The company

Socloz is a commerce digitalisation platform, offering a comprehensive omnichannel platform enabling Click & Reserve, Click & Collect and Express Click & Collect, with the aim of generating traffic in stores. Socloz also helps improving the conversion rate on the sales floor thanks to Store to Web, Express payment and Clienteling.

The challenge

Suxeed worked with Socloz in the midst of the Covid health crisis and the subsequent economic crisis in the retail sector. The main objective of our collaboration was to maintain the revenues of the company by generating as many new business opportunities as possible with major French retail players.

The solution

In order to achieve these goals, we implemented dedicated go-to-market, targeting and evaluation strategies. To build these strategies, we translated Socloz’s vision into a clear conquest strategy and a powerful sales message that will resonate with their target. 

We then built the “sales playbook”, summarizing all the information about Socloz and the main selling points. It contains custom email templates and sequences, call scripts, best answers to prospect objections and a qualification script to help discover needs. 

This playbook is given to the BDR. With years of experience in B2B phone hunting, they love their work and are driven by their determination and their desire to excel. Full-time dedicated to Socloz and educated on the market, they quickly mastered the product and adopted an expert approach. With the help of the best prospecting softwares and the playbook, they were able to implement the strategy developed earlier without wasting time, and make several hundred calls a day for more results.

In order to allow BDR to stay focused on the calls, we have generated their leads, managed their email sequences and automated repetitive tasks. We have created a list of qualified leads in agreement with the criteria established upstream with Socloz, and enriched it with phone contacts, emails, and other important data.

Our conclusion

We were able to observe that in the case of a company that has been present for a decade in an already mature and competitive market such as Socloz, it is still possible to generate close to a hundred opportunities in one year by implementing an appropriate outbound sales strategy. With the right Business Developer, the right tools and the right sales strategy, Socloz has been able to maintain a healthy sales pipeline in the retail market whilst in the midst of the Covid period.
