& 9 Tips to Improve Sales Performance
There has been constant debate over the best method for generating fully qualified leads for sales teams. Some salespeople rely primarily on email, and we’ve noticed a corresponding trend in technology offerings that assist heavily in email functionality. But what about the telephone? At QuotaFactory, we promote picking up the phone rather than relying solely on email.
In order to stay ahead of the competition, you must distance yourself from the status quo. Stop wasting your time reading up on the latest and greatest email templates, best days and times to send emails, and mining for correct email sequences. Let’s start speaking with prospects live on the phone and stop cluttering inboxes, slowing productivity.
We drilled into thousands of our own fully qualified leads to find the truth once and for all. What method is best to connect with more prospective customers and produce qualified leads, phone or email? Our most recent quarterly numbers will provide the facts. Conversations where sales context was gathered during Q1, Q2, and Q3 of 2015 found that the most number of conversations that led to fully qualified leads were obtained via phone rather than email.
