For B2B companies, it makes perfect sense to shorten the sales cycle wherever possible.

Sales processes cost valuable resource; The quicker you attract prospects and close deals, the more efficient and profitable your business becomes.

Without the use of streamlining techniques, the typical sales rep makes less than 20 calls in an hour. Yet, when applying sales acceleration and related software to better inform actions — research indicates this total actually doubles — equating to an average of 14 more appointments and 1,200 more calls per month.

It’s not only calling methods that can be optimised…

I’m going to uncover 5 modern B2B sales acceleration methods to achieve faster deals and more revenue.

Step #1: Create A Sales Process

Behind every thriving B2B organisation, you will often find a robust sales process — one that is well-documented and followed at all times.

A sales process is a systematic, repeatable series of steps that map out and track interaction with prospects from their first point of engagement with your business — right through to a close.

Such a process will often include:

  • Standardised sales scripts and goals for typical situations
  • An ‘ideal sales flow’ visualisation
  • Freely-available internal data for all team members to use as a selling tool
