A strong value proposition and a great strategy are requirements for companies who sell to underground conduit businesses. Although there are market challenges, new companies can gain traction by applying a handful of proven sales principles.
Strategy and ROI
The best sales programs place a heavy emphasis on customer ROI. This is especially important when selling to underground conduit businesses because in this industry, budgets are extremely tight, and every dollar your customer invests has to lead to a financial payoff in their sales revenues and profits.
Emerging sellers in the underground conduit business market are advised to create customer profiles before they invest in a specific sales strategy. A little industry knowledge can go a long way toward equipping your team with the tools required to sell to high value underground conduit business leads.
In this industry, it is especially important to develop a customer-focused approach. In general, underground conduit businesses are very skilled at spotting B2B companies that lack an awareness of the issues that are important to them and they tend to hold out for more knowledgeable suppliers, even if it means paying a slightly higher price.
Message First, Targets Second
Messaging is an important part of a successful sales strategy. Muddy messaging dilutes the sales cycle and makes it difficult for prospective customers to discern the value of your products.
Whenever possible, the identification of key messaging should be incorporated into a comprehensive planning process that combines sales and marketing into a single, unified strategy.
The next step is to reduce your contact list to the contacts who are most likely to respond to your messaging. Although there is more than one way to capture lead contacts, lead lists can be a useful resource for generating a list of prospects that are receptive to your messaging. Vendors like Experian are skilled at providing targeted lists of underground conduit businesses that can be tailored to meet geographic and demographic criteria.
