Why focus on Sales Planning and Prospecting?

Most salespeople say they are pretty good communicating with people and usually focus their skills development efforts on the client interaction part of the sales process i.e. rapport building, questioning skills, persuasion and influence, etc., and while the client interaction piece is vital to sales, it is not the only part. Sales planning and Prospecting are essential elements to a successful sales career.

Sales Planning: Knowing what you are selling to whom, and answering the question ‘Why you’ is key to getting your sales career started. As Henry Kissinger said ‘If you don’t know where you’re going, every road will lead to nowhere’. This program is designed to will help build a viable sales place to focus your sales efforts in the right markets with the right clients so you have the best chance of selling better, faster.

Sales Planning also includes managing your daily, weekly and monthly activities. There are several key activities that you need to be able to do and coordinate every week to implement your sales plan and achieve your sales goal and targets. This program will show you how to organise yourself and get in the right shape and rhythm to sell better, faster.

Sales Prospecting is about getting ignition. Once you know who you want to talk to you need to engage with them. This is prospecting. Whether you’re selling face2face or over the phone, you need to ignite sales opportunities. Nothing happens until you get in front of someone. However, prospecting is rated as one of the most scary elements of sales. But it doesn’t have to be. This program will show you how to make contact via phone, in person and via email confidently to help you sell better, faster.
