Searching for a New Hope in Lead Generation? Take it from Star Wars Stormtroopers

Searching for a New Hope in Lead Generation? Take it from Star Wars Stormtroopers
If businesses can learn three important things about B2B lead generation, they should come from popular science fiction films. Every movie within the genre often features an army hell-bent on taking over the world. In GI Joe, we have the Cobra organization. In Captain America, we have Hydra. Yet neither of these are as ambitious as the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps in the first Star Wars trilogy. Forget about a planet, these guys are all about keeping an entire galaxy in line. Underneath the white armor and beyond the intimidating name though lies sheer incompetence. In the same manner, some businesses often struggle with inefficient lead generation processes that function like stormtroopers. But since lead management is akin to organizing a galactic empire, managers should always think about how best to prospect for leads, improve their marketing campaigns and prevent their businesses from failing like the Death Star. Stay current and competent with technology. Know the terrain.

3 Sales Tips to Get your Reps Reach for the Numbers QuotaFactory recently published an article about the best ways to improve the performance of sales reps, which is something many B2B companies currently underscore. Applying the proper sales techniques determines the success not only of individual callers, but the whole company as well. And we’re sure that these techniques can provide a good starting point for the two parties to reach those numbers before the year ends. Tip #1: Plan and Share a Vision with your Sales Reps. This may be one of the single most motivating factors for sales reps, especially those new to the field. Many reps do not realize how many times they need to hear “no” before they hear a “yes” and that can be defeating, leading them to lose faith in themselves and their abilities.

Prepare for an Email Marketing Campaign the Right Way Every business has its own way of molding an effective lead generation campaign. For B2B companies, they enjoy access to a high amount of resources that make quality customer relations possible.
