Marketing campaigns are a great start to demand generation, but they won’t generate all the leads you need to grow your business. You need a mix of marketing and sales strategies to attract and convert new prospects.
Join Kendra Lee, prospect attraction expert and author of the award winning books The Sales Magnet and Selling Against the Goal and discover:
• 4 actions your sales team can take to uncover leads immediately
• 2 powerful website additions that will create new opportunities
• 2 marketing tactics that will differentiate your company
• The 2 keys to successful lead follow-up
New technologies and applications are driving fascinating and profitable opportunities for enterprising business owners. At the same time, status quo has never been more dangerous. What made you successful in the past may not move the needle in the future.
How do you purposefully build and execute on new opportunities? How do you prevent your business from being a causality in this rapidly changing business environment?
This session will show you the success formulas for building a healthy revenue pipeline that avoids risky marketing schemes and drives “sales ready” conversations for higher lead to sale conversions.
Take a journey thru the three deployment options made available thru the Connect solution and what “connects” them all together. Experience a live demo of the Connect Client to learn how it transcends and unifies CLOUD, ONSITE and HYBRID. Next, we will review the top three advantages of each deployment model and end with examples of how/why we won in each of these disciplines.
ShoreTel is ramping up its Contact Center business in 2016 by launching multichannel Connect Contact Center for CLOUD. This solution is designed for mid-market customers who need a robust set of features for an affordable price. It includes inbound voice, outbound voice, email and chat. We will focus greatly on unifying Connect Contact Center and Flex Contact Center throughout 2017.
The session will also cover practical measures to increase revenue in the mid-market contact center solution on CLOUD. Join us to learn about the contact center enhancements made this year and planned changes in the coming year.
As our customers continue to expand their usage of technology to increase the efficiency and competitive edge of their businesses, their technical requirements for a comprehensive unified communication solution have also expanded. Integration with CRMs, data driven call routing, and full functionality with suites such as Google apps are examples of features that are core customer requirements rather than optional extras.
ShoreTel Advanced Applications allow us to ask our customers: How do you sell? How do you service? What are the returns on your marketing campaigns? And to then enable them to do all of these things better.
Connect is more than a cloud or premised-based solution. Connect CLOUD, Connect ONSITE and Connect HYBRID provide a solution that doesn’t force your customer to choose one deployment method. Connect provides you with the ability to leverage all three deployment methods to be able to meet each customer’s specific business needs and challenges.
Please join this session to learn how to leverage Connect during the buyer’s journey to create a differentiated solution that will address your customers’ desired outcomes. We will review discovery, demo and design elements to be able to play offense and put the competition on defense. We will reserve time for a Q&A session with several of our Senior Solutions Architects.
The Connect Solution provides your existing ShoreTel premise and Sky customers with several great migration options; Connect CLOUD, ONSITE and HYBRID. Customers can migrate from Sky to Connect CLOUD, ST 14.2 to Connect CLOUD or ONSITE, and ONSITE customers can leverage several HYBRID services. The breadth and depth of the options Connect provides allows you to treat the migration process as a business consultant and add significant value and stickiness to your current customer relationships.
This session will outline the considerations and business opportunities available with Connect migrations. We will discuss technical, operation, user experience and strategies with tactics that you can employ with your existing customers.
