In periods of economic uncertainty focusing your limited resources where they will have the most impact is critical to maintaining a healthy business. However, reprioritizing which leads your sales and marketing teams should target and engaging them with relevant messaging can be both challenging and time consuming. With the right technology intelligence embedded in your CRM or MAP, you can identify the best accounts and leads quickly and easily, and reach out to them with hyper-targeted messaging.
Technology intelligence reveals in-depth insights about your prospects that go beyond traditional firmographic lead and account scoring criteria. With technology intelligence you can dig deep and prioritize prospects based on their technology adoption fingerprint. For example, you can segment your prospects based on whether they are using a competing or complementary technology product to yours, whether they are a late or early adopter of SaaS applications, and even how much they are spending in specific areas of IT.
Having these unique insights allows you to better understand your audience and reach out to them with a message that they are more likely to respond to because it directly addresses their specific pain points during economic disruptions. With the right prospects prioritized, it also makes it easier to deliver more MQLs, create better sales and marketing alignment, and convert leads to sales.
