  • Travel is more time-consuming because of security. Cost has continuously gone up. This is a drain to productivity and profitability.
  • Information must be accessible from anywhere, any time
  • Customers want instant answers that are personalized to them Value-based selling must articulate individualized ROI. The real reason for buying is less about sales person + more about economic value as perceived by customer. ROI needs to be calculated and accepted by customers. That doesn’t require a face to face sales call.
  • In the face of all these changes, the key is to reduce costs in as many ways as possible, while increasing sales effectiveness. There are always three areas to look at—people, process and technology. We’ll cover all three in this presentation.
  • What outside sales reps do: Diagnose specific problems; Create customized solutions; Demos to one or many; Team selling + rally support; Close sales + do follow up There are constraints / limitations with increasing effectiveness of outside sales. Yes, there’s a trend toward more social selling and mobile selling – iPads to show customers more options and accelerate pipeline a little bit. However, once the sales person has a rapport with the customer – have had lunch dinner or office visit – there is less of a need for personal communication, and more of a need for communicating rapidly because world is moving from a delay economy to real-time economy, as we already said. What good does it to have a rep arrive a day late?
  • That’s why many companies are shifting to an inside sales model. Inside sales jobs are growing at a rate 15 times faster than outside sales jobs, according to Vorsight.
  • But old technology has made it very difficult for inside sales reps to be as effective as outside sales reps.
  • Here’s the reason why. Level of interest – When people are leaning forward, there’s a high level of interest. When it’s online, you can’t see they’re leaning back or surfing the web or reading email. Focus – When they are intent and making eye contact, you know they’re paying attention Eye Movement is same thing – When people look away you know they’re distracted. Most of the time, salespeople over-talk, and they lose customer in process. But when they monitor eye movement, they’ll be more focused. They’ll ask questions sooner and collaborate with customer more effectively Indifference – This is when the customer is already tuned out. It’s easy to discern agitation on the phone, but harder to distinguish indifference. Indifference doesn’t show up much in tone of voice, but is easy to see in body language. Easy for people to hang up on salespeople on a call
  • Thanks to new technology, the traditional inside sales role can do all that outside sales reps can do at a fraction of the cost.
  • In today’s digital world, the traditional ways of creating trusting relationships are shifting. 23% buyers trust friend’s posts on Facebook, 12% Twitter Access my tips on PGi.blog.com Linked profile is 7x more likely to be viewed if it has a photo 93% communication is nonverbal – body language, facial expressions, etc. 5. The typical website visitor spends 57 seconds on a text-only website. She’ll spend 6 minutes on a site with video.
  • iMeet sales team story
  • Tell story about the iMeet client that trained their sales people in China very effectively with iMeet. They didn’t have to fly their Chinese reps across the world. Major cost and time savings. Faster onboarding.
