GPT helps qualify leads by generating a list of prospects by training the language model on ideal customer profiles, historical lead data, or industry-specific data. Sales teams can prioritize promising leads by analyzing and scoring leads with the model. 
    2. Outreach and engagement: GPT can create targeted outreach messages. With the right inputs, the model can write personalized emails and messages resonating with the prospects. It can offer talking points on your draft emails, boosting response rates. 
    3. Conversion and discovery: GPT can assist salespeople in real-time during discovery or sales calls. The model can listen and suggest questions, objections, or product information to help the salesperson. GPT can be a “virtual sales assistant” by improving the salesperson’s knowledge and interaction. 
    4. Proposal generation: GPT can create customized proposals with relevant inputs like customer requirements, pricing options, and value propositions, saving salespeople time and delivering professional proposals to prospects. 
    5. Sales enablement and training: GPT provides sales enablement training materials. The language model generates sales playbooks, objection-handling guides, competitive intelligence, and product training modules to help the sales teams learn the required skills.

    GPT enables sales teams to customize email templates, subject lines, and body content and recommend language and messaging that engages and converts prospects.

    2. Qualify leads and schedule demos

    Lead qualification is like panning for gold: tedious, time-consuming, and inefficient. Until now! 

    GPTs ML algorithms analyze massive amounts of data and predict how to process them based on past successes.
