With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to spring clean your sales process by taking the opportunity to evaluate what is, and isn’t, working. Read on for our list of tips that can help to revitalize this valuable component of your business and breath new life into your sales.
Evaluate Your Sales Data
Your sales analytics can reveal the strengths and weaknesses in your sales process, and can be a useful tool which can help to determine the following:
- The source and direction of your sales leads.
- Which of these sources are increasing or decreasing in value.
- Discover where you are realizing the best conversion rates at each stage of the sales process.
- Find out which customers are yielding the highest sales results and present the highest growth opportunities.
After your analysis is complete, review your data to see if you can simplify your sales process by asking yourself these key questions:
- Are your marketing materials and literature relevant and up to date?
- Are there one or more components of your sales process that are no longer effective or that need to be revised?
- After reviewing your sales scripts and presentation materials is there a way to streamline the information to make it more efficient and attractive?
Organize Your Client List
Review your client database to ensure all contact information is up to date. For those who you have lost touch with this is a chance to reconnect, and the gesture may stimulate a new sale.
Set New Goals
With so much of the year still ahead, now is the time to establish your sales goals and formulate a solid plan to achieve them. Consider the following:
- Is your product line expanding?
- Are there new markets that you can tap into?
- Do you have a list of any upcoming conferences or trade shows you are planning to attend?
- Are there any new, major clients you would like to approach and potentially acquire?
Seek Expert Advice
Like any spring cleaning project, extra hands can help to make the job easier and flow more smoothly. Consider hiring additional help at this time for areas such as consulting, sales training, lead generation and more.
