In the Transform Sales Podcast #46, Cloud Task's Amir Reiter spoke to Rick Pizzoli, Founder and CEO of Sales Force Europe, about common mistakes buyers make when looking to hire a sales agency.
Pizzoli started by highlighting the importance of having a solid plan in place before you start your search. This includes understanding your sales goals, target market, and budget. Once you have a clear plan, you can start to narrow down your list of potential agencies.
When evaluating agencies, Pizzoli recommends looking at their experience, track record, and methodology. It's also important to make sure that the agency has a good understanding of your industry and target market.
Once you've found a few agencies that you're interested in, be sure to schedule interviews. This will give you a chance to learn more about their team, their approach, and how they would work with you to achieve your sales goals.
Pizzoli also stressed the importance of treating your sales agency as an integral part of your team. This means providing them with regular feedback, access to your resources, and the opportunity to collaborate with other departments.
By avoiding common mistakes and following Pizzoli's tips, buyers can increase their chances of finding and hiring the right sales agency for their needs.
