I like to find companies on LinkedIn that I believe fit my ICP and then connect with the people that fit my buying personas.

By using CRM (following up with prospects), linking in with tour operators, approaching prospects who expressed some interest in our products (website views, missed calls) but haven't followed through.

How do you identify active buyers?

For me the easiest methods of identifying active buyers would be to check the crm system of the company and see the potential costumers, also to gain more prospects I'd constantly search the social media channels with appropriate hashtags and pages where I believe the buyers would be actively seeking help and build crm data through these

How do you identify active buyers?

I love using social media listening and engagement as my go-to method for identifying active buyers. Platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter are gold mines for this. By monitoring relevant hashtags, industry discussions, and joining groups, you can spot individuals and companies who are actively talking about the problems your product solves. Plus, engaging in these conversations helps build rapport and positions you as a helpful resource even before the sales process begins. It's a proactive and personal way to connect with potential buyers! What about you? How do you like to find active buyers?

How do you identify active buyers?

In a world in which we are innundated with information & choice, it is important that as an SDR you are prioritising leads - & that means watching out for those Active Buyers. 

But those active buyers are not going to show up at your doorstep asking for you to sell them your product. They may not even know about your product. 

 

Instead, lets leverage what we already know about the ICP & Target Persona. Who is in the discovery phase of their journey and has been visiting your website? Well, if they are signing up for more information from your website then lets go & reach out to them immediately. They are the priority here. 

We see they have a need to be solved or a goal to be achieved, so with some research lets find out what they do & how we can help them. Don't worry if this may not be the Key Decision Maker, or if they are in a lower position than your target person, as you may have just found your champion.

 

But, lets say the company website just isn't getting that traffic. There isn't enough information being derived & you are finding yourself in a dry spell. 

 

Time to get crafty. Let's dive deep into some high value prospects - customers that fit perfectly into our ICP. Let's look for prospects through links, blogs, posts about pain points that our previous customers have faced. Are they engaging, interacting, or following certain pages that signal they may need guidance on resolving an issue they are facing?

First : What social medias are they using? Let's prioritize building the personal brand on those platforms .

Second : Start building credibility by posting insightful and helpful content that is relevant to our ICP. Interact with posts they have interacted with to gain exposure, & ensure to consistently show an understanding of the topic through comments & following the thought leaders in the industry

Third : After identifying the correct channels & mirroring their needs - lets do some outreach 

 

Happy Selling !

Sales professionals employ various methods to connect with active buyers! What's your preferred approach? Social selling involves fostering relationships on platforms like LinkedIn. Content marketing attracts buyers by offering valuable content that addresses their needs. Networking events allow for face-to-face interactions to establish trust with potential buyers. Online lead generation tools target specific demographics through online ads. Cold outreach, such as personalized emails and calls, can be effective, but thorough research beforehand is crucial!

How do you identify active buyers?

Identifying active buys in person at networking events or specific conferences has been easier for me as I grow in this space. Engaging online with buyers and noticing buying signals has been more of a learning curve for me. When looking for buyers online, I tend to go after companies that have recently completed acquisitions.

How do you identify active buyers?

Well my favorite way is when I get a desktop notification from HuBSpot that some one is on our pricing page or has clicked on one of my meeting links.  

 

  • Outside of that, I'm a daily user of LinkedIn and networking.  
  • I audit LinkedIn profiles, websites, and social channels for triggers
  • I monitor news sources and sites for relevant company updates
  • I also ask people if they need our help when the timing makes sense.

These are my favorite ways because they are the most effective ways
