With the average business email sending and receiving approx.134 emails a day in 2017, it’s evident that automated emails, sequences and workflows, have quickly risen to reign supreme in the sales world. Automated email campaigns and analytics tracking platforms allow companies of all sizes to proactively contact prospects, gauge audience interest, collect contact data and insight, and get their message seen on a scale that was previously budgetarily inaccessible for all but top Fortune 500 companies. Unfortunately, email’s popularity has caused inboxes to become oversaturated, turning your outreach into “just another email” and reducing the visibility of your message.
Email outreach is undoubtedly still offering big bang for each buck, with the average dollar spent returning $44.25 in revenue. The high potential return means competitive companies can’t afford not to make email outreach a priority. So how can you connect with your leads and nurture relationships with prospects and get noticed above all the noise? Allow me to introduce you to the concept of Automated Sales Qualification Calls. Automated sales calls are a powerful evolution of your current automated email marketing strategy, seamlessly integrating the call channel into your existing email workflows or sequences. You no longer need to rely on call tasks or reminders; live calls can now be easily scheduled to accompany many different scenarios your prospect will experience throughout the different stages of the buyer’s journey, such as when they download an ebook, receive or open an email, or when they could benefit from a follow-up call to keep your company top of mind.
The call channel has at times gotten a bad rap, with large portions of the general public associating all calls with the invasive feeling of B2C telemarketing. The simple truth is, B2B calls are a totally different ball game. The stats indicate that businesses that use marketing automation to nurture prospects experience a451% increase in qualified leadsand a whopping92% of all customer interactions still happen over the phone!Layering calls into existing email drip campaigns is a crucial next step for any growth-focused business looking to maximize their visibility. But, blindly adding follow-up call tasks to already busy sales reps schedules is not the only answer. To harness the full potential of automated email and call campaigns, and eliminate human bias, you should not just “add in calls”, but instead inject intelligence into your sales and marketing campaigns.
