For most businesses going through mergers and acquisitions, bringing together sales intelligence data across systems and teams can be a significant challenge. Restore did not have an easy way to map who knows who at key accounts across their rapidly growing employee base, until they invested into Introhive.

How to Accelerate Sales: Top 4 CRM Add-Ons

I’m willing to bet that “how to accelerate sales” is a very popular Google search for B2B business development sales professionals. At an average conversion time of 84 days, their sales cycles are notoriously long and complex. And that’s when leads close with a sale, which is only 13 percent of the time. 

It’s easy to understand why just about every business development team is constantly on the hunt for strategies to not only increase their revenue, but also decrease the amount of time they spend chasing people down. 

Ironically, the tool they’re looking for is sitting right under their…

How to Tap Your Network to Boost Sales

Read on for a quick 101 in the art and science of warm introductions.

If your cold calls get the cold shoulder, know that the odds are against you. Just 1 percent of cold calls result in a meeting. And nearly nine out of 10 high-level B2B buyers don’t even respond to them.

What buyers really want are referrals from people they know. In fact, a referral kicks off the sales process for 84 percent of B2B buyers. Why the high rate of success? Because referrals from real-life connections warm up the buyer (hence the phrase “warm introductions”),…

When Sales Funnels Go Wrong

Are your sales funnels delivering?  Probably not, if you’re reading this. Or, at least, you sense your sales performance could be better.

It’s really all about risk management. There’s the risk of coming in below predicted target with implications for individuals and organizations. And you have the risk of business plans and cash requirement being driven off course. You might even be at risk of non-delivery if unexpected business comes in at unexpected times.   

But successful funnel management goes beyond risk reporting. And it does more than improve forecasting accuracy. Optimized sales funnel management identifies potential problems in the…

6 Keys to Success with Third-Party Sales

Managing third-party selling is not easy. But in many sectors, it is very important! The intermediaries hold the key to increased income from existing clients and winning new clients.  

Third-party selling can either be the way the company delivers customer intimacy or a barrier to customer intimacy.

In the past companies often took the view that provided the results were good (right volumes, right margins, right compliance) then the activity of distributors did not really matter.  It was almost part of the deal: “as long as you deliver the result we will leave you alone. You get your freedom….

Featured Partner Interview: SalesLevers’ Richard Higham on the Future of Sales

When SalesLevers’ founders Richard Higham, Martin Allison and Alan Timothy, set out to build their U.K.-based sales performance consultancy in 2017, they came from diverse backgrounds. But they all agreed on one thing: the world of sales was changing.

“We see four drivers of sales change,” Higham said. “Today’s sales teams have to sell in what we call a ‘VUCA’ world, where volatility, complexity and ambiguity interact. They’ve got to generate growth in low-growth economies. They’ve got to deal with buyers who are changing significantly in the way that they want to do business. And finally, there’s a whole…
