Jim was new to Chorus when the pandemic hit! Jim has a front row seat in terms of seeing how conversations have changed. I ask him what prospects are talking about and how sales teams are pivoting some of their messages as well. We talk about what he has seen by mining their own data and by listening to those changes and what they're finding about the way sales teams have really pivoted in this time.
Surprising to some, connect rates are at least holding steady, if not going up. Prospects are more open to talking to sales reps, especially those who have shown they can provide some value. It'll be interesting to see if that continues as we get into more back-to-the office or more of a hybrid work-from-home-work-from-the-office, wherever we are mode. Jim shares some of the data that supports this and how that can give some optimism to sales teams.
This and a lot more! Read the full transcript on the Heinz Marketing blog starting Mon. 6/29/20 at 6am PST.
