Technological advancements are reshaping the world of sales. Innovative technologies, for example, such as generative AI or large language models, voice-to-text, the metaverse, etc., are helping sales teams to engage with customers faster and better and to streamline their overall sales operations.
While the advancement of technology has been positive, not enough companies are focused on customers. According to research conducted by HubSpot, a significant number of companies fail to prioritize customer surveys and feedback collection. Surprisingly, the study reveals that a staggering 42% of businesses neglect this essential aspect of customer engagement.
Even with good sales operations and technological infrastructure, these companies can find themselves unable to attract their target audience. As an experienced sales professional, I have observed that companies face significant challenges when they neglect to prioritize their customers. One common struggle is the inability to attract their target audience effectively, resulting in missed opportunities for growth and revenue.
