Marketing, Promotions & PR

Emerging B2B businesses are often tempted to buy their way into the market. Rather than taking the time to develop relationships with broadcasting equipment business owners, these companies blanket the market with high-priced marketing content in hopes of scoring fast conversions from buyers.

Marketing is useful and necessary. But new businesses should channel their energy toward initiatives that support their value proposition. Although lead lists obtained from third-party vendors like Experian can dramatically increase the quality of your prospects, the effectiveness of your marketing efforts is limited to your team's ability to connect marketing, promotional and PR messaging with your company's unique product traits.

How to Evaluate Sales Staff

Periodic staff assessment is essential for companies that sell in this industry. Businesses that achieve significant market share hire quality candidates and routinely evaluate them against performance goals and benchmarks.

Although annual reviews may be enough for other business units, sales units should be evaluated quarterly with monthly or weekly reviews of sales totals. Training, coaching and sales incentives can be useful for improving performance and revenues. In some instances, it may be appropriate to team underperforming sales reps with reps that have more experience selling to broadcasting equipment businesses.

Industry Experience

In broadcasting equipment business sales, industry experience is fundamental requirement. Although it isn't necessary to have decades of front line experience, it helps to speak the industry language and to understand the pressure points of a typical broadcasting equipment business.

B2B sellers who lack industry experience can compensate for inexperience by subscribing to trade journals, partnering with industry insiders and immersing themselves in the industry culture. Remember, broadcasting equipment businesses may also be more friendly to sellers within their network, so it's important to make new contacts as quickly as possible.
