Larger companies typically understand how to leverage their marketing efforts to grow business. Part of that understanding is manifest in an institutionalized lead qualification and sales process. Salespeople undertake rigorous training on the features and advantages of products and services, how to use recommended marketing materials, and even how to overcome customer objections. But, having a workable sales process helps businesses of all sizes.
You likely have a sales process already, even if you haven’t memorialized it in print. Have you tried writing it down? Not only will it help you save time with each prospect, it will help you identify where you could lighten up or fortify activities. We know it’s all about making connections and building relationships, not about getting caught up in data entry and recordkeeping, but outlining your process is likely to help streamline your efforts for optimal effectiveness.
