AI is rapidly revolutionizing the sales landscape, enabling our sales teams to make more accurate forecasts. Rather than succumbing to a futuristic robot uprising like those often portrayed in science fiction films, we can leverage AI to optimize operations on an unprecedented scale. In short, embracing AI means future-proofing your business and giving yourself a distinct advantage over competitors who are yet to recognize its potential.
Here are 5 ways AI can augment your sales:
1. Guided Selling: By utilizing smart software on our web pages and apps, we can help buyers find the ideal product or service for them in an efficient and streamlined way. That's why this type of actionable advice has become such a big part of successful modern-day marketing strategies. Chatbots, that guide buyers through prequalifying questions and signal leads, once qualified, are a great example of AI as an extension of our team.
2. Stalling: By staying ahead of the curve and utilizing risk data in real-time, we can prevent prospective sales deals from hitting a wall. A dynamic system to monitor changing conditions allows for more forward-thinking decision-making processes - putting valuable information at our fingertips. Giving us a better understanding of what's really happening with potential opportunities so that no deal goes missing due to avoidable risks.
3. Forecasting: Sales forecasts can be affected by a variety of factors, ranging from the familiar (sales targets and individual performance) to the more unpredictable (seasonal demands or external stakeholder changes). It's no easy task for our sales teams to keep track of all these competing elements - but with AI-driven machine learning platforms, we can get access to cutting-edge insights about consumer behavior quickly. Now we have resources in our arsenal that enable us only to draw comprehensive pictures of current scenarios...but also to make smart financial projections that lead directly to success.
4. Lead Scoring: Microsoft revolutionized lead qualification by harnessing the power of AI. With a focus on customer behavior, assigning values to each interaction with potential consumers enabled them to convert leads into repeat customers at unprecedented rates. This resulted in higher revenue and improved customer experience among many other benefits. The Top sales CRMs use lead-scoring AI to enhance sales.
5. Close More Business: Augmented Sales Ops, using AI, has a key role in ensuring that resources are well-utilized so they don't go to waste while also helping business hit their targets with fewer risks involved. With the right tools, technology, and data to support them, sales teams can make successful strides toward closing deals.
Truth be told, we use AI every day. We just aren't aware of it, because these things happen slowly. Whether on our smartphones, cars, Netflix, or Spotify accounts, AI is being used to enhance users' experience and ultimately augment our experience. Although today, AI is constantly talked about in the headlines, as usual, the mainstream is the last to know. Here are 2 more articles that I believe will be helpful.
