Growing Your Business
Using AI Technology
“The only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”
— Mark Zuckerberg, founder, Facebook
The pundits, all agree that the business model for most companies has forced them to adapt to a different world where they can grow and be profitable.
They also agree that enterprise and consumer behavior have also changed irrevocably.
The move to web-based solutions does not eliminate the need for people. The use of enabling technologies helps employees be more productive.
Many make great recommendations about the “What”; there is not much said about the “How?”
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
What it is: “Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer program or a machine to think and learn. It is also a field of study which tries to make computers “smart”. (Wikipedia)
What is does: process massive amounts of data from multiple sources to find what you want in real-time.
How: it can help improve productivity and results by generating a list of potential customers that meet your criteria more exactly. E.g. in the case of a business, by geography, area of activity or classification, size, number of employees, etc. Your commission salespeople will love the idea.
Who can help? Potent Leads with the power of AI!
Current Customer Prospecting
Potential customers were obtained through
Contact forms on your website
Cold calling obtaining list material from outside vendors, directories, trade shows, etc.
Unfortunately, the average “strike rate” in cold calling is somewhere between 1 – 3%
In mass email marketing, open rates vary but max out at 25% (content, targets, etc. can make this % much lower) But more definitive is the conversion rate which tops out at 5% i.e customers who take the requested action in your email
Conclusion: not a good use of people & money
