How to improve your sales prospecting?

What is Prospecting?
The first phase in the sales process is prospecting, which entails locating new clients, also known as prospects. Prospecting’s purpose is to build a database of possible clients and then engage with them in a methodical manner in the hopes of converting them from potential to existing customers.

1) Create content that instantly captures the buyer’s attention
The first touchpoint in most of the B2C businesses is not a salesman but the communication or the content the brand posts, be it on social media platforms or website or in any other form. While seeing advertisements/content buyers do not have undivided attention on the content, instead the content gets stuck with the buyer when it is something so good that it just captures the attention. It is very important for a brand to create that recall by creating good enough content.

2) Quality over quantity
Buyers aren’t interested in generic emails. Instead, they want personalised, one-to-one communications that are relevant to their business and sector. Spend the time to write high-quality, personalised emails and send them one at a time. This should increase the likelihood of your emails getting viewed and answered to greatly.

3) Conversion
