Sales leaders know they need to give their sales development teams a proven prospecting cadence to follow. But many aren’t sure what’s the best approach or how to get started.
Random Sales Cadences Kill Your Conversations
The sales cadence is a sequence of activities to improve contact and qualification rates. They may be phone calls, emails, voicemails or other sales activities. The latest research on sales cadence from InsideSales showed that most of the time, sales reps will set sales cadences arbitrarily, without any regards as to what is performing well.
The study analyzed thousands of companies and revealed:
• The most common outreach practice is email (32 percent of respondents use this method)
• 61 percent of first contacts happen via email
• The second most utilized cadence is a single call and voicemail (6 percent)
But is it the correct approach, to send a single call and a voicemail? Sometimes, leads will need more than that to ‘warm up’ and actually be willing to set an appointment with your sales executives.
