About this Workshop:
The secret to hitting your goals is the right planning. Setting up a formal sales plan makes sure you and your prospect -- and anyone else associated with the purchase decision -- are on the same page. It also makes the sales process more manageable for a prospect who’s never gone through a major purchase decision before by taking a gargantuan task and breaking it up into little, achievable pieces. How do you make accountability work to your advantage by creating commitment and buy-in? And how do you minimize distractions, balance competing obligations, and make sure you stay on track?
In this seminar, we will:
- Create the sales plan for 2020/21
- Look at new business acquisition strategies and tactics
- Investigate existing business growth strategies and tactics
- Learn how to get buy-in from stakeholders on the plan
