Session topics include AI for data, AI for forecasting, AI for prospecting, AI for sales recruiting, and more.
AI Is Improving Sales Here And Now
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are changing the world in which we live, and touching almost every aspect of our lives, in almost every conceivable way.
AI is the engine behind Netflix’s ability to display a lineup of movies you might want to watch. It’s AI that enables Amazon to tempt you with additional products you might be interested in purchasing. AI enables Uber and Lyft to get a car to your location quickly. And of course, Google uses AI to display ads that are relevant to your previous browsing history. Home thermostats, car tires, and content delivery systems are now capable of learning and making recommendations. AI is everywhere.
What AI Can Do For You
Beyond consumer applications, AI is emerging as a tremendous tool within businesses themselves. And since sales plays such a huge role in virtually every business, advances that AI can bring to sales departments and teams can result in significant increases in productivity and revenues for the entire organization.
Think about it. As a small or mid-sized company, you don’t have an army of sales reps to deploy in the field. Even if you do have a few you think of as sales superstars, they probably can’t handle administrative work, qualify leads, close deals, or run sales meetings properly without a little bit of help.
That probably means you have to spend an inordinate amount of time chasing down your prospects—while often finding out way too late which ones are really worth spending your time on.
Or maybe you struggle with your sales workflow. Many of the sales tools out there can be challenging to set up and maintain. Instead of being distracted by taking care of the things you use to do your job, you’d rather able to rely on your systems and platforms so that you and your team are free to focus on the important stuff—namely, selling.
Automate. Analyze. Predict. Recommend.
As you discover what AI can do for you and your sales team, it just might become your new best friend. Who doesn’t want to delegate repetitive tasks or spend less time trying to predict outcomes without having the data you need to trust your accuracy? Here are a few things AI can do in a sales environment:
Process Mundane Tasks
AI can transform sales by handling those boring and repetitive tasks— finding and sorting leads, monitoring orders, and sending emails to customers and prospective customers. AI can basically do a lot of the drudge work for you, so you can spend more of your time being productive.
Knowing how to identify high potential deals can make a huge difference to sales performance. Since AI is founded on data analysis, it’s not a stretch to think that AI platforms can analyze buyer profiles, identify leads and predict solutions and products that are likely to fit the buyer best. With all that data to process, AI literally can take the guesswork out of the equation. And save time and save headaches.
AI can be used to automate numerous tasks that normally take up a lot of time. Activity logging, identifying high-priority emails, and creating new contacts can be automated. Calculating ideal discount rates, predicting next quarter’s revenues, ranking leads, are a few more tasks that AI can do for you. Ready to free up more time to actually close some sales?
AI tools let you easily analyze performance results, from campaigns, to sales, to sales reps. You could even analyze what goes into the success of your top performing salespeople and share your insights with others on the sales team. You get to up the performance of the whole team over time and everybody wins.
