Most sales leaders (and owners) HOPE their sales issues will disappear or turn around. Unfortunately, the only way a sales leader can improve their sales problem is this: Take action by doing something different.
9 Questions All Sales Leaders Need To Ask Themselves:
#1: How many of my salespeople are not meeting their quota? Now, ask yourself this: What are my plans to help them generate more sales?
#2: What percentage of our clients, prospects, referral partners, etc. have an e-mail address associated with their record? If it's not 100%, ask yourself why.
#3: What are our e-mail marketing and social media strategies?
#4: What is our sales follow-up strategy to ensure our sales team follows up on an e-mail marketing campaign, past proposals, etc.?
#5: How many formal/scheduled phone-blitz sessions do we have each week? Now, re-read question #1.
#6: What type of marketing collateral do we use on a sales call to help reduce price as a focal point or sales objection?
#7: How many times a month am I training the sales staff to improve their sales performance?
#8: How often do we connect with our database of customers/clients to:
- Cross-sell them with other products or services?
- Ask for a referral?
- Survey them to determine their future needs?
- Connect with them on their anniversary date/birthday?
#9: What am I using to track my sales team's proposals, proposal close ratio, and call-in leads?
Are You Happy With Your Answers?
If not, you should seek a professional like me who can help you create or fine-tune your sales and marketing strategies. By the way, don’t put marketing on your sales team’s shoulders, as research has proven salespeople are notoriously bad writers, and worse, do marketing that tarnishes a brand.
