Persistence Counts with Prospects

Persistence Counts with Prospects

Successful SDRs know persistence counts when reaching target prospects.

When doing sales development, the industry best practice is to make 6-9 attempts over a 10-14 day period to create a 90%-93% chance of making contact with them. In fact, the chance of making contact with prospects increases with each attempt. For example, 37% on attempt one versus 90% on attempt six. The problem is that most SDRs give up too soon, generally after 2-3 attempts. In contrast, successful SDRs approach each target prospect knowing that making six attempts (or more) may be required of them. Persistence counts with prospects.
