Why hire an in-house sales team when you can just outsource it to an established authority that specializes in online sales?
Yes, the latter might be a better choice for some of you, so meet RipeLeads, an “end-to-end sales-conversion process & management solution” … that take care of it all. The company announced today that it has raised $3.36 million for its first round of Angel funding.
RipeLeads has a small army of sales lead specialists armed with sophisticated tools, experience and training to find customers, populate your CRM, qualify your leads, and even reach out to leads with customized conversion driven sales pitches. All you have to do is sign up, you do not even need a CRM system, so you can access the work your mini-sales team is doing for you 24/7.
Now this does come with a price tag: from $2,999 per month for up to 700 leads to $6,999 per month for up to 2,000 leads.
Alternatively, you could go the old-fashioned way and just purchase predictive lead-scoring software such as 6Sense, Fliptop, Infer, Lattice, Leadspace, Mintigo, Salesfusion, and many others. Or you can get help from some more general outsourcing places such as hiring folks from Elance, oDesk, or Clickworker, for example.
Sierra Ventures led the round, with Initialized Capital (Alexis Ohanian, Garry Tan, and Aaron Harris of Y Combinator), Kapor Capital, Fuel Capital, FundersClub, Scott Banister, and existing investors Sam Altman, 500Startups, Scrum Ventures, CRCM, and Bee Partners also chipping in.
RipeLeads was founded in 2003 by Craig McConnel, Terrence McConnel and Tyson McConnel. The company previously raised $1.3million in seed funding intent on October 31 2013 in the name of Webspand. The company also participated in Y Combinator’s Summer 2016 class.
