Until recently many salespeople (especially B2B salespeople) have managed to avoid modernising their sales strategy, on the premise that great sales relationships are best made in person. However, now a strong handshake and paid-for lunches are off the table, salespeople are having to finally make the leap into digital selling.
Digital selling now encompasses every part of the sales cycle from generating prospects, through nurturing leads, to drafting up contracts and invoices. Advances in cloud computing, automations, analytics and AI have meant that digital sales tools are now more affordable and accessible than ever. In short, there’s no reason not to invest!
If all you’re using is CRM tools, it’s likely that by now your market competitors are outperforming you. No matter what size your company is or what industry you are part of, digital sales toolkits will help you turn more of your leads into deals and increase revenue. Sold yet? We thought so! Read on to find out how to begin your journey optimising your leads funnel with sales tools.
Now businesses of all sizes can afford to implement automations and analytic tools into their daily functions, the sales process can be more efficient than ever. The customer has access to more information about your business than they ever would have before, and so modern sales tools support a consultative and “honest” sales relationship by helping you to build relationships with prospects, customers and their influential sources.
Automations in your digital sales suite saves your sales teams’ valuable time on manual, repetitive or lengthy daily tasks. Automations span the full sales funnel: from predictive lead scoring for prospects, to lead nurturing, to invoice generating. By both decreasing the amount of time and resources needed to make a sale and simultaneously prioritising the biggest deals, you will see a huge boost in productivity from your digital selling tools.
Digital sales toolkits allow your sales and marketing teams to unite their efforts in lead generation and management. All audience demographic data can be shared easily with the sales team and turned into vital metrics about your most valuable prospects, helping sales reps to allocate time and financial resources better: boosting both revenue and productivity.
Based on the cloud, having a digital sales toolkit allows you to set up processes that automatically collect and store your key data. The best thing? Because the servers holding your information are not located onsite, any maintenance or errors are swiftly fixed by an external team, giving you total peace of mind about your data security. Whatsmore, the cloud is a totally flexible storage space, meaning you can upload an unlimited amount of information to your files and access them any time, from any device anywhere in the world.

Customer relationship building
When you integrate your sales tools with your core CRM kit, it allows you to keep the customer experience the key focus of your sales funnel. These days, customers don’t like being blatantly sold to. In a world with plenty of choice: from price range to global locations, customers are looking for excellent and dependable service, and it is up to you to provide that for them.
“Sales is not about selling anymore, but about building trust and educating”
Futuristic sales are dependent on conversational and genuine selling, rather than creating and delivering tactic-heavy sales pitches. By integrating CRM tools into your sales strategy, prospects can be qualified and nurtured according to large banks of personal customer information that your digital tools collect about them: from user journey across your touchpoints to purchase history.
Turning the sales pitch into a conversation means the lead progresses more naturally through your pipeline and results in a sales relationship that leaves the customer knowing exactly how your product or service meets their needs: resulting in higher conversions, deal closures, and cross-selling opportunities.
