The process of converting custom tile design businesses from prospects to satisfied customers isn't random. It takes intentionality from owners and managers to create a strategy that connects your products to your customer base.

Aggressive Recruiting

Profitable returns begin with aggressive recruiting tactics. Your company can't afford to send an inferior sales team into the field.

Companies that sell to custom tile design businesses should focus their attention on self-motivated candidates. At the same time, you need to make sure your sales hires are team players. Individuals who lack a team work ethic will ultimately hamper your sales efforts, no matter how good they look on paper.

Marketing, Promotions & PR

Young B2B companies are often tempted to buy their way into the market. Rather than taking the time to develop relationships with custom tile design 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.

Review Mechanisms

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 custom tile design businesses themselves.

If necessary, modify your hiring and/or strategy to accommodate changes in the marketplace.
