Outbound Lead Generation 2022: we booked 728 meetings for our clients

Great Outbound Lead Generation is all about providing small chunks of value to people who personally benefit from it. The rest is experience and a bit of technology.

Early 2020, COVID fundamentally collapsed the way most of us connect and network with new potential buyers. Meanwhile, many are concluding that this ‘temporary’ disruption will have longer term effects on business development and business relationship building.

With the learnings from various COVID impacts (WFH, asynchronous decision making, not in-person meetings, changes in strategy and priorities) we radically adjusted our well-established sales machine into a multi channel outbound lead generation machine that produced 361 meetings in year one.

We learned about the importance of campaign post-mortem analysis every to improve and optimize the lead generation machine in order to increase the meeting conversion rate (yield).

The Lead Generation Machine

Right from the early days of BizXpand in 2010, our clients are still international SaaS, software and IT service companies, that want to systematically gain more customers in the German speaking markets and beyond. They all have high-ticket offers. Characteristics of “high ticket” are:

  • consultative selling
  • multi-touch
  • several decision makers/influencers
  • long sales cycles
  • targets are mid size and large enterprises

 

2022 Results

  • We reached out to 65512 decision makers and decision influencers.
  • We carried out 140 outbound campaigns.
  • We served for 32 clients.
  • We booked 728 meetings for them!
