Being a Sales Manager Is a Team Activity

Being a Sales Manager Is a Team Activity

If you work in sales you need to be a team player in order to get results through the individuals you're managing.

Be results-oriented

It's not enough for you just to focus on results, you have to build a team that's results-oriented too.

To do that, be clear with your team about what their goals and end results should be,Β  explain what you're trying to achieve and why it's important.Β 

Make yourself available for any questions or clarifications to ensure everybody is on the same page.

Provide your team with excellent sales training

This can be done in a three-part process:

  • Identify the key skills the salesperson will need to help them make their quota. These skills should be things that are highly relevant to your product or service.
  • Teach your new recruits these key skills (attend calls with them and watch them perform, give them audio programs to listen to, send them to sell seminars, or conduct your own.)
  • Continue checking in with your salespeople over time to reinforce what you've taught.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
