Pain points are issues or problems that are causing prospective customers of your business to worry and require a solution.
Uncovering customer pain points ultimately affects both your sales and marketing strategy.
Agents need to figure out the prospect’s pain points so they can tailor their message and present their service as the appropriate solution. And marketers want to understand these pain points so they can advertise/present their solution effectively and in an appealing and enticing way.
That’s why identifying and uncovering these pain points is so crucial.

In both sales and marketing, you need to uncover your prospects’ pain points in order to position your service as the solution.

The tricky thing is, not all prospects know what they want. And alignment between your marketing and sales team is crucial.
