Sales are crucial to the growth and success of any organisation. However, managing sales processes and customer interactions can be challenging. That’s where a diligently managed database comes in – one that is consistently updated with vetted data is an essential tool for any business looking to streamline their sales processes, increase customer engagement, and boost their bottom line.
Optimised database management can help with lead generation in several ways:
Managing a centralised database of customer information will help you to identify and target potential customers more effectively. Beware though, the data being added must be good quality to avoid inaccurate reporting, ineffective marketing campaigns, and lost opportunities. Avoid this with regular data cleaning and maintenance, and ensure your team follows consistent data entry standards.
To get a deep-dive of your data practices and lists, take a look at our Find & Reach Services which involves a GDPR review.
Scoring helps you to identify your most promising leads. This will allow your sales team to prioritise their efforts and focus on the most qualified prospects. However, it’s important to train your team to use the database correctly, encourage adoption within the team and communicate the benefits of using and maintaining it. Keeping workflows simple and focused on the most important tasks, reviewing these regularly and optimising as needed will help your team use it in their day-to-day work.

Send personalised messages and content based on your potential customers’ interests and their stage in the buying process to build relationships and keep them engaged until they’re ready to buy. This is possible when integrating the correct tools to assist with this. Without the right combination of people, process and tools you could experience problems with duplicate prospects, missed opportunities and a lack of visibility into customer behaviour. One example is to integrate your database with your email marketing software to get those perfectly timed messages out to the right people, at the right time.
