By: Aedan Robbert

It has always been a tremendous challenge to build a business in this highly competitive market. Things can get even tougher if you are unable to sell your products or solutions to your prospective clients. Sales function of any company plays a key role in building a thriving business. Unfortunately, if not surprisingly, a significant number of new business managers and company owners do not spend enough resources or place enough importance on B2B appointment setting services and thereby, sales.

There is absolutely no doubt that business owners need to spend resources on building a sales force that is robust and efficient, in order to kick-start their business effectively and ensure prospects and high morale for continued and steady business growth. However, if it is simply unfeasible to bring in a highly skilled and experienced sales team and a sales manager, then applying certain basic B2B appointment setting tips can help new business managers and business owners to increase demand generation and quality business sales opportunities. Once basic introduction and the reason for contacting the business prospect have been dealt with; important qualifying questions need to be made and answered. However, before contacting a prospect, your business team needs to have clear definitions which will make your prospect client to qualify as a potential client or customer. If you are not sure about what to look for in a customer or what your potential customer requires or desires then the business outcome with the potential prospect will not be successful.

If your company’s sales team has agreed on the qualifying questions and qualifying definitions to ask business prospects, then the next objective would be to focus on appointment setting goals. Your sales team needs to motivate the prospects in order to set an appointment with your business team so that they can learn more about the benefits of your products and services.

Here are certain tips about the B2B demand generation process:

 When speaking with your prospect, use sincere and clear language.
 Ensure that your company's message is conveyed to your prospects clearly for better understanding about your business solutions.
 It is important that your sales team does not impose a business meeting upon the prospect, as it is assumed that an interested prospect would be willing to learn about the benefits of the business offerings and solutions. Your business representative can propose a friendly meeting according to the convenience of the prospect.

Without a clear message on product and service benefits and without the proper qualifying questions or definitions for business prospects, B2B demand generation process can become a really challenging task. It is essential for any start-ups to improve the process of appointment setting; especially those which do not possess sufficient resources to employ a highly skilled and experienced sales team. It has to be mentioned here that according to a B2B market survey of 2012, 48% of client-side B2B marketers expect that their budget for B2B marketing will increase in the next 12 months.
