If your sales strategies fall flat, your entire revenue stream could be in jeopardy. Here are a few simple strategies you can count on to deliver results.

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 lawn and garden referral information services business owners, these companies flood the industry with high-priced marketing content in hopes of making rapid headway with 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.

Niche Selling

New businesses that sell to the entire marketplace face a difficult task. A better approach is to customize your approach to an underserved niche.

In the lawn and garden referral information services business industry, niches can be based on geographic, demographic or industry-specific factors. For niche sellers, advance research is essential. Don't assume that there will be demand for a niche product line unless your assumptions are rooted in solid facts.

Sales Incentives

Whenever possible, you want your sales force to be self-motivated to perform at a high level. But to encourage constant improvement, consider offering sales incentives to sales reps that exceed lawn and garden referral information services business sales targets.

Incentives don't have to be cost-prohibitive -- sometimes a simple, affordable incentive that recognizes a team member's performance is more valuable than an expensive incentive that lacks recognition or prestige.
