The Challenge of B2B Sales
In B2B sales, every deal can feel like a complex puzzle. Finding the key to closing a deal can be as elusive as trying to catch smoke with your bare hands. Multiple decision-makers, long sales cycles, intricate product offerings — it all adds to the challenge. And amid this complexity, you're left searching for concrete data and analytics to guide you.
The Power Of Interactive Demos
We've covered how an interactive demo gallery can help reduce unqualified leads. And how analytics from the interactive demos can help you build out that first discovery meeting. We've previously explored how interactive demos can reduce unqualified leads and enhance the first discovery meeting. Now, let's shift our focus to how these demos can ease the mid-funnel deal process, offering efficiency and clarity.
What Actually Moves The Needle In B2B Sales?
I’ve been in B2B sales for a long time, and it's still really hard to tell what makes the difference. I just spent 7 days without sleep making sure this RFI was beautifully answered. It has diagrams, explanations, and case studies. Did that make a difference? Did anyone read it at all? Uncertainty in sales takes an emotional toll, leading to stress, decreased productivity, and feelings of helplessness. Gathering data to drive predictions is essential. That's where Demoboost's enhancement to Salesforce analytics comes in. This synergy brings accurate predictions to the sales process, transforming complexity into opportunity.
Understanding Einstein AI
PS: A Quick Explainer on Salesforce’s Einstein AI I think it’s important to explain a little about Einstein AI here. Demoboost feeds data into Salesforce. Einstein AI, a feature within Salesforce, uses data science and machine learning to discern patterns of lead conversion, providing predictions for deal closure. Demoboost can directly impact Einstein’s Lead and Opportunity scoring. Consider a demo view as an impactful event, reflecting in the scores.
Einstein Lead Scoring
Lead scoring gets a boost with Einstein Lead Scoring. This AI-powered tool studies your past leads, identifying which current leads are most likely to convert. Using machine learning, it’s not only faster but also more accurate than traditional lead-scoring methods. It’s like having a seasoned expert helping you prioritize leads.
Einstein Opportunity Scoring
Another valuable tool is Einstein Opportunity Scoring. This feature assigns a score ranging from 1 to 99 to each opportunity, assisting you in focusing on the right prospects to close more deals.
How Demoboost Supercharges Your Sales Process
Now that we've covered the basics of Einstein AI, let's see how Demoboost integrates with Salesforce in these 5 primary ways:
When a lead watches a demo through Demoboost, we capture the details and feed them into Salesforce. No lead is left behind; everything is tracked and managed efficiently.
Demoboost adds points to the Salesforce lead score when a lead opens a demo. With Einstein AI analyzing successful conversion patterns, you get a clear picture of lead engagement.
Demoboost also works with marketing automation tools like Pardot. If a lead watches a demo, an email nurturing campaign is launched, ensuring timely follow-up.
Demoboost enhances opportunity scoring in Salesforce. When a demo is opened, points are added to the forecast probability, providing a more accurate prediction with Einstein AI's help.
With Demoboost, updates are streamlined. When a demo is opened, the opportunity moves to the next stage, keeping the sales process smooth and efficient. This integration is particularly applicable in self-serve opportunities, where demo activity (e.g. demo open) can lead to significant opportunity updates.\
