SaaS Labs launches hotly anticipated Dialworks to help sales teams get battle-tested

SaaS Labs

Training sales teams is arguably the most important part of any business strategy, yet it remains a time intensive and expensive exercise for teams in all companies. According to HBR, US companies spend over $70 billion annually on training, and an average of $1,459 per salesperson, only to generate disappointing ROI. Meanwhile, Gartner research suggests that sales reps forget 70% of the information they learn within a week of training, and 87% will forget it within a month. Today, SaaS Labs has launched the highly anticipated Dialworks, a sales acceleration platform to help teams get sales-ready faster. Through calls on Dialworks platform, leaders can test their reps' sales readiness in real world scenarios. SaaS Labs, makes solutions fit for the sales and customer support community in businesses around the world. Having powered tens of millions of phone calls for sales and support teams with their category leading cloud phone platform JustCall, sales training was the next big challenge on the horizon for SaaS Labs. “We found the sales training approach in companies today remains archaic and an old school style classroom playbook approach. This method isn’t fit for purpose in 2022 and no one is really spotlighting this or innovating in the space other than moving from text learning to video-based learning” commented Gaurav Sharma, CEO of SaaS Labs. “We’ve taken it upon ourselves to address the issue and create Dialworks to offer a relevant alternative to teams around the world to harness their sales talent. Using insights from our over 6,000 customers who use our customer support product JustCall, we identified that sales training was a huge issue in addressing customer needs. We analyzed thousands of calls, call analytics and rep performance and found that the only way to improve selling was to create training tools that ramped up learning by mimicking an actual workflow as closely as possible. Dialworks emerged from this insight with a clear aim of creating a sales coaching program that actually works and delivers for teams.” Dialworks is an on-demand sales training platform that replicates real-life scenarios for sales reps to train and upskill. With Dialworks, reps can connect with customers just like theirs, deliver pitches and get actionable feedback to improve. From objection handling and analytics to tailoring training regimens, the platform is aimed to help sales coaches do it all including: Eliminate hundreds of manager man hours wasted in mock calls Mimic real call scenarios replicating the job environment Monitor performance and get customer feedback at scale on pitching skills Generate tailored insights to help design better training programs Share feedback at scale and eliminate biases in hiring Tim Bauer, Senior Vice President at Allied Restoration Services added: “I absolutely loved the first release and can't wait to try out the successive releases. Dialworks gives an exposure to how things are like in the field and helps trainees feel and be productive and proficient in a much shorter training cycle. It saves thousands of hours for my top sellers which would otherwise be spent in helping new reps learn the ropes. The key thing it offers is the immediate feedback loop on their performance and helps them improve faster instead of wasting time on ineffective textbook techniques”.

Social Media Winners of the Champions League Final

BetXpert

BetXpert has collected data for which players in the Champions League final that got the highest number of new followers across Instagram and Twitter. Continue reading to figure out which 10 players won the Champions League Social Media challenge. The Champions League season has just ended, with Real Madrid’s Vini Jr. scoring the only goal in the final match against Liverpool. Even though Vinicius Jr. scored the deciding goal, it was in fact their goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, being awarded the Man of the Match. Getting to the final was sometimes hard, with French striker Benzema getting a lot of attention during the playoffs. Benzema didn’t only play a big part of getting Real Madrid to the final; he also won the battle on the two Social Media platforms, Instagram, and Twitter. Data collected by BetXpert is showing the number of new followers gained on the two platforms, by every player, in the final. Firstly, we collected data directly after the respective semi-finals had been played on 3rd and 4th May. Thereafter, we collected data directly after the final, and then again after 12 hours had passed. We did this to see what a Champions League final and the players’ performance does when it comes to followers in social media. Performing well in the Champions League final will significantly increase the number of new followers, as shown below. Karim Benzema won the Instagram battle Benzema had the biggest increase in new followers on Instagram. He received a total of 2.8 million new followers from right before the semi-final and directly after the final. 12 hours later he had gained an additional 200.000 followers. Karim Benzema went from having 50.6 million followers on Instagram on May 4th to having 53.4 million after the final. This is an increase of 5,5%. Benzema is not the only one who could smile after seeing the number of followers gained after the final. See the list of the top 10 players who received the highest number of new followers on Instagram below. Benzema won the Twitter battle On Twitter Benzema went from having 15.2 million to 15.7 million followers after the final. That half a million new followers is only an increase of 3,3%. These are the players who got the highest number of new followers on Twitter between the Champions League semi-final and final. Instagram and Twitter combined As Benzema is the player with the highest number of new followers on both Instagram and Twitter, he is also the one winning the Social Media battle overall. The player with the highest number of followers overall is Marcelo, but he couldn’t get close to Benzema. However, which other players had success over the course? The table below shows us that especially Vini Jr. and and Rodrygo also received many followers. The two managers The team is more than the players, and with that in mind there is others that can happily look at what getting their team to the Champions League final can bring from social media. Read Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti went from having 7.4 million followers on Instagram to 7.8 million. On Twitter he went from 2.8 million to 2.9 million. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is not that interested in social media, which is why we do not have any numbers on him. On the other hand, we have the numbers for his club. Liverpool’s official Instagram account went from having 37.7 million followers to 38.7 million. On Twitter they went from 20.4 million to 20.6 million new followers. Some good results from Liverpool, even though Real Madrid is unbeatable on social media. Los Blancos started with 115 million followers on Instagram and 41.4 million on Twitter, to now 118 million and 42 million. Social Media is a gold mine For players that have a lot of followers on social media, it can be worth more than having the upper hand on your teammates. There are big amounts of money if you have enough followers. This is easy to see when Cristiano Ronaldo playing in Manchester United has 446 million followers on Instagram. They say he can pocket about 1.5 million GBP for a sponsored post. This amount of money is not what the players in the 2022 Champions League final is earning, but you can be sure the top 10 players in this article can smile whenever they post something sponsored on their accounts.

