To Research or Not To Research…

Is There Any Question?

You are ready! You are pumped! You know your company’s product inside and out…you’ve got your prospect list…you’re ready to hit the phones running!

But have you done enough research on your prospects?

“Research…nah…I can just wing it.”

Wait, what?! Of course you need to do some research!

Well, this sounds like the makings of another great debate!

Some feel that one of the most annoying sales practices is not being prepared for a call – not knowing who you’re calling and why. The most effective sales reps have done their research, they know their prospects interests, their motivations, and can anticipate their needs and concerns.

Others, however, are of the mindset that if you know your product, you can get your point across to anyone without having to stalk them online beforehand. No need to be creepy and know that your prospects prefers Coke to Pepsi and takes their pet to Doggie Daycare…you just know your stuff!

On Monday, September 30 at 2:00pm ET, we’re bringing together two sales power hitters – the UKs most hated sales trainer, Benjamin Dennehy, and sales consultant and host of the Sales IQ Podcast Luigi Prestinenzi - who will look at the research vs. no research debate from all sides. Can we come to a consensus? Tune in and find out!
