Cold calling alone is not an option to grow your customer base. A Business Development Representative (BDR) is the first step on the sales totem pole. With the right marketing, BDR’s and sales strategy that works you can lift your entire sales team to new heights.
What Is a Business Development Representative?
BDRs are specialized inside sales reps tasked with concentrating on outbound prospecting in an attempt to increase quality leads. The mission of the BDR is to drive leads through the sales funnel. Utilizing a raw list of sales leads, he or she contacts prospects in an attempt to qualify leads and set up appointments, after which the sales representatives follow up by meeting with buyers, spending time selling and closing the deal.
Our BDR’s are hand-selected by our clients and paired up with outside sales associates to drive revenue. Our partnering clients have closed over a billion dollars (refer to SEG for notes on this) of business. We take pride in our clients closing deals, not just setting up the meetings.
Interim Sales Executive
Through our Interim Sales Executive solution, a proven, top-performing sales executive works on-site with your organization to stimulate growth. In addition, we focus on building companies and teams that spur long-term growth. Our interim sales management solution gives you all the advantages of a seasoned sales leadership professional — without the risks of a direct hire. We have executed over 250 successful engagements that have led to increased growth.
How Our Outsourced Sales Executive Solution Works
An Interim Sales Executive from SEG is an experienced, battle-tested sales executive with the proven ability to organize sales teams and take them to a higher level of productivity. You can engage one of our stellar sales executives for a period of 6 to 24 months. Your Interim VP of Sales, or Sales Executive, devotes their full attention to the complete range of sales leadership activities that will be determined by SEG’s experts and your organization. We focus on the Key Performance Indicators that will drive the biggest impact and key drivers for your organization.
Why an Interim Sales Executive Program?
Companies and Private Equity Firms/Investment Firms hire SEG to execute and get results. To date, more than 250 companies have benefited from our Interim Sales Executive Program, and the average revenue increase has been over 30 percent. Your sales organization is too valuable to put at risk with an untested management solution and too valuable to leave unmanged or under-managed. Our interim solution enables you to avoid either of these options, as we work with you to implement a sustainable structure and management team for your company’s long-term success. An outsourced Sales Executive brings fresh thinking and new ideas to your sales team. One of the biggest pitfalls of a sales organization is an inward focus. By exposing your sales team to new methodologies, and the Sales Empowerment Group proven model, you and your organization will have the ability to get to the next level.
Finally, our Interim Sales Executive Program is a low-risk, high-reward solution. As a business leader, you understand the cost and disruption associated with hiring someone who turns out to be a bad fit, especially at the executive level. With an interim Sales Executive, your organization gains all the value of a permanent hire while avoiding both the cost of a high-level permanent employee, and a bad fit that could cost you money, and require a termination.