Why Influencer Marketing is Taking Over Online Advertising

TCM DIGITAL

TCM has launched NinjaInfluence, an all-in-one Influencer Marketing AI SaaS platform that provides an affordable yet powerful use of influencer marketing that enables eCommerce businesses to deal with increased ad costs and reduced marketing budgets due to unstable market sentiment. On Tuesday, May 24th, The Snap Company announced it will miss its projections due to decreased ad spending. The announcement triggered a spiral effect for most ad-driven super techs, such as Google and Facebook. This came as no surprise given the current environment, along with rising ad prices and macro headwinds likely to extend to every region of digital advertising. An article published by CNBC earlier this week states, “Social media companies were already having a rough year from the cutback in digital ad spending caused by rising inflation, supply chain challenges, and the war in Ukraine. Forecasts for the second quarter called for meager growth at best, and stock prices were getting hammered.” Following Snap’s disclosure, JMP Securities analysts shared, “Macro headwinds likely extend to all digital advertising.” They added that brand budgets, and especially digital ones, “are more at risk of being reduced as companies tighten ad budgets,” while direct response ads, or those that encourage viewers to take immediate action, are “more connected to consumer spend, particularly eCommerce.” Read the full CNBC article here. The eCommerce space is seeking alternative means to cut down advertising spending amid rising costs of social media ads in an environment that's highly volatile. Even now while ad costs rise, eCommerce has seen a massive uptick since the start of the pandemic, expected to total $5.55 trillion in 2022 and to grow by almost $11 trillion between 2021 and 2025. This increase can also be attributed to the effect of influenceres/online creators. An authentic and engaging presence online is critical to being disruptive in a saturated marketed experience. People want to be wowed, connect to something, and belong to a community. Enter influencers, a person valued by the audience much more than the classic pop-up ad. With such dedicated followings, you can shorten the sales cycle by standing apart from your competition. A strong brand doesn’t only optimize performance marketing in the short term but also makes it a source of sustainable growth. Stronger brands draw more organic acquisitions, retain more customers, and command higher sales. As the digital space becomes more crowded, brand identity and brand awareness will only become more crucial. When time is a critical commodity,one needs to be fast, agile, and ahead of its competitors. One needs to focus on brand equity and improve upon one's brand loyalty while maintaining one's ad spend. While inflationary pressure affects purchasing decisions, brands must strengthen their community reach and customer relationships. After spending over eight years operating within the eCommerce space both as an eCommerce seller and as a leading aggregator, we have experienced community creation, aptly named influencer marketing, first hand. But how do you go about finding the right influencers? Even if you do find the right influencers, how would you manage them, monetize, measure performance, and still be able to attend one's eCommerce business? Welcome to the solution of NinjaInfluence, TCM’s disruptive influencer marketing platform. With our dynamic and elastic AI search engine, we have curated a database of over 140 million influencers for you to filter and pinpoint the perfect brand representative. Each will be the champion brand ambassador and increase sales. Within the platform, you can conduct research, outreach, and campaign management along with tracking your real-time sales and social metrics. Even making payments to your influencers are just a click away using NinjaInfluence. You do not have to take the journey alone. Our team of Influencer Managers is here to oversee the entire process, from discovering and identifying the right influencer, to outreach and sending customized messages all the way to managing your entire marketing influencers funnel, your own dedicated Influencers Manager. With the assistance of the Influencer Manager, negotiate everything from partnership terms to campaign management as they set up eCommerce coupons, tracking links for sales, and social engagement. On June 1st at 9:00 am ET, the Ninjainfluence team will be conducting a live webinar. We invite you to join our live demonstration and roundtable discussion as we tackle the alternative means of online advertising and how to best engage with Influencers for the maximum outcome. To save your seat, click to register and write "Save my seat for the upcoming webinar." About NinjaInfluence NinjaInfluence is an influencer marketing software that supports users in easily managing their strategies and communicating with influencers/creators. Following up on its predecessor, NinjaOutreach, it provides access to over 140 million influencers across Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and Twitter. In addition to its established search engine, NinjaInfluence offers a multitude of features such as eCommerce integration, full analytics dashboards, smart search manager, internal payment platform, related profile recommendation engine and a consolidated CRM-like workspace.
