a fit or a match I don’t want to waste your time I was looking for your help I’m wondering who has the focus or attention on your industry/ subject, maybe you could steer me in that direction ?

    OR

    “ Hey I’m looking for help I’m not sure you know who I should talk to I I don’t know who is in charge of this could you possibly point me in the right direction of the person who’s in charge of________________?

    “ Hey I’m in a looking for help but I’m not sure where to begin… I think I’ve got something really interesting but I don’t know -not certain … Wondering if could you point me in the right direction with the person who had a focus our attention on_____________”

    He would have his business developers in salesforce.com send out 30 of these a day, 150 of these a week,and about 600 per month.

    Out of the 600 spammed emails to the top decision-maker in the company he would get an internal credible referral 54 to 110 times

    9%-18%

    So think about that – 54 – 110 Out of 600 Top level decision makers would respond to a Spammed E-mail asking for help to get pointed in the right direction …

    –Isn’t that Incredible

    Aaron and the Salesforce.com team it till this day today in 2014 uses the exact same process and is a $ 3 billion-dollar company
