In its raw form, data has no value. To be used for lead generation, data has to be carefully cleaned by a virtual sales assistant. Our detail-oriented researchers have 1000’s of hours of experience cleaning and improving data for lead generation campaigns. The importance of data cleaning can’t be understated You only get one chance to make a positive impression, and if your data hasn’t been thoroughly scrubbed that opportunity will be lost.

Prospects want to receive messages that add value to their lives and situation. In other words, they want to receive messages that are relevant and make sense for them to receive. The prospect should feel like your message was intended for them, and them alone. This level of personalization is quite time consuming and is best left to your virtual sales assistant.

Why Work With A Virtual Sales Assistant?
By now you almost certainly know why you should be working with a virtual sales assistant. The benefits to your sales team are significant. In part this is because you allow them to offload the tedious administrative tasks that get in the way of high impact customer discussions. Here are some of the most popular reasons sales teams want to work with a virtual sales assistant.
For most companies, scaling sales remains one of their biggest challenges. Working with a virtual sales assistant enables you to accelerate (or decelerate) your lead generation campaigns with ease. When you need more opportunities in your pipeline, just request more prospects for your campaign. It’s literally that simple and you can think of it as growth on demand. As your sales team grows, your virtual sales assistant can increase activity to fill their pipeline.
Your sales team is almost certainly expert at helping prospects understand and use your solutions. But most sales professionals don’t have a background in b2b data development. Strong research and skills take months or years to master. And it’s probably not the best use of time for your sales team to learn these skills. Virtual sales assistants are focused on finding new clients for your business all day long. And this single-minded support for your sales team is what makes them great at what they do.
Massive Cost Savings:
A virtual sales assistant costs a fraction of what you’d pay a sales person to do the same work in-house. These are savings that can only be achieved through niche economies of scale. All in, a virtual assistant for sales costs less than 10% of doing the same work in-house.
Since your virtual sales assistant is an outsourced solution you aren’t responsible for all the overheads that you would otherwise incur. And overheads go way beyond the cost of office space, computers, and insurance. There are also significant investments required for lead generation tools and data sets. When you combine all these costs together, hiring a virtual sales assistant is the obvious choice.
Time Management & Productivity:
It’s your responsibility to make the best use of your time; and the same holds true for your sales team. You want to make the most of the opportunities available to you by being as productive as possible. That means spending as much time as possible on high value activities. And as little time possible on activities that have a lower ROI. To achieve this goal, your sales team needs to delegate repetitive tasks to a virtual sales assistant. There’s no better way to maximize productivity in sales.
Harvard Business Review recommends managers do an inventory of the work they do every month. They discovered that as much as 20% of administrative tasks can be redesigned to be outsourced to capable professionals. Thus leaving them with considerably more time for customer work and other tasks that most impact your business. For your sales team this means more client facing time. And ultimately, more sales revenue for the quarter.
