The Problem - an inefficient sales cycle

The Problem - an inefficient sales cycle

What is lacking in a manual sales process?
Without a marketing automation software, the sales team loses out on two critical steps :

  • Lead Qualification: Every lead that is captured gets passed on to sales, without making sure if they are indeed interested in buying. So, your team has to spend valuable band width chasing leads who actually might not be intending to buy
  • Lead Prioritization: Of the leads that come in, whom to call first? Currently, sales team will not have an exact idea of which lead is the most interested in buying from them. So while they spend time on lead A, lead B - a much better opportunity slips away.

Both these problems can be rectified with a marketing automation software. It gives your sales team 5 key advantages that help them sell better. You can read all about it on 5 ways a marketing automation software helps improve sales. I shall give you the outline right here.
