Every company measures revenue, but the best also measure the activities that will lead to revenue.
Without a clear distinction between and event driven sales process and an advancement driven sales process, it is difficult to project revenues and growth from year to year, let alone manage a sales force. If a key sales person leaves, the company may lose its accounts and sales skill with that departure.
Developing a sales strategy involves a customized blend of sales techniques, contact management and sales training, as well as a clear definition of success within the sales cycle. These elements, along with an overall marketing plan, will enable a company to realistically project revenues and growth from year to year.
Sales strategies need to be more than just hope – they require strong implementation and discipline.
