Selling to Funeral Planning Businesses

The area of funeral planning businesses is fertile ground for ramping up sales. For business sellers prepared to compete, funeral planning businesses offer a steady sales revenue stream .

Penetrating the world of funeral planning businesses can require complex sales and marketing strategies.
(article continues below)

For small businesses that sell to these companies, the industry's positive growth outlook makes the solid execution of fundamental sales principles more important than ever.

How to Find Funeral Planning Business Leads

Leads are the foundation of successful selling. The first step in lead generation is to evaluate the local market. From there, you can broaden your net to include the yellow pages, Internet searches and trade listings.

The names of funeral planning businesses you obtain through your own efforts need to be qualified through phone calls, emails, and face-to-face conversations.

But the most dependable source of qualified sales leads is often a third-party lead list provider. If you're in the market for high quality lead lists, we recommend Experian Business Services to our business partners. Experian has a reputation for providing updated and sorted lead lists that can be used for direct mail and other marketing efforts directed toward funeral planning businesses.

Sales Strategy Tips

Effective funeral planning business sales strategies focus on selling fundamentals and ROI. Some sales techniques are simply more efficient than others and the ones that maximize ROI need to be pushed to the top of the list.

Also, it's important to avoid a silo approach to funeral planning business sales. Companies that isolate their sales units fall behind in the marketplace, especially when they face companies that encourage dialogue and collaboration between sales, marketing and other units.

Role of Owners & Managers

Owners and managers are active players in selling to funeral planning businesses. Front line visibility is essential for large accounts, but your sales team can benefit from on-the-job partnerships with the owner or sales manager.

By periodically accompanying your reps in the field, you can build relationships with the people you count on to close sales.
