Message First, Targets Second
Messaging is an important part of a successful sales strategy. Unfocused messaging dilutes the sales cycle and makes it difficult for prospective customers 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 there is more than one way to capture lead contacts, lead lists can be a useful resource for generating a list of prospects that are receptive to your messaging. Vendors like Experian are adept at providing targeted lists of shot peening businesses that can be tailored to meet geographic and demographic criteria.
In shot peening business sales, industry experience is a huge plus. Although it isn't necessary to have decades of front line experience, it helps to speak the industry language and to be acquainted with the concerns of a typical shot peening 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, shot peening businesses may also be more friendly to sellers within their network, so it's important to make new contacts as quickly as possible.
It's also important to design processes for the review of your sales force and selling strategy. Internal review processes should be based on quantifiable data as well as direct input from shot peening businesses themselves.
If necessary, modify your hiring and/or strategy to accommodate changes in the marketplace.
