As if sales development reps didn’t have their jobs cut out for them already. Response rates are dropping, sales are becoming more complex, and as a result it’s getting more and more difficult to break through to the right person.
But does that mean prospecting is dead? Of course not. In fact, as the sales prospecting stats below show, smart SDRs are drawing on new skills and technology to help them develop a much-needed edge.
So don’t just sit there — jump on your leads, get to them first, leverage your network for referrals and connections, and above all, stay persistent and proactive!
