The importance of an active sales pipeline

Having an active sales pipeline is key to ensuring your sales team is operating at its best. With an active pipeline, your reps can focus on the leads that are most likely to close — rather than wasting time warming up cold leads that may be unqualified. This not only helps them close deals faster, but also helps prevent burnout and keeps reps motivated.

An active sales pipeline also ensures that your revenue stays consistent and scalable. It will help you avoid dry spells in your sales cycle and give your reps a higher volume of qualified leads to pursue once they close a deal.

Managing an active pipeline ensures you’re not missing out on any potential sales that could potentially fall through the cracks. By keeping track of the leads in your pipeline, you can make informed decisions about where to focus your efforts and make adjustments as needed.

Sales prospecting challenges

One of the biggest challenges of sales prospecting is the time it takes to reach out to cold leads who may not answer and follow up persistently enough. Many sales reps have to devote a significant portion of their time to prospecting, which can take away from their ability to close deals.

Other reps won’t devote enough time to prospect well because they are much more motivated to focus on warmer opportunities, closing deals, and meeting their quota.

Additionally, the process of prospecting can be discouraging — which can lead to burnout. It’s important to find ways to streamline the prospecting process and let salespeople focus on the most promising leads in order to overcome these challenges.

Improve sales prospecting with an SDR team

The most effective way to improve sales prospecting is by using an SDR (sales development representative) team. An SDR team is responsible for reaching out to both cold and inbound leads, qualifying them based on your criteria, and then scheduling appointments for sales reps. 

SDRs are specifically trained to handle the initial stages of the sales process, so they can manage these tasks more effectively and dedicate enough time to do them well. By working with an SDR team, sales reps can focus on what they do best: closing deals.

Implementing an SDR model can help an organization in a variety of ways:

  • Saves time for your sales reps
  • Efficiently qualifies prospects
  • Generates high-quality sales meetings

If you’d like a detailed plan of action, we’ve also written a guide that covers appointment setting strategies to grow your pipeline. We go over tactics your team can implement to ensure you’re doing all you can to expand your pipeline.

Processes & tools for an SDR team

When it comes to setting more meetings, having the right processes and tools in place is key to your SDR team’s success. Preparing these correctly can make all the difference in the effectiveness and efficiency of your SDRs.

We recommend utilizing these processes and tools to get more sales meetings:

  • Accurate lead database: Build your list of target accounts and individual contacts your SDRs should connect with.
  • Strategic touch cadence: How and how often SDRs should reach out to prospects.
  • Lead qualification process: The process SDRs should follow to convert prospects to sales-qualified leads (SQLs).
  • Warm hand-off to sales rep: Smooth transition from SDR to sales rep for a positive prospect experience.

Watch our on-demand webinar for a deeper look at these 4 processes and tools.

Building your own SDR team can take months, especially if you want them to be proficient in these processes and tools. That’s why we recommend partnering with an experienced SDR team like EBQ that is already skilled in these areas.
