Even though the pandemic seems to be slowly dying down, many businesses have made major changes because of it.
Companies that never even envisioned selling remotely have now experienced various ways to sell online and even completely shifted the way that they sell. Despite society returning back to normal, many of these businesses will continue the way of remote selling in the future.
If you belong to those groups, here are some of the very best remote selling tools you can try to close even more sales without leaving your office or home.
Business proposals are one of the crucial elements of winning new deals. From solopreneurs and freelancers all the way to Fortune 500 companies, a business proposal is a necessary step in most sales processes. Up until now, writing them was a tedious and painstakingly long process.
Until proposal software came, that is. Better Proposals lets you create, manage and send business proposals in the cloud. Don’t spend hours writing them – start from a template and get done in 15 minutes. Moreover, you’ll never wonder what happens after you hit “send” – Better Proposals has notifications every time someone opens, reads and signs a proposal.
Make it easy to get approval from clients thanks to electronic signatures that can be done straight from the proposal. Moreover, clients can pay immediately as well, thanks to integrations with Stripe, Paypal and GoCardless.
Plans start at $19 per month, giving you everything you need to boost your sales in one affordable package.
Landlines are a thing of the past and business VoIP is a new reality. Instead of making calls through your phone, make them through your laptop, cell phone, or any other device using CloudTalk. Thanks to this app, you can create a massive call center operation no matter where your employees are located.
CloudTalk has outbound call center features focusing on sales only. This includes a power dialer that does all the hard work while agents sit back and call. Live coaching helps managers hop on the call and help your agents, thanks to call barging (where they take the call over) and call whispering (where the customer can’t hear the manager – just the agent).
For those with advanced needs, the sales reporting dashboard will give you all the data you need. Which agents have the best conversion rates, what the best time for a call is, how many leads are called per day and more. And to supercharge your efficiency, CloudTalk integrates with your favorite CRM, so agents have all the customer data they need right on their screens.
Prices start at 20EUR per user per month – a small investment for a superb remote selling tool.
Video is an incredibly powerful way to connect with your customers in an era where meeting up in person isn’t all that easy. Besides regular video calls, webinars are another great way to show video content to your customers, educate them, show your products/services/results and close some sales.
The great thing about this webinar tool is that you can use it on a variety of devices and in a plethora of different ways. Start a live stream from a link sent in an email or embed your webinar directly into your website – you can choose where you want to lead your audience.
Connect your webinar attendees to your marketing apps so they’re never lost in your sales funnel again. Mailchimp, ActiveCampaign, Klaviyo, Moosend, are just some of the many tools you can use combined with LiveWebinar to grow your email lists and get more sales.
At $11.99 per month, you’ll get up to 100 attendees per webinar, making this a fantastic value for money for both new and seasoned remote sales teams.
While the newly remote situation changed a few things for the worse, it opened up a world of possibilities as well. Sales teams can now discover amazing tools that allow them to sell anything from their homes to customers from all over the globe.
