Is Your Tech Stack Actually Improving Sales Engagement?

A CRO’s Thought on Leveraging Technology to Enhance Customer Engagement and Boost Sales

As a Chief Revenue Officer, you are always exploring ways to harness technology to improve our engagement with customers and boost sales. Here, our team wanted to share a few transformative strategies that can significantly enhance your interactions with customers, making your team’s efforts more efficient and effective.

  1. Leverage CRM to Personalize Interactions

No surprise - Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems are incredibly powerful in maintaining detailed customer profiles. But what is often missed by teams is spending a bit more time to personalize interactions with what you know about a customer or prospect. By instilling this discipline and utilizing your data effectively, you can and should personalize every communication. It is not a substitute for live customer touch, but between those opportunities, your smart personalization increases the likelihood of close and repeat business.

  1. Utilize Chatbots for Efficiency

Integrating AI-driven chatbots can significantly improve your responsiveness. Moreover, they can really aid in collecting information you need to sort through who are the highest value targets. You simply cannot afford to engage every prospect. Bots, when thoughtfully deployed, can manage routine inquiries and support tickets, freeing up time to focus on more complex queries and personalized customer service. But most importantly, give customers a clean exit point and quickly get them to a live human. Think of it like a modern phone IVR, there is nothing more frustrating than screaming “agent” when a customer knows the automation cannot help them – we have all been there.

  1. Optimize Mobile Interactions

With more consumers than ever using mobile devices for everything from shopping to seeking support, optimizing our mobile presence is non-negotiable. This means having a responsive website design, a user-friendly mobile app, and features that make interactions quick and satisfying, like one-click ordering or easy-access help features. But here too, you need to have the customer in mind and let them choose how they want to interact. Mobile should be about convenience, not a substitute or deflection technique to lower your costs per so. Think about it this way - if you save 10% on cost to serve, but lose a 30% upsell opportunity, who loses now? Check the mirror.

  1. Drive Engagement Through Automated Email Campaigns

Email marketing continues to be a powerful tool for nurturing leads and keeping customers engaged. By automating email campaigns, we can deliver timely, relevant content that speaks directly to our customer's needs and interests. Segmentation further allows us to tailor our messages based on user behavior, ensuring that we are not just sending information, but relevant offers that encourage further interaction. But here again, think about the off-ramp. Once a customer buys or is clear with you about their disinterest, stop that path right away. How frustrating is it when you unsubscribe, only to get a message that says ‘it may take several weeks’ to be removed, or worse, you never are removed. It is permanent brand damage when a customer or prospect thinks you are brain damaged.


Nothing here is likely earth-shattering. Implementing these technologies can streamline our operations but also significantly enhance the customer experience. Each step forward with these tools brings us closer to a more engaged, satisfied customer that contributes to our ongoing growth and success. But as noted at each turn, design and live the experience as a customer yourself. As a revenue leader, do not leave this solely to your team without inspection or challenge.


That said, you are busy and often these can be time-consuming and detailed investments. Sometimes it is best to bring in outside help that can not only inspect but rethink your CX and your engagement approach. Acknowledge can help. Connecting with our experts can help you inspect what you expect and shake things up.
