COMPANY GOALS

Service365, equipped with ambitious aspirations and a handful of clients, engaged TeamRevenue to build and execute an outbound sales model and a customer success program to onboard and service clients. Ensuring rapid product-market fit was vital not only for immediate growth but also to attract investments for their future growth plans.

CHALLENGES & OBSERVATIONS

As we began our engagement we uncovered the following challenges:

  • There was no real go-to-market strategy other than paying a third-party demand-generation company to send outbound emails to try and book appointments. 
  • Although the company had hired a sales manager, neither the founder nor the manager had any experience building sales teams, strategies, processes, or enabling sales technology. 
  • The customer success team had built an onboarding process from a spreadsheet with many detailed steps, but it was not integrated with any internal process or client records.
  • Being a start-up company, they had limited funds but needed to make a big impact fast and early. 
  • The company had hired a recent graduate with no prior sales experience to be their first and only business development representative (BDR).
GROWTH IMPACT & OUTCOMES
  • Service365 honed its product and messaging to resonate more effectively with its target audience, moving closer to product-market fit.
  • The outbound sales strategy yielded 29 new demos booked in the first two months. 
  • Within the first two months of engagement, the customer success playbook for Service365 was developed, automated, and enabled within the team to effectively support the client onboarding for their next two clients.

We added 29 new sales opportunities to our sales pipeline within the first 2 months of our program. TeamRevenue’s systematic approach accelerated the relevance of our start-up to our marketplace. We are delighted with the impact it created for our team.

THE APPROACH & SOLUTIONS
TeamRevenue partnered with Service365 as Fractional Sales Leaders. We got to work understanding Service365’s offering and leading and executing a go-to-market plan that aligned with the market demands. The plan involved:
  • defining their ideal customer profiles (industries, size of company, region, and use case for their solution)
  • defining  their buyer personas who typically make up the buying committee.
  • creating a messaging strategy to position Service365 in a way that resonates with potential customers
  • developing an outbound sales strategy was selected to capture additional product market fit feedback.
We built  and implemented the outbound sales process. This process included:

    Creating a Prospecting Plan

    A prospecting plan was designed based on the messaging strategy defined in the go-to-market strategy. The prospecting plan included:

    • Sales process development and a sales governance framework
    • Target account planning
    • Sales messaging templates that included:
      • a. Call Scripts
      • b. Talk tracks
      • c. Email templates
      • d. LinkedIn templates
    • An outbound sales motion with defined and measured touchpoints/li>
    • Objections and rebuttals template
    • Sales presentation deck
    • Training, enablement, and documentation of the entire sales prospecting process

    Implementing HubSpot CRM and Sales Automation

    With a strong messaging and sales process built, it was critical to implement the proper technology to support sales automation.  Since the company was also going to build a customer success program, HubSpot Sales & Service Hub was the selected technology.  The CRM was optimized and enabled with the following three steps:

    • Step 1: Planned the custom design to optimize the outbound sales process.
    • Step 2: Set up all automation and integrations to maximize sales effectiveness and KPI tracking.
    • Step 3: Enabled the sales team with the CRM training support needed for adoption.
Service365 had the initial framework of tasks associated with onboarding new customers. However, it was a spreadsheet-based template that didn’t consider the many moving pieces of a complete customer success program. To support their customer success journey, we helped them with the following:

    Mapping the Customer Journey

    Using a journey map to track customer interactions, we highlighted their motivations and challenges at each touchpoint to streamline and improve their overall experience with the company.

  • checkmark

    Customer Feedback Loop

    We implemented a survey feedback loop for every important touchpoint of the customer’s journey so Service365 can continuously improve its service.

  • checkmark

    Customer Onboarding

    We built a customer onboarding process built in HubSpot Service Hub to centralize, automate, and integrate their customer journey experience in a central platform for sales, customer success, and marketing to view and manage.

  • checkmark

    Enablement and Training

    We provided the  sales and customer success department with all the enablement and training resources needed to adopt the new customer success experience.  This included:

    • Instructor-led training and enablement support
    • Complete documentation of the customer success playbook
    • Ongoing support and optimization for the duration of the program.
