Sales calls…you never know how many you will have to make before you get the desired result before the prospect signs the deal. Some prospects may be willing to do business with you with minimal discussions; while others may need lots of thinking time and multiple proposal drafts and meetings. There is no single straight answer or one ideal statistic- but here are a few tools that may make figuring it out easier.
QUALIFY, QUALIFY, QUALIFYYou will encounter dozens of leads on your pipeline. You need to qualify your leads properly so that you can take things forward with prospects who really care and may actually convert. Many times, when you are pursuing leads, some may pop up which seem interested in your product at first, but fall off your radar after a few conversations. You need to be able to sift out the winners from the losers and let go of leads that go cold. Pursue leads if:
- They have a genuine problem that needs to be fixed
- Their needs and goals are aligned with yours
- Both parties can commit
- They are responsive
