Transcript

  • 1. Exit Criteria: Activities That Predict Buyer Behavior M. Jeffrey Hoffman President and CEO MJ Hoffman and Associates @mjhoffman @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 2. Agenda • MQL’s vs “good” sales leads…. • Language Redefined • The role of Exit Criteria @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 3. MQL’s vs “good” leads • Marketing frustrated by Sales not following up on their hard-won MQL’s • Sales complaints about a lack of “good” or “qualified” leads @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 4. Language Redefined • MQLs often “scored” by – “Who is our target audience?” – “How can we stimulate their interest?” – “What can we give them? What will they take?” • Sales leads are often valued by – “Who is our target account? – “How can I leverage them for an intro to power?” – “What can they give me? What can I ask for?” @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 5. Language Redefined @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 6. Exit Criteria Defined • Marketing = Traditional Lead Scoring based on ENGAGEMENT • Sales = Sales Stage Definition based on ACTIVITY • The Missing Link….. Exit Criteria: Specific, measurable actions by the prospect that indicate they may be willing to “cross the chasm” from lead to sales opportunity @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 7. Exit Criteria Defined Marketing • Lead Health = Various activities are assigned levels of engagement and become the requirement to “exit” the previous stage – ie: Webinar participation v Seminar attendance – ie: Twitter follower v Comments on Blog posts • Marketing designs campaigns that inspire specific behavior mapped to sales requirements @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 8. Exit Criteria Defined Sales • Leads with momentum are acted on with more urgency • MQLs now enter the reps pipeline in a pre-determined sales stage • Action is always the goal: Rep continues relationship with higher series of closes @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 9. The Result • Marketing focuses on the close – Faster measurement of campaign success – True ROI is measured within the Funnel • Sales leverages activity to continue closing process – Removes subjective nature from their pipeline – Exposes gaps in sales commitment to use lead gen efforts • Both sides enjoy a common language – collaborate on activities with the greatest success rates @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 10. Action items • Pilot with “low-hanging fruit” • Share lead scoring values and sales stage definitions • Keep desire activity closes constant • Compare success of MQL oppts v Sales generated oppts @mjhoffman #EE13
  • 11. Thank You M. Jeffrey Hoffman President and CEO MJ Hoffman and Associates www.mjhoffman.com Q&A @mjhoffman #EE13
