Step 3: Prepare with Sales Intelligence


Sales Intelligence Overview 

Nothing impresses a decision-maker more than a sales rep who has done their homework. It’s not only a time saver for the buyer, who doesn’t have to educate the sales rep about the company’s needs, it also suggests a vendor willing to invest in the effort to be a partner.

If you’ve used Sales Intelligence to prioritize your leads, you already have a head start on knowing what’s going on in the account.

There’s no better way to know what’s going on in the mind of buyers than social media. Check posts from the company and posts from others about the company, click to follow the company on Twitter or Facebook, and check out company blogs.
