Is Outbound Mundane?

Partners in Excellence

In reading an article about the latest hints and tips in using AI for prospecting, a sentence stood out to me. It talked about how “mundane” outbound is.

How Our Veterinarian Can Help Improve Your Win Rate

Understanding the Sales Force

Back in August, I wrote an article about Dinger’s torn ACL and how the Veterinarian went about her sales process to strongly recommend (sell us) the most expensive surgery. She also set expectations by telling us that when a dog tears one ACL, it’s not uncommon for them to tear the other ACL. When Dinger was fully recovered from his surgery, and on the very first day he was allowed to chase a ball, he tore the other ACL while he was returning the ball to me.
