Complex Buying team/ buying process

Running with You the Sales Rep

We all come across the above, plus the buying cycle is usually 3 to 12 months, yep sometimes longer.

So can you collapse the TIME LINE.

Must ask key questions when face to face with the many buyers etc that are at your first meeting

- who is involved in the decision making process once you have demonstrated your solution

-find out who are the most influential D/M

-what is each D/M key focus areas, you pick this up while you are chatting face to face

-who in the buying cycle "moves your deal/ solution to the next step/ person in the decision making process" and how quickly.

cool to name a few things you need to focus on.

Your Sales Mind, MASTER it in 2018

Running with you the Sales Rep

Yep. time to take hold of your sales mentality, how you think about your sales profession, are you proud to say you are a sales man,( I am 36 years in the game, ) many give their title which does not have the words sales man/ lady on their business cards.

Multiply your sales thinking, multiply your sales value, really look how you will be different in 2018.

Be Genuine, be memorable( look at ways you can do this), send out positive energy, be firm but fair, lay the right ground work, keep it simple but focused, but focused, focused.

You can have a wonderful sales year, believe, believe, forget the past.

2018 Sales Days

Running with you the Sales Rep

From my 35 years in the game, I know very few reps look at the above.

Sales is about numbers and %, so it is a great place to start by looking at how many sales days you have to Smash your Yearly Sales target.
 Cool good point Guy,

212 days not 365? not 300? not 252?

212 days divide by 21 day month equals 10 months to crack your 12 month sales target., pretty simple

Then look at how many hours per day do you actually sell, yes face to face( B2B reps )

Say 3 hours per day times 212 days equals 636 hours in the year, go do more numbers of your own, interesting.

Running with you the Sales Rep.

Time to see how accurate your sales pipeline is, most are 50 to 75% accurate, there is always padding done by the rep, poor why bullshit yourself, your boss, it harms the business. Oh it is your ego. ???

That is why 60% of reps do not hit target consistently, your boss has been there, I hope he gives you a real hard kick up the ass, you need it. I have been selling for 9 years, 11 years, 18 years, I know the game, so wrong. Oh you are maverick.

Focus on your Jan and Feb 2018 pipelines are they at least 50% over your target, why Guy, due to the above, plus sometimes you have little control of uncontrollable at clients.

Plus you need to have a good quality LIST of Prospect's to connect with in Jan and Feb.

You will lose some exciting clients in the new year, or their purchases might be lower than 2017.

Come guys the above is common sense, go make it happen, do not blame the economy, business is being done, do not blame the pricing strategy, do not blame the internal staff, system .


Till next time go sell your way to Success.
