In this episode of What’s Wrong With Revenue? we went deep on how the CRM helps your company better orchestrate sales execution, which inevitably helps the sales team drive more revenue.
If you’re considering redoing your sales process, stand in the shoes of your prospects. What do they want and need to get from your reps during your sales interactions?
Then build those steps into your CRM, automate as much as possible, facilitate efficiencies for your reps and provide your reps with tools that help them deliver a consistent story, experience and feeling of safety to ALL your prospects.
Putting your sales process into your CRM is like handing every sales rep a set of instructions and showing them exactly how to follow those instructions.
It might seem basic, but you’d be surprised how many decent-sized companies don’t know exactly what all their sales reps are doing on a day-to-day basis.
CRMs provide unmatched business intelligence to sales reps today, helping them create a remarkable experience for prospects.
With the click of a button, you can find out what content prospects have read, what videos they watched, what pages they visited, how many times they visited those pages, what chats they’ve engaged with on your site and more.
Technology alone rarely solves business challenges. Process improvements solve business challenges, and technology enables those process improvements to be delivered.
If you’re switching CRMs, identity what’s not working in the current system and what you’d like to be different in the new system. Create some use cases that help define what the new experience would feel like.
Also, include at least some of the sales reps in the use case development process and the review of potential CRM systems for consideration.
Involving them in the process in a manageable way will help with acceptance when you’re ready to roll it out to the entire team.
