Inside Selling: Selling More at a Lower Cost

From: Gartner Group

The high cost of direct sales and heightened competition are forcing enterprises to examine channel effectiveness. The fully loaded costs of an inside salesperson are 35 percent of those of a direct (i.e. field) salesperson (industry outsourcing averages $80/hr versus $250 per standard selling hour), yet the inside salesperson has the capability to hit 70 percent of a direct field sales person's quota.

Therefore, inside sales will become an ever more strategic part of the sales effort. Inside sales will be central for traditional business-to-business and business-to-consumer selling models. A large and growing percentage of salespeople worldwide, who no longer see a customer at all, engage in complex selling.

Attractive and informative marketing tools are an enhancement for adding dimension to follow up stages.
  • The number of calls made per hour is directly affected by the type of script utilized; i.e. - qualification questions and/or the addition of survey type questions will require that each call take more time, which increases the result quality.

Sales & Marketing Report:

"Don't waste top salespeople on prospecting: the additional cost of dedicated prospectors is offset by two factors:
1) You will do a lot more prospecting and generate a lot more leads; and
2) Your top people will close sales at a much higher percentage, and not waste a lot of time cold calling and running down marginal leads."
