How Do Cadences Work for Sales Teams?

Regardless of the number of qualified leads flowing into your sales pipeline, if you don’t have strategic outreach mapped for your sales team to get ready to pounce on your sales opportunities, then the chances of achieving repeatable results at scale are reduced.

Let’s set the scene, you’re working in sales with 100 leads to follow up with daily, and the aim of shooting them across the line and scoring a goal into the won stage of your pipeline.

Some leads preferred channel is LinkedIn, others in email. Some want more information, others have gone cold.

It is a lot to manage and can become admin heavy to ensure none slip through the net.

The answer? Cadences.

What exactly is a cadence?

A cadence is a sequence a sales team follows to engage with prospects, via emails, phone calls, or social media. It is a strategic approach for your sales team’s outreach.

Sales cadences are your way of diversifying your outreach by connecting with your prospects via various channels. Whilst allowing you to create a ‘standard’ of what sales outreach should be, ensuring prospects are recieving high quality, consistent, on brand content and communications regardless of the sales person.

Why should I use cadences?

Developing sales cadences not only helps your organization but also your sales team to accelerate your conversion and increase profitability.

The purpose of a sales cadence is to schedule your interactions at strategic intervals to maximize the impact of your outreach and engage your prospects at the right time with the right message, via the right channels.

A tailored outreach, with up-to-date information on your prospects’ current stage of the buyer journey, will not only relay your awareness of their exact needs but make them more likely to engage with your organization.

Building Cadences

Creating a tailored, targeted approach to your prospect’s requirements and interests is the key to success.

A one size fits all approach doesn’t work.

Different touchpoints, different channels and different personas all require a different road to follow.

Imagine you are the prospect, think about:

  • What would you want to see from an organization?
  • What would provide you value?
  • What would make you think, ‘Yes, I want a demo from this company!’.
  • What would make one brand stand out from all the noise?

Does it seem like it’s too good to be true you can do ALL of this under one roof (in this case, platform)?

Trust us, it’s true!
