Examine the scoring approach and how it will change the way toward setting needs for outreach and follow up. In case you’re getting a great deal of pushback, utilize the information you’re utilizing for the premise of scoring to convince them.
This is something of an attempt to close the deal in itself, yet when you get purchase in at this stage, all the other things turns into significantly simpler.
