Does your Sales Strategy need kick-starting?
Sales Strategy can make or break your sales results. It's not just about the salespeople having a great pitch, the plan needs to suit the market, your products and most importably, your customers. Getting the strategy right is fundamental - getting is wrong is catastrophic.
If you're employing salespeople to attract, maintain and grow your customer base, you really need to set them off on the right path. Your sales strategy should consider both internal and external factors to your business. It needs to focus strongly on who your ideal customer is and how best to create a clear path from your products, services and business, directly to your customer.
