Creating a structured sales cadence is vital when prospecting for new business.  If you don’t follow up leads, or adopt a haphazard approach then they are less likely to convert into sales.  A sales cadence is a series of activities where you contact a person or organisation to persuade them to buy your product or service.  The activities can range from phone calls, emails and social media messages to personal video messages and SMS.  It’s a good idea to test what works best, for the method of communication and the timing of each contact point.

This example from Cognism demonstrates how they introduced a rigorous sales cadence workflow for B2B lead generation, starting with a LinkedIn connection but using other contact methods to increase engagement and deliver results.  They tested various approaches and then once they found the most successful cadence they implemented it for all B2B prospecting.

This article from Hubspot reinforces the importance of scalability for sales cadences, and having a documented, structured workflow.  This makes the process much more efficient and effective, leading to an increased success rate.

Using automation to create a seven day sales cadence when a new deal is added to Pipedrive reduces manual effort and limits human error.  You will never send the same email twice by mistake, or forget a step in the process.

 

Our video for automating a sales cadence of activities in Pipedrive

We created a video to show how easy it is to automate a sales cadence of activities in Pipedrive for new deals using Zapier.

These are the steps in the video:

  • The trigger step is the creation of a new deal in Pipedrive.
  • We then add a filter step to map to the sales pipeline.
  • We then create steps for each activity in the sales cadence, the first of which is a phone call after 2 hours.
  • The next activity is an email on day 2.
  • Then we add an SMS on day 3.
  • Then a LinkedIn message on day 5.
  • Finally, we schedule a phone call on day 7.

When this zap is activated the sales cadence will be created for every new deal in Pipeline, saving manual effort and ensuring that the same process is followed every single time.
