3 sales targeting tactics to boost your replies

Not getting replies from your Ideal Customer Profile? Maybe you’re reaching out to your target audience at the wrong time.

To get customers through cold outreach, you need to know exactly who’s your buyer persona and when they’re most likely to talk to you and buy your product/service.

So, when it’s the best time to reach out to your prospects?

Here are 3 sales targeting opportunities that you can use to book more meetings with your prospects:

#1 Prospects' companies are hiring

Keep an eye on your ICP company's structural changes, as their growth can indicate a need for your solution.

For example, we pay attention to growing sales teams since our tool helps increase revenue with outbound. A growing sales team indicates that they need more efficient solutions to scale and achieve their targets, which is an opportunity for our SDRs to help them out.

An easy way to track these changes?

→ use the “Department headcount growth” filter in LinkedIn Sales Navigator 👇

#2 Prospects changed roles

When someone starts a new role, they might look to introduce new tools or services to increase performance in their first 90 days.

This is your opportunity to reach out to the newbie, explore their pain points, and offer help.

There are 2 ways you can track these changes:

→ set post notifications on the prospect's LinkedIn profile

→ add them to the Sales Navigator list and activate changes notifications 👇

#3 Prospects' companies raised funds

If a company raised funds, that often means they’re planning to grow fast and have some money to spend.

That’s a green light for you as your solution can help them reach their end goal (and they have the budget for it).

Here are 3 ways to track your prospect’s fundraising activities:

→ follow their company on LinkedIn and turn on Sales Navigator’s notifications

→ use Google advanced search by typing: “site:nameofthesite ROUND”

→ use Crunchbase to identify leads that have raised funds recently 👇

Best email databases to get your leads’ information

By reaching out to the right people, you can open new business opportunities and ultimately generate more business revenue.

Here are our top 3 email database recommendations that can help you build, grow, and manage your leads list.
