Your guide to outsourcing sales development.

Is it time to grow your business and sell fast, but you don't have the time or the budget to hire a sales team?

Then outsourcing sales is the move you want to make.

For a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time, in-house sales development representative (SDR), you can outsource to a specialized firm and find a rock-star rep for your company.

By choosing to outsource, you are making a wise and calculated decision that ensures you can focus on other essential aspects of your business while simultaneously securing the sales expertise you need. It's a win-win scenario that drives growth and provides an avenue for your startup's success.

Let's delve into how to get this done.

What is an Outsourced SDR?

An outsourced Sales Development Representative (SDR) is a sales professional who works for a third-party company or service provider and generates and qualifies leads for another company or startup.

The primary function of an SDR is to identify potential customers or clients who may be interested in a product or service offered by the client company. Once potential leads are qualified, they are handed off to the client's sales team for further engagement and conversion.

In addition to all of these daily tasks, they also perform research, receive and send feedback, and are instrumental in raising the brand awareness of you and your company.

The difference is that they do it all without needing an extensive and long hiring process!

An outsourced SDR from a company is typically part of a monthly payment plan: they get paid by their company. This means that you do not have to account for additional costs and that your SDR can be from anywhere in the world.

As they usually work remotely, outsourced SDRs generally keep clients updated via email, notifying them of meetings, and having weekly check-in calls.

Their flexibility is key to their success. Outsourced SDRs are able to try out new strategies constantly, offering immediate feedback to the client regarding the reception of their company. They can leverage social media, try different scripts for cold outreach, and instantly pivot or shift their approach.

They are masters of their craft and unafraid to try different things. An in-house hire will typically second-guess and feel as if they need to run everything by a superior first.

Not so your outsourced talent.

But if you're not sure yet, here are some more reasons to consider outsourcing your sales talent right now.

Why Outsource Sales Development?

1- Save Time to Focus On Other Aspects of Your Company

The first reason has already been mentioned: you are able to obtain a quality SDR without going through a long hiring process.

It saves you time and gives you space to focus on other aspects of your company. Consider that with an outsourced SDR found through a quality outsourcing company, you save yourself at least 28 days of the hiring process.

Now imagine what you could do with all that time: close more deals, improve your product, and create new products – the possibilities are endless.

And all because you decided to outsource instead of hiring yourself.

2- No Need For Extensive Training or Onboarding

Outsourced SDRs will also hit the ground running: they need little to no onboarding or training, simply the specifics of your goals and principal product.

They can swiftly construct the ideal customer profile and identify your perfect prospects using their expertise. From there, they can build the ideal customer profile and start hunting down the right prospects for you. They are familiar with most sales tools, and will seamlessly integrate with your existing systems, reducing any friction in the process.

And this is all possible because outsourced SDRs are experienced SDRs.

3- Experienced SDRs Get Quicker Results

You will see the effect of an experienced SDR on your pipeline a lot faster. Experienced SDRs are familiar with rejection, moving past it, and re-strategizing constantly – key qualities in any good SDR. Newer reps will take some time to truly get up to speed – time you may not have if you're seeking to grow quickly or need feedback.

On the other hand, newer representatives may require additional time to fully grasp the role's nuances - time that may be limited if your objective is rapid growth or prompt feedback is essential.

An outsourced SDR is your answer, then.

4- Outsourced SDRs Will Always Be Friendlier for Your Budget

Finally, the bottom line is that an outsourced SDR is cost-effective in a way an in-house SDR will rarely be.

The SDR role is notoriously difficult to fill for long periods of time. You don't want this to happen.

Imagine: you have spent time and money setting up a hiring process. You hired the right salesperson. You spent time and money again onboarding them and training them.

You waited the customary six months to measure their effect on your pipeline…only for your rep to jump ship at the five-month mark.

It can end up being an absolute drain on your resources that you are not even sure paid off.

Instead, by outsourcing, you have a dedicated sales outsourcing company behind your reps. You know who to turn to in case anything goes wrong, and you can even have a new SDR whenever needed. You simply pay a monthly fee instead of having to take on the brunt of the expenses upfront, without any clear indication it will be worth it.

Outsourcing has been proven to save money for companies. And if you're looking to grow quickly without spending too much money or time, outsourcing your SDR is the right way to go.

But how to do it?

Don't worry, we've got your back.
