When can you celebrate a 30% success rate? For one, if you’re a premiere hitter in the baseball Hall of Fame. For two, if you’re on a world-class sales team. That’s about it.
No other field has a tolerance for a 70% (or higher!) failure rate. Certainly no other org in a successful business would get away with that success rate, let alone celebrated for it.
But we all know that losing comes with the sales territory… or so we have come to believe, because sales is hard. There are so many reasons why an AE might fail to close any given prospect that we practically expect failure more than two-thirds of the time. All that losing, however, comes at a cost. A cost that can be mitigated by knowing which prospects to go after—and which ones not to swing at. This report breaks it all down for you, and gives you guidance on how to shore up your strategy.
Every digital channel out there is saturated with marketing messages, making it difficult for you to stand out and capture your audience’s attention. If you’re running on a lean budget, it’s even more so.
With odds stacked against you—noisy channels, rocky economic climate—it’s tempting to focus purely on lead gen. But when you lose sight of your holistic demand gen strategy, you’re giving your competitors an open lane to pass you. That’s something you can’t afford.
Instead, implement tactics and strategies that will optimize your current lead gen efforts while fueling your long-tail game for success. This step-by-step guide will help you do both by showing you how to
- Refine your ICP and identify companies that *actually* match it
- Use exegraphic data to build campaigns messages that resonate
- Measure your aim
- And more!

- Build a better ICP with exegraphic data
- Improve your targeting
- Take a SWAT-style strategy to market expansion
- Stay ahead of churn by identifying early signals
- And more!

RevOps leaders like a good challenge—but times are particularly tough right now. Optimizing every channel—maximizing the efforts of every team member and every dollar—requires almost surgical precision. It’s not enough to rely on broad strategies that are bound to pull in a few good leads. Companies need to invest their resources on the right targets. “Almost-fits” are not close enough. Not anymore.
To enable higher-quality pipeline, your teams need to find the best-fit prospects with the highest propensity to engage. And, that starts with identifying true lookalike targets and getting more strategic about how you approach them.
Learn how exegraphic data—insights into how companies operate—can help you do just that.
Generating a pipeline of targets that match your ICP is a manual, time-consuming and—let’s be honest—random process. Guesswork becomes your strategy and can leave you with leads that clog your funnel, like that one deal that’s going to close any day but never does.
That’s why it’s so important to get the first mile of sales right: getting the right prospects into the funnel. After all, if you don’t, every step you take after is wasted.
