Getting Started with Call Transcription & Coaching - Sales Hub 🎧

Hey Community,

 

Have you ever ended a phone call with a prospect or customer and tried to remember everything you talked about? Or maybe are wondering if you could have used a better selling technique? Or perhaps you’re trying to make sense of your notes? 

 

Call Transcription and Coaching can help! With call transcription & coaching in Sales Hub, every call between your team and your prospects & customers is automatically captured in your CRM.  

 

What are the benefits of call transcription & coaching? 

  • Keep a record of all customer calls: Refer back to an important call at any time for follow-up or training purposes.
  • Improve customer experience: Learn about your audience and communicate back with your internal team on how to improve the buyer’s journey.
  • Search and scan for specific information: Transcribed conversations make it easy for managers and reps to search for highlights, keywords, and phrases.
  • Use transcriptions for coaching: Host a movie night with your team to listen to what a sales rep should say (and should not say) during a call. 
  • Professional development: Listen to your calls to identify areas for improvement and strengths. 
  • Onboarding new hires: Call transcriptions are like scripts for new team members. They help new hires learn sales tactics and for managers to provide feedback during the onboarding process.

Hi Community,
I have found one of the best use cases of this in the Hubspot reporting. By adding the selected tracked terms we can see the count of the contacts has used these terms also the contact owner for the specified terms.
We can build such reports in Reports> Custom Reports> Select Calls and Contacts.
Adding a sample pic of the Report and Knowledge base article.

Thanks for the tag @MiaSrebrnjak! This is a great addition to the Hubs for sure. Nice run down of features and ideas, @kvonloesecke

 

At Impulse Creative we're already using a third-party solution, but is very similar. The best benefit I've seen is that it can help you see trends like sales folks talking more than listening. You can also pick up on prospects using a partiucular phrase that reframes your solution and helps you talk about it with real-world language rather than jargon. So yeah, this recording and coaching feature in HubSpot is legit for sure.

I love the Call Intelligence features in Sale Hub. When I started selling and was on an SDR team, I was fortunate enough to work for a manager that prioritized coaching. We really would have benefited from having tools like this rather than listening to Vonage recordings 😂

 

I made a couple of videos recently with some ideas on how to use Call Intelligence in your coaching motions. More specifically, how you can leverage Tracked Terms, which are still gated in the Enterprise tiers of Sales/Service hub.

 

 

Go forth and conquer, Sales Teams!

Getting Started with Call Transcription & Coaching - Sales Hub 🎧

As a non-sales person who implemented the CRM for the sales team, I was always perplexed why the call notes were so brief when the box opens for notes as soon as you start the call. 🤔

 

Why couldn't they all type 200+ words a minute and talk and type at the same time? or recap the entire call afterward as other teams could.

 

I realized the key difference between someone focused on providing key customer information to sales (like training our admin/front desk or service teams), the difference was engagement with the call.

 

In service/support roles, you're intaking information, and documenting a conversation is part of your job.

 

In sales, you're actively engaging a prospect and your goal for the phone call is entirely different.

 

I do not doubt that call transcription will remove friction and provide greater transparency for sales teams to be successful. Not to mention sales would no longer have to rely on their memory to make up for poor note-taking which would result in improved customer delight in subsequent interactions.

Creating engament during a sales calls is not an easy task, as the prospect is usually less inclined to share information with you as on a support/service call, where you share a common goal. Thank you for this insight @Jnix284!

This makes Call Transcription even more valuable & helpful. 🙂
