Independence Day is right around the corner, so now is a good time to remember and be thankful for things from which we’re independent:

  • The British (that’s a 1776 historical reference folks, not a 2016 political one)
  • Mom and Dad (and if you’re not, spoiler alert: they wish you were)
  • Boring blogs (for the moment anyway – you’re reading this one, aren’t you?)

But what about independence from sales drudgery? What’s sales drudgery, you ask? Well if you’re a salesperson, you know what I’m talking about:

  1. Receive hot lead from Marketing (hooray!)
  2. Phone hot lead, leave voicemail
  3. Email hot lead, receive no reply
  4. Email hot lead, receive no reply
  5. Phone hot lead, get voicemail
  6. Email hot lead, receive no reply
  7. Rinse and repeat…

It’s excruciating, but it has to be done. Otherwise what hope is there of engaging the lead? Of gauging their intent to buy? Ensuring you have their correct information (like a phone number)? And it has to be done for Every. Single. Lead. We hold these truths to be self-evident but c’mon, that’s drudgery.

But what if you really could gain your independence from it? What if you had, say, an artificial intelligence based sales assistant to do it for you? One who followed up with every single lead, persistently, patiently and in an always friendly way? Never called in sick and never prejudged anyone? And, being an AI, loved doing your drudge work?

That would be awesome, right? True independence! Well “would be” no more, because Conversica’s artificial intelligence software does all that and more. And in so doing, it:

  • Frees your reps up for actual selling (the automated AI virtual assistant separates the good leads from the dead ones, so sales reps talk only with those prospects with interest and intent to buy)..
  • Gathers critical business intelligence (prospects not only respond more readily, they also share critical information such as phone numbers, best times to call, and intent to buy), and
  • Improves your sales process (the sales assistant follows up with prospects again after handing off to a sales rep, to deliver management insight and ensure customer satisfaction).

If you’ve yet to gain your independence from sales drudgery, now’s the time to give Conversica’s AI software for marketing and sales a try. After all, when in the course of human events it becomes necessary for a person to do drudge work, it’s time for a change.
