Supercharge your pipeline by leveraging a dedicated team of Sales Development Representatives under your brand, dramatically increasing sales opportunities at a fraction of the cost of hiring in-house.
Perhaps you have a handle on inbound marketing, but you know your outbound marketing needs help.
The thought of interviewing, hiring, and onboarding new Sales Development Representatives keeps you from implementing outbound strategies.
What if you could find a professional sales organization that could perform the hiring, onboarding, and management of your sales team for you?
Scale your prospecting efforts through Sales Development Outsourcing saving you time and money.
Alternative to: Hiring a Sales Development Team in-house or using 3rd party B2B lead generation companies.
Mitigate turnover rates due to “promotion aspiration” from Sales Development Representatives wanting to shift into an Account Executive role.
Best for: B2B Companies, and Manufacturers, that need professional outbound prospecting minus the personnel costs.
Why Outsource Your SDR Team?
Perhaps SDR outsourcing is a new concept to you, but Sales Development Services is a well-established strategy employed by fortune 100 for keeping a full sales funnel.
Sales Development Outsourcing allows you to invest more in your internal team (Account Executives, Regional Sales Managers, etc.) and removes the burden of hiring, training, and managing the outbound sales development in-house.
While we’ve written extensively on the subject, it is sometimes better to see for yourself the statistics that have driven growth in Sales Development Outsourcing and why we’ve developed our metric-based outbound sales program.
According to HubSpot Research, “72% of companies with less than 50 new opportunities per month didn’t achieve their revenue goals, compared to 15% with 51 to 100 new opportunities and just 4% for companies with 101 to 200 new opportunities.”
The Gong Data Science Team, “analyzed 15 months of data and found average salespeople made far more calls in the last month of the quarter than the first two. And the success rate of those “eleventh-hour” calls was usually lower than any other month.
Devoting time to prospecting every day makes sense. You should prospect just as much on the first day of the month or quarter as the last.”
According to HubSpot Research, “More than 40% of salespeople say this (outbound prospecting) is the most challenging part of the sales process, followed by closing deals (36%) and qualifying (22%). If you find outbound prospecting to be the most challenging part of your job, you’re not alone.”
I’m not sure that Sales Development Outsourcing is right for our company?
As a Sales Development Services partner, Wave Representatives has identified companies that fit the model and those that don’t.
We’ve worked with companies of all sizes, but here are three reasons you shouldn’t use an outsourced team.
1. You’re a B2C or B2B2C. SDR outsourcing flourishes within B2B companies; much of the value proposition involves cost-saving activities, e.g. account and contact details and personalization research for ideal customer profiles to optimize the sales process.
2. Your ACV (annual contract value) is lower than $2000, according to Jason Lemkin. Although outsourcing lowers your outreach costs, having a tiered sales structure for scalability comes with a price tag, and your revenue model needs to support it.
3. Your sales cycles are less than 30 days. If you’re closing deals within 30 days, on average, your product can sustain revenue growth through marketing versus an outbound sales program.
How much does SDR Outsourcing cost?
Several factors determine the average cost per Sales Development Representative. Without a doubt, outsourced sales, no matter which options are selected, will be less expensive than hiring and managing an internal team to run your sales development campaigns.
If you see a fit for your company and want to delegate Sales Development to a sales consulting firm, here are some things that will determine your cost.
1. US-based or Overseas Sales Outsourcing Team? (Wave Representatives offers both options for our customers).
2. 100% salary or salary plus a percentage of sales? (Wave Representatives offers both options with a scale that matches your compensation structure).
3. Six, Twelve, or Twenty-Four contractual agreements? (Wave Representatives offers the flexibility of short and long-term contracts so that prospective customers can determine what works best for them).
Isn’t this just Lead Generation?
A common misconception is that many confuse B2B Lead Generation and Appointment Setting services with Outbound Sales Development, but they’re entirely different.
Hiring Wave Representatives provides you with much more than an appointment setting or prospecting service. We provide a managed service where your sales team will function as a dedicated team under your brand, working with your internal sales and marketing teams.
Lead Generation and Appointment Setting services might be a cheaper option; however, the customer experience is impersonal, and conversion rates are much lower due to the generic target list approach.
In closing, the Sales Outsourcing business model has established sales playbooks and sales messaging focused on pipeline generation for your company.
If you’re looking to scale your prospecting efforts, Sales Development Outsourcing is a great strategic option that can provide reduced hiring costs, lower customer acquisition costs, and provide a professional sales organization’s insights, allowing you to scale up your sales pipeline and revenue faster.
