In bereavement services business sales, industry experience is a huge plus. Although it isn't necessary to be a twenty year industry veteran, it helps to speak the industry language and to understand the pressure points of a typical bereavement services business.
B2B sellers who lack industry experience can supplement the shortfall by subscribing to trade journals, partnering with industry insiders and immersing themselves in the industry culture. Remember, bereavement services businesses may also be more open to sellers within their network, so it's important to make new contacts as quickly as possible.
It's also important to implement regular review mechanisms to evaluate the effectiveness of both your sales team and your strategy. Internal review processes should be based on quantifiable data as well as direct input from bereavement services businesses themselves.
If necessary, don't hesitate to adjust your strategy or personnel mix to accommodate changes in the marketplace.
Since sales and marketing are connected business activities, your company's marketing mix plays a central role in bottom line sales revenue. The industry's leading sellers employ multichannel marketing strategies and prioritize channels that target decision makers.
Despite the fact that there are multiple way to market to bereavement services businesses, B2B sellers can almost always benefit from outsourcing lead generation to a third-party provider. Experian and other vendors maintain accurate and up-to-date lists of bereavement services businesses. For many businesses, these lists establish a framework for the rest of the sales cycle.
