Identifying the ICP (ideal customer profile) and buyer personas lead to very pointed GTM (go-to-market) strategies. In our case, we studied the market and realized the exact definition of our customers and what kind of roles in those companies were driving the sales. Based on that, we defined the biggest problem statements they had, the solutions they needed, and our competitive edge. This customized approach led to clarity among the end-users. This led to targeted messaging per customer. This is the secret sauce to converting more leads.

Stay in touch! I tell this to my sales team at Courseplay all the time. The easiest thing to avoid if you have reached out to the customer at the wrong time is that you forget about them and, even worse, they forget about you. Regular follow-ups and connecting with different people at different levels of the organization would help ensure you are there when they need you.

If the lead gets qualified, i.e. the person is interested in taking your products/services, then the one tip to convert that lead into sales is rigorous follow-up. The consumer memory is very weak and fickle. If we do not approach them on time and take regular follow-ups, they tend to forget their enquiries as well as get dicey about the need of the same. Also, in a competitive market like today’s the one who approaches first and repetitively, is the one who gets the conversion. Thus the tip is β€œtimely communication”
