Everything you need to broaden & strengthen customer relationships while creating meaningful differentiation. 

Teamraderie Experiences Improve Pipeline Conversion Rates and Accelerate Deals

Every sales cycle in your pipeline will benefit from adding stakeholders, deepening trust, and showcasing your differentiation. A thoughtful customer event — selected to reinforce your message — creates a vivid, tangible point of difference.

We want all our pipeline deals to have in-person experiences. However, these happen less often than ever.

In-person sales meetings can build rapport and trust, leading to higher pipeline conversion rates.
  • Face-to-face meetings are the most effective way to close deals in the B2B space. According to SalesHacker, 40% of face-to-face meetings resulted in closed-won deals compared to just 16% by phone call.
  • The Journal of Social Psychology found face-to-face meetings create a shared buyer-to-seller experience
However, in-person interactions happen less often than ever.
  • Salesforce.com reports its customers have fewer in-person sales meetings. They report $50k SaaS deals dropped from 32% closed-won deals in 2019 to just 16% in 2022.
  • Deloitte reports business travel has declined 24% from 2019 to 2022.
Unfortunately, some revenue teams adopted poor substitutes, given the change in customer behavior
Some reps chose to fly to meet one person, which creates stratified meetings that do not bring buying committees together.
Other reps opt to not travel at all – resulting in buying committees that never meet and deals that never close.

The most forward-thinking CROs have found a new way to engage senior buyers and gather stakeholders to ensure deals close on-time.

Teamraderie is where account teams find, book, and customize experiences that improve revenue outcomes.

Before you begin to plan a customer event, you need to really understand your customer. What must they get past to succeed? What are their biggest pain points and challenges? This will help you tailor your messaging and event schedule.

Once you’ve identified your customer’s challenge, choose one or more of your core values that best align with solving this need. These values guide how you serve others. Consider which values are most relevant to your customer and how you can incorporate them into your event.

Now, it’s time to select a Teamraderie experience that helps you move your customers forward. The key is to select an experience that both aligns with your values and meets your client’s needs. We have several recommended experiences below, or you can browse all experiences here.

Teamraderie experiences are live, engaging, and hosted by approachable experts.
