Inside Sales

Inside sales is the practice of selling products or services from an office or remote location using the telephone, email, and the internet rather than meeting face-to-face with customers. Research has shown that inside sales roles are growing 15 times faster than outside sales as technology enables sales teams to reach a wider audience more efficiently and at a lower cost than traditional field sales. 

Inside sales teams naturally rely on various digital tools and platforms to perform their functions. These include customer relationship management (CRM) systems, video conferencing, and social media to engage with prospects and clients. The method is particularly effective for B2B and high-ticket B2C transactions, where the sales process often involves multiple touchpoints and a more extended decision-making period.
