The #1 cause of business failure is low sales.
#1 cause of business success is high sales. Your sales process and the skills of your sales force will determine the health of your business. One of the best investments you can make is investing in sales process development or sales training for yourself and your employees.
Are you a business owner or entrepreneur? Then you are probably the best sales person in your business.
If you had a process that you could teach to a sales professional and they would be able to get the same or better results as you, would that be valuable?
What would stop you from hiring a sales professional if you knew they would pay for themselves and generate an ROI for your business?
The answers to these questions has two parts:
- Sales Process Development is key to scaling your business for long-term success. By developing a step-by-step process for your sales efforts, you can duplicate your efforts faster. Your sales process becomes the standard on which to measure results. When necessary, it can be optimized or revised to reflect current market conditions. The benefit of having every sales person using the same process will create consistent growth and most importantly, a consistent customer experience.
- Sales Skills Development is essential to growing your business. You are only as good as your weakest skill and a comprehensive sales training plan focuses on transforming weaknesses into strengths. You could have a sales professional who delivers the best presentations, but if they are reluctant to ask for the business and close the sale it does not count.
There are eight critical areas for sales success:
- Trust / Rapport
- Objection Handling
- Referrals / Resales
Each critical success area needs to be customized to your business. Each sales person must know what to do, how much time to spend and how to measure each aspect of the process. Once established, your sales efforts will be focused, coherent and transparent; your sales engine will be ready for you to step on the accelerator.
