Are you constantly trying to get your struggling sales team back on track?
Experts suggest sales management and sales training techniques can improve your company’s sales. Before letting slowperforming staff members go, utilize some of the below sales training techniques to boost performance and get your sales team back on track.
- Put your sales team on a diet
- Coach the team
- Have a top notch sales manager
Wait – aren’t we trying to get MORE sales? Then you might be asking yourself why we recommend a sales diet right?
Get your sales team focused by reducing the number of calls they need to make. This sales diet can allow you and your sales team to take the time to dissect the calls and work through them. Find out what is working and what’s not. And if you haven’t already set individual benchmarks for each team member, do so. When members of the team meet or exceed the benchmarks in place, reward them.
Keeping your sales staff from burning out by lowering their calls and creating obtainable goals, can provide the added confidence needed to create the sale. Believe me – there aren’t too many sales made when sales people sound like they are desperate.
The first step to improving sales is talking directly to the team to find out what struggles they are facing. What makes their jobs difficult? What could they do better? What could they be provided with to do better?
Finding out what your sales team needs is essential. Find out the issues and focus on one now and improve it. Focus on behaviors not outcomes. In sales we are always tied to meeting our numbers, which of course is important. That being said, if we focus our energy too much on meeting a quota we loose site on how we get there.
Have a great sales manager in place. Good employees usually don’t leave bad companies, they leave bad managers. Having a top notch manager in place can lead your team to overcoming their challenges by motivating them, identifying weaknesses and improving them.
