How to Increase Business Sales
Selling to Mosques Businesses
There's no question that mosques are major players in a growth industry -- and that presents an opportunity to entrepreneurs who have aggressive revenue targets. For business sellers prepared to compete, mosques offer a reliable source of income .
Selling is one of the hardest tasks you'll ever undertake. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that landing new customers in this industry is a daunting – but ultimately achievable business goal.
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 mosque owners, these companies unleash an avalanche of high-priced marketing content in hopes of scoring fast conversions from buyers.
Marketing is useful and necessary. But new businesses should focus their marketing budgets on initiatives that support their value proposition. Although lead lists obtained from third-party vendors like Experian can equip your sales force with targeted 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.
Benefits of Networking
Networking expands your reach within the industry. In addition to raising your company's profile, it increases your credibility with mosques.
But more importantly, a strategy that emphasizes networking can be a lead generation machine. Sometimes the leads you generate through solid networking will be leads that you had never considered before.
The mosque industry is relationship-based. Businesses that sell in the industry leverage networking and contacts throughout the sales cycle.
Lead lists are helpful in expanding your network, but only if your sales force is willing to develop list contacts into long-term business relationships. As an owner or manager, you need to encourage networking strategies and proactively model relational sales techniques.
