The Diamond Approach to Prospecting & Lead Generation

Strategy, Reporting, Messaging, Execution

At ML, we believe there are four cornerstones of every great sales program. We call it the “Diamond Approach,” and we apply it to every service we provide, including target market audience development which is the backbone of prospecting and lead generation.

The Diamond Approach Focuses Experts from Across ML Practice Areas On Your Project

  • Reporting: Account Operations, responsible for the reporting and focused on the data.
  • Execution: Specialist Team, responsible for the execution and focused on the intel.
  • Messaging: Marketing Communications, responsible for the messaging and focused on the market reaction.
  • Strategy: Client Services, responsible for the strategy and focused on the goals.

Reporting: Account Operations, responsible for the reporting and focused on the data. Execution: Specialist Team, responsible for the execution and focused on the intel. Messaging: Marketing Communications, responsible for the messaging and focused on the market reaction. Strategy: Client Services, responsible for the strategy and focused on the goals.

In combination with the Diamond Approach, our industry-leading Strategic Outbound Sales Methodology ensures you engage with the right individuals at the right accounts. This lets you share your content and marketing message with the right people and in a way that is relevant and builds trust.

7 Steps to Your Total Addressable Market

  1. Identify your ideal client profile and buyer personas.
  2. Identify target accounts within your total addressable market based on the client profile.
  3. Using a trusted data source, build a list of suspect contacts based on key titles that align with your buyer personas.
  4. Identify your best content that speaks to pain points and is best used to educate new prospects.
  5. Craft messaging that will be relevant to your audience and will position you as a trusted source of information.
  6. Begin multi-channel, multi-touch outreach to verify contacts, engage and begin to build awareness.
  7. Monitor reaction to your outreach and pivot based on what you are learning from the data.

The result? A database of verified decision-makers at your target accounts. This becomes a leverageable asset you can use to maintain communication that keeps your brand top of mind.

Strategy

ML’s seasoned sales and marketing professionals work with your team to understand your company, your offering, and the market that you are targeting. We analyze your ideal client profile and build a list of accounts based on key criteria. We can also review your current database of leads and compare against a master list of your ideal customers to identify gaps.

Once we’ve built out the target market, the ML team will perform strategic outreach to verify we have the right individuals identified as prospects, updating the original list as we navigate through each organization.

“After retiring from a long career in international banking, ML affords me the perfect opportunity to apply that experience in a meaningful way. ML’s clients benefit from my experience having worked in senior positions with RBC and Eurobank as I know how to speak the language of the decision makers our clients are trying to reach.”

Reporting

We provide data analysis and reporting as a core element of every program. The ML team captures intel throughout the project. This data will help us better understand the true scope of your addressable market and will tell us what is working and what is not, which signals when a pivot in the approach may be required.

Every ML client receives real-time access to a personalized, private, and secure HubSpot dashboard accessible to your entire team. The dashboard contains all the data collected from every connection and provides visibility into who is engaging, what they are reacting to, and how the message and content is performing.
