Selling has gotten infinitely harder in 2023.
Inboxes are flooded with generic email and video and content. Real personalization that drives engagement is rare. And deals are taking longer to close than ever before.
The problem is that seller’s don’t know nearly enough about their buyers. It’s not their fault, they don’t have enough time in their week to both build pipeline and close deals effectively. But the reality is that if you don’t completely know your buyers in and out and lead with value by attaching yourself to their pains, you don’t stand a chance at converting them into a customer.
Now if sellers wanted to take the time to get to know their buyers well enough, they have to spend countless hours away from building pipeline and working deals to do their own manual research. A catch-22 for some of the hardest working people in the business.
Well we’re glad to say that that’s not the case anymore.

But what exactly do Deep Dives give you insight into? Let’s dive in.
Have you ever had a meeting coming up only to realize you haven’t done a ton of prep? Well, sometimes you need quick access to important information about one of your accounts so you don’t fall on your face on that call.
Deep Dives give you a high-level summary of your account's core business, leadership, and strategic priorities so you can feel prepared and ready to go no matter where the conversation takes you.

Deep Dives give you insight into recent and planned investments – including business initiatives and product launches – so you can align your solution to the right pain points in your deals.
We now live in a world where you’ll need C-Suite approval for just about any new technology that an account is bringing into their stack. And because of that, a lot of deals are sitting on the desk of the CFO right now.
Deep Dives give you board level insight – including a breakdown of the top concerns and pain points that are top of mind for the leadership team within an account – so you can keep conversations focused on what they’re looking to achieve.
Intent is fine as a lagging indicator of where an account is in their buying journey. That’s because buyers often send out different types of signals well before the intent comes knocking. They come in the form of pain indicators, new projects and initiatives, hiring decisions, or the contents of a tech stack.
Deep Dives give you insight into these leading buying indicators so you always hit on the right things and get in front of your buyers before your competitors do.
Having a pulse on the market landscape of the accounts you’re targeting helps you better understand the space they play in.
