WINTER GARDEN, Fla., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — “Opening relationships, closing sales” is the motto for SalesBond (http://www.salesbond.com), a new, cloud-based product designed to make for easier and more efficient selling. SalesBond works by scouring the Internet and social networks for publicly available information on a potential client’s hobbies, interests, preferences, work history and more. The product is currently in the beta signup phase; testing will begin near the end of 2013. After completion of beta testing, SalesBond will go live in early 2014. Those interested in seeing how the system works firsthand are encouraged to sign up at http://beta.salesbond.com/.
“SalesBond was developed to help sales representatives relate to their potential clients on a personal level. We wanted this tool to build trust between sales representatives and their clients and take the pressure off of the sales engagement,” explains a SalesBond representative. “Nobody wants products being pushed on them during their lunch hour; people want to talk about things that they enjoy, things that they are interested in and not the same topic for six hours. Knowing what they like, what they are interested in, and being able to work these into your sales engagement will go a long way and perhaps even gain a lifelong customer.”
When provided with a minimal amount of data, such as name and phone number, SalesBond produces a detailed dossier of potential clients. No prior contact with a client is necessary. By suggesting topics for conversation, SalesBond helps users to build immediate rapport with new clients, a far better approach than overwhelming them with a fast and furious sales pitch.
Because SalesBond is in the cloud, it can be accessed anywhere on any device, a bonus for frequent business travelers. The product works on any browser and with any email client. SalesBond also dovetails perfectly with existing CRM systems, enabling straightforward data import and export. To help maintain a relationship, SalesBond continually tracks client information; should the client’s interests shift, his or her dossier will be updated accordingly.
About SalesBond LLC
SalesBond was established by individuals with over 14 years in the computer security space. While attending many sales engagements as technical advisors, we would find ourselves looking up information about the client we were meeting. We would often work these pieces of information into our conversations with the client and built a fantastic rapport with them. They were flattered and we still, to this day, continue to engage in dialogue. We wanted to build a tool for sales and marketing representatives that would not only save them incredible amounts of precious time but also take the guesswork out of data collection and building rapport. Something they could access anywhere they had Internet access and so, SalesBond was born.
