Sales

SalesYou have spent a lot of money developing your product or service.   Unfortunately, products rarely sell themselves. Sometimes a good marketing campaign will do a lot, unfortunately, it is only part of the puzzle.  In most cases, someone needs to be the interface between your product and your customer.     Who is that interface and what are they saying.  Do they have the skills to help your customers make the connection between what they want and what you are selling?

What is the difference between say an adequate waiter and an excellent one?  The experience.  Has he taken time to say hello to the customers and tell them about the menu and options?  Has he brought things to their attention that might get them excited about their meal? Has he offered them drinks that spark their attention?  Did he offer a dessert they just couldn’t refuse?  Or, did he do what most servers do?  Hand out menus, ask if they want a drink, take the order,  ask if they want dessert and hand them a bill.

That is just one example.  Selling is about understanding your customer and helping them find what they want.  In a store, people typically say they are just looking.  A good sales person will help them find things they want, even if they don’t really know what they are looking for.  A good sales person helps you make the purchase and feel excited about it.  If the people in your store are not engaging your customers, you may be losing business.

If you have salespeople who are out selling your product, they require attention and training.  If sales isn’t one of your strengths, you may not be providing the support they need to sell your product effectively.  You may also be laying the groundwork for them to take your customers and go somewhere else.  Learning to manage and support your sales team, even if you aren’t a sales person is important.  Let us help you make you a better manager, and your sales force more effective.

  •  I believe that she could help any business or organization because she understands the structure of organizations. She knows the elements that must be in place for success. Beyond that, she knows how to inspire people to be very creative and to learn to solve their own problems.
