Managing Sales :
  • Areas to Manage 
    • Lead Generation Activity, 
    • Meeting and Presentation Activity, 
    • Conversion Rate, 
    • Value of Sales 
    • Level of Repeat Business.
  • Challenges to Sales Force
    • If your problem is uncovering opportunities, we will know to look at the quality of leads generated or your ability to ask questions or your ability to drill down once you have asked the initial question.
    • If your problem is conversion, then we will need to look at how you manage the relationship and how you ensure that you have clearly understood the buying signals, timescales and also that you are in conversation with the decision maker.
    • If your problem is repeat business, then we would look at the your communication style, the level of contact you have with the client, how well the company delivers on what you promised originally. Remember that 2nd, 3rd and 4th sales are much more profitable than the 1st sale even if there is not as big a thrill.
    • If your problem is doing the activity, then we would question your reason for being in sales in the first place. Successful Sales people are people of action. They get up early, they don’t watch the clock, they are clear on what they want from life and how much they want to earn. They are motivated by achievement, success and the wanting to do better.
    • If your problem is your price, then we would look at your perception of value, your perception of your product, your perception of your self and your company. We would also look deeper into why you struggle with the price of your product. A sales person who give excessive discounts just to win sales will ultimately cost your business money.
