I am very passionate about sales and processes and I would like to share some amazing Sales Tools that I personally use to be more efficient and close more deals.

Sales Tool 1 – Sidekick 

Why is it so good? 

One of the hardships being in sales is that you send hundreds of emails and often don’t get any respons or feedback. It is tiring and many times you don’t know if anyone ever sees your emails. Sidekick is a solution to this problem.

What do I get?

  • The sales tools Daniel Nilsson from Sweden use - Sidekick See who opens and clicks your emails – Show you if someone received and opened an email. It works directly from Google mail, Apple mail and Outlook.
  • Profiles in your inbox – See relevant information for the receiver as you type in your inbox.
  • Schedule emails – Write emails now and send them later

What you get if you pay

  • Figure out your best performing sales emails – Create ready to go email templates for your most common emails and measure how efficient they are.
  • Know what content that closes deals – Upload documents to Sidekick, send it to your client and get notified when the document is opened and what pages that was viewed.
  • Follow up efficiently with Email sequences – Create multiple emails and then send them automatically in a sequence to a client.

Sales Tool 2 – Calendly  

Why is it so good? 

Ok lets schedule a meeting! And there you have it. It is just so cumbersome for both you and the client. You create 3 time slots send them to the client that don’t reply for two weeks and when they reply that time slot is already booked for another client. Do I need to continue? Calendly solves this issue to both you and your clients convenience.

What do I get?

  • Make it possible for clients to book a meeting with you easily – You client easily see your available time slots.
  • Automatic sync with your calendar – Automatic sync with your Office 365 or Google calendar.
  • Automatic booking –  When your client find a time slot it is one click, fill in some information and then click OK. A meeting invite is automatically sent out and both the client and you have the meeting in your calendars.

What you get if you pay

  • More than one meeting type – With the paid version you can have several different meeting types that can be booked.
