As a business owner or sales leader, I know what matters most to you. Revenue, income results, cash flow, am I missing anything? Oh yeah, profitability!!
And what do all those things have in common?? SALES!!
With only 57% of teams achieving their sales target at the best times, meeting sales goals is hard!
Doing it while trying to weather tough economic times is when your anxiety and sleepless nights really kick in!
It used to be one or two brick & mortar competitors, but with the explosion of technology and a click of a button, competition is everywhere.
Customers are hard-to-find, slower-to-close, & risk averse, preferring to maintain the status quo than to make any change at all. They are now more knowledgeable and have higher expectations, including improved service and better pricing.
Your sales team… the sales skill they have got them where they are today, but they need more to get you the results you need if you want to outsell and outperform for tomorrow.
It comes down to giving them a new combination of tools:
1. Increase Emotional Intelligence & Soft Skills; empathy, self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, and communication skills. These are essential abilities in developing both internal and external relationships. Selling is 80% relationship-building. Happy, cohesive work environments create higher productivity and profitability.
Harvard Business Review reports that today’s organizations prioritize soft skills above technical know-how, for everyone from the C-Suite to sales and frontline staff, and that the demand for emotional intelligence and soft skills will continue to grow.
2. ‘Personality to Profit’ is a powerful and proven technique to allow your team to easily identify a client’s personality type, purchasing triggers, and communication style. Knowing what motivates and appeals to prospects allows you and your team to clearly deliver your message in a way that most effectively influences and aligns with your client maximizing your sales, achieving faster sales results, and optimizing your business.
3. And finally…. use simple ‘repeatable processes’. Why? Simple processes are easy to learn, retain and most importantly… implement out in the field, which builds rep confidence, improves the customer experience and trust level, and leads to higher results and profitability. ‘Organizations who use formal processes earn 28% more than those who do not.’ (HBR)
