The countdown begins each day of every week of every month for every sales professional across the globe. The two words you normally hear them say are deals and time. But we can save time and maximize our deals by investing in the right processes, activities, and skills. The idea is to evolve with the evolving technologies and techniques.
On that note, let’s now understand how Prospecting has evolved over the years and how do we leverage advanced tools like Ampliz SalesBuddy to maximize sales in less time.
What is Prospecting?
Sales Prospecting is the initial part of the overall sales process. It consists of systematically analyzing the type of customer you want to acquire, identifying digital or real-life market opportunities, searching for potential customers, deciding the best way to approach them and contacting newly found leads via their preferred channel of communication.
While the techniques of sales prospecting are pretty straightforward, it’s much more nuanced in practice.
Now, how do you begin with prospecting?
Here are 5 simple steps that can put you right on track
- Research, Qualify and prioritize your leads
- Identification of Key decision maker
- Reach out to the decision-maker and make that introduction if possible schedule a meeting (using a scheduling app will make the process more professional)
- Educate and provide value to your customers.
(Tip: Talk in the language of your customers to close more deals. to elaborate, first address the pain points your customers are facing and then talk about your product/service)
- Address their issues/questions/objections and finally close the deal.
These steps are easier said than done. Let me give a cool stat here: Did you know that 80% of sales prospects report saying “no” four times before they get to a “yes,” on a deal?
Couple that with the fact that 92% of salespeople report giving up on a sales prospect after hearing four “no’s,” and we’ve got a lot of missed opportunities sitting on the table.
How exactly do you prospect amidst all this chaos?
Simple! Follow some best practices that experts use to improve their sales figures.
- Consistency is the key: Prospect Daily
- Emails and Mobile at bay! Keep the distractions away!
- Plan what you want to talk about
- Research about the company and the decision-maker, so you never mess with that first impression.
- Provide value in every call.
- Target the right audience
Let’s simplify as many processes for you.
How about a tool that provides you all the basic contact information of decision-makers like their email ID, contact numbers and LinkedIn profile in a click of a button?

The content need not be your company’s, but something you came across on the Internet, you think will be great to share. This will help build an amazing rapport with your customers. Even if your deal does not work out, your customer will still remember you for a long time! Cheers 🙂
