B2B SaaS Revenue Growth: How to Accelerate Sales Velocity

Three Reasons Why Sales Velocity is Your Key Metric

1. You can always understand your current position

2. You’ll know where you want to go with your business

3. You’ll get extra revenue

Five Key Reasons Why Your Sales Pipeline is Slow

1. Poor decision-making strength

2.Low resources

3. Trying to avoid change

4. Troubles with closing deals

  • No focus on the client. Don’t focus on closing. Focus on your client’s needs and wants. Listen to them. Resolve sales objections. Frame your solution based on their wants and needs.
  • No storytelling. Share customer success stories. This way, you help prospects imagine their own success with your service/product. Also, stories empower your sales pitches. They trigger positive emotions and hormones associated with them. Stories earn customer trust as well.
  • Too forceful closing. When you pressure people to buy before they’re prepared, you may force them off entirely. Rather than closing as fast as possible, concentrate on relationship development. This way, you’ll get long-term clients.

5. Not utilizing the right CRM
