There are a lot of factors which affect which sales person is the right one for you

As a 20-seat contact centre, hiring the right salespeople is a very real issue which we’ve faced from the start. The problem is that there’s a lot of moving parts which influence how a specific salesperson will perform in a specific role;

  • Office vs field
  • The data they’re calling – cold vs warm
  • Inbound vs Outbound
  • New Business vs Account Management
  • Industry specific experience
  • Sales Manager Personality
