One of the keys to a successful sales team today is understanding as much as you can about your prospective buyers’ interests so you can send them tailored messaging and get a relevant and timely conversation started.
My name is Terrance Kwok, and this is another episode of Vidyard Chalk Talks, and in this Chalk Talk episode, we’ll be talking about how your sales team can use video to better understand what their buyers are interested in so that they can send that tailored messaging out and get those tailored, relevant, and timely conversations started.
