How to Follow-Up On Sales Leads

Industry standards show that almost 50% of sales leads are not pursued.  From a business-minded standpoint, that’s pretty low.  Imagine all the lost revenue!

Although customers can be indecisive in their purchasing decisions, not having the determination to follow up on a possible lead is the quickest way to ensure that you and your business never receive that prospective sale. Even when the leads are followed up on and the customer still decides to back out, sales associates make sure to correct any mistakes possibly made that cost your company the sale. The first step, therefore, to making a sale is the follow up.  Applying some new sales philosophies toward your marketing strategy can also help improve your company.

Let’s stay focused, however, and go over that first step a bit. (Guest Post) Continue reading How to Follow-Up On Sales Leads

Tips to Enhance Sales Effectiveness

All the coolest things in the world could be invented tomorrow, but no one would know about them without salespeople. If you want to share the next big thing with more potential customers, try these tips to step up your game. (Guest Post)

Know your client

Understanding your customer means more sales in the long run, so take the time to know what’s important to them. If you have a working knowledge of their business, what they wish for in a product or service and what holds them back, you’ll be able to tailor your pitch and product to meet their exact needs. It’s also important to know something about them on a personal level; some people will automatically say ‘no’ if they feel rushed or pressured on a sales decision, while others want to accomplish as much and as soon as possible. Asking questions like “When would you like me to follow up with you on this?” puts the power into the client’s hands and makes them feel more comfortable.
Be available whenever your customer needs you, whether you text, Skype or e-mail them. Continue reading Tips to Enhance Sales Effectiveness
