What is inside sales and how does it differ from outside sales?
Inside sales is often confused with telemarketing and telesales. Whilst some of the practices surrounding these traditional business tactics are used as part of an inside sales program, they are not the be-all-and-end-all of the inside sales model. Whereas a telesales agent is focussed on a do or die attitude to every call, the inside sales team are utilising their expert knowledge and a variety of sales enablement tools to conduct an end-to-end b2b sales process.
HubSpot define inside sales as:
“Inside sales reps remotely work with their potential customers to guide them through the sales process, ensuring they find an adequate product or service that helps the customer solve their problem”
Inside sales teams are fast becoming the new sales model for companies in B2B, SaaS and tech markets. Field sales teams have been steadily adopting remote selling tools, such as web conferencing and online demonstrations, as a means to increase sales efficiency and reduce the cost of sale. In a digital-first world the outside sales teams are selling remotely on a daily basis, and during the current crisis this transition from the outside to the inside is set to accelerate.
