Getting Strategic about Sales Acceleration

Finding new ways to engage with stakeholders earlier in their purchasing process, or finding ways to speed up their patch purchase is the “new oil” in the inside sales industry. This is sales acceleration, and for top performing sales organisations this is a must have and a potential competitive advantage. That is, if they can manage to successfully devise and implement an effective sales acceleration strategy.

Recent research, from the Aberdeen Group, suggests that best in class sales organisations do not leave sales acceleration to chance. They organise content better for the content to support the leads they have acquired, they queue marketing material / whitepapers and they execute a very structured sales acceleration strategy.

Join us at this ISDN event where, and IBM share their thoughts on how to plan and execute a best in class Sales Acceleration strategy.
