Message First, Targets Second
Messaging is an important part of a successful sales strategy. Muddy messaging dilutes the sales cycle and frustrates prospective customers' efforts to discern the value of your products.
Whenever possible, the identification of key messaging should be incorporated into a comprehensive planning process that combines sales and marketing into a single, unified strategy.
The next step is to reduce your contact list to the contacts who are most likely to respond to your messaging. Although lead generation techniques are diverse, lead lists can be a useful resource for generating a list of prospects that are receptive to your messaging. Vendors like Experian specialize in providing targeted lists of bamboo dealerships that can be customized to your precise specifications.
Benefits of Networking
Networking broadens your prospect pool. In addition to raising your company's profile, it increases your credibility with bamboo dealerships.
But more importantly, a strategy that emphasizes networking can be a lead generation machine. Sometimes the leads you generate through consistent and intentional networking will be leads that you had never considered before.
Ideally, you want your sales force to be self-motivated to perform at a high level. But to inspire your team even further, consider offering sales incentives to sales reps that exceed bamboo dealership sales targets.
Incentives don't have to break your budget -- sometimes just recognizing an employee's worth to the organization is more valuable than an expensive incentive that lacks recognition or prestige.
Given your interest in selling and in bamboo dealerships, you might find these additional resources to be of interest.
