A good sales team will make all of the difference for the growth of your business. Finding leads is crucial, but one must know how to convert those leads into sales if they wish to grow their company. It takes hard work, dedication, and a sales mentality to become a good sales person. If you are starting a company, then you have to assemble a sales team that will close deals on a regular basis. To make sure that you have an efficient sales team, there are several ways to make sure that you get the best individuals possible.
1. Conduct Thorough Interviews
A good interview will help you determine if the sales representative is right for your team. First of all, give your interviewee some scheduled times to choose from and make sure that they can meet on your schedule. During the interview, it is crucial to gain as much information about their work history as possible. Make sure that their values and goals are in line with your company. Ask them about their long-term goals and how they can contribute value to your company.
2. Track Analytics
Analytics are an essential part of keeping track of your team’s progress. A great way to easily track analytics is to create a spreadsheet with vitale information such as sales, time on the phone, leads, and more. At the same time, you should have weekly or monthly goals that need to be met. Each week, look at your analytics and make sure that your team is staying on track. Keep it organized and make sure that each sales person is entering their data on a regular basis.
3. Incentivize Your Team
If you want your team to work to the best of their ability, then it is a great idea to incentivize them on a regular basis. A great way to do this is to offer bonuses based on performances. Another great way is to increase commission based on the sales made. Bonuses and incentivisation is a fair way to make sure that your sales team goes the extra mile.
4. Create Good Communication
Communication is vital for sales and the growth of the company. You want your team to have an open dialogue with one another and always communicate their progress. There are several technologies out there to help you accomplish good communication such as Slack, Skype, and Asana. Even if your staff is working remotely, these technologies can help you communicate effectively on a daily basis.
5. Set Clear Goals
As a business owner, you should clearly communicate your goals to your employees and make sure that they are ready to accomplish them. Make weekly, monthly, and quarterly goals and use your analytics to make sure that they are met. If your salespeople do not meet these goals, then you will know that they are not a good fit. Motivate your team on a regular basis and delegate responsibility effectively.
