As Sales Professionals Demand More From Their Employers, Virtual BDRs Become A More Viable Alternative
LITTLETON, CO, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — We first discovered the concept of a Virtual Business Development Representative in 2018, while deploying outbound sales campaigns for several dozen clients. The business problem – sales reps come and go from companies, and they take their networks with them, sales professionals aren’t cheap, and most sales reps aren’t consistent with their daily outreach tasks. And a Virtual Business Development Representative doesn’t call in sick.
According to Chad Burmeister, CEO of ScaleX.ai, “Sales professionals today are expecting more and more from their employers than in years past. A recent example of a post I read is whether a sales professional should be paid 100% commission while on parental leave. 73% said yes, 27% said no.” (Link to the post on LinkedIn)
As employees demand more from their employees such as unlimited paid vacation time, 100% commissions paid whether actively selling or not, and other things, a Virtual BDR becomes a more and more viable alternative.
In a recent study by the ScaleX data analyst team:
-On average across a few dozen deployments, a Virtual BDR generates 64.1 warm introductions into 566 target accounts in under 90 days, when powered by Artificial Intelligence (Link to the analysis here)
-On average, a Virtual BDR executing LinkedIn outreach, generates a 29.5% reply rate on messages sent. A traditional in-house BDR often sends just a few LinkedIn requests/day, where a virtual BDR doesn’t call in sick, and executes all tasks that it was assigned for the day
