It's well into Q1 and you likely staring down an intimidating quota. Selling to hospitals and physicians is tough given the historical dependence on relationships. To meet and exceed your quota this year you need to find new ways to engage busy providers.
Maybe you are approaching a brand new lead. Perhaps you are trying to resurrect old prospect. How are you going to get through to them to book that next meeting?
Stop talking about yourself—Make it about them.
Your product may have the newest features, the best safety profile, the endorsement of top thought leaders, but none of that matters if you can't book the meeting.
Guess what? When you are approaching new leads they don't care about you or your product. People care about themselves and their own business the most, and that’s what they want to hear about. Put the spotlight on them, and they’ll be much more receptive to your message.
In order to put the spotlight on them, you need to understand their business.
Times are changing and we believe that salespeople need to adapt to the reality that data and customized messaging need to be part of your toolkit.
Here are a three reasons why your sales team should embrace data in their prospecting and relationship building.
(1) Create urgency
(2) Stand out from the crowd
Every other rep who is approaching your prospect is relying on old relationships or 3rd degree introductions that matter less and less in the age of value-based committees and more scrutiny on purchasing decisions. Break through to the decision makers and c-suite with interesting insights that matter to their business.
(3) Prove you can add value
You may be confident your product has better outcomes or is more cost effective than standard of care, but you need to prove you are a value add partner from day one.
