According to HubSpot, 60% of B2B buyers want to connect with sales during the consideration stage – after they have researched and evaluated the options on the market.
As part of your sales enablement strategy, it is important for your team to understand and utilize all the tools at their disposal. Consistently reflecting on your buyer’s journey and adapting your sales approach accordingly can be a great way to capture leads at the right time.
Now more than ever, buyers are conducting more research to inform their purchases. With an increasing amount of content and purchase options available, the typical B2B buyer’s journey has gradually begun to resemble B2C purchase paths. Even before the pandemic took hold, 51% of sales and marketing professionals claim that their buyers are conducting more research over the past 18 months than previously, according to Kuno Creative.
Therefore, aligning sales processes with your buyer’s journey could yield better results from SQLs if your sales team acts at the right time. To facilitate this, consider utilizing website analytic tools to gain visibility on who is visiting your website, how many times they have visited, where they have been looking, and how long for. This will enable you to identify where a lead may be in your sales funnel – allowing your sales team to make contact at the perfect time.
However, for a sales team to be efficient in this, they have to first be proficient with your current sales strategy. To facilitate a sales team that is confident in what they are selling, they’ll need quality content that they can rely on. Ensuring that your sales and marketing teams are aligned with content generation will ensure this.
Organizations that utilize sales content analytics are more effective in closing deals faster. Mid to large-size organizations can waste up to $3 million annually due to the inefficient management of sales content, according to Seismic.
It’s always worth considering if your sales team has all the right tools to enable their sales activity.
