How to Evaluate Sales Staff

Periodic staff assessment is essential for companies that sell in this industry. Businesses that achieve significant market share recruit the cream of the crop and routinely evaluate them against performance goals and benchmarks.

Although annual reviews may be enough for other business units, sales units should be evaluated quarterly with monthly or weekly reviews of sales totals. Training, coaching and sales incentives can be useful for improving performance and revenues. In some instances, it may be appropriate to team underperforming sales reps with reps that have more experience selling to painting consultants businesses.

The benefit of direct marketing is that it is an efficient method reaching qualified prospects with targeted messaging. From a sales perspective, direct marketing establishes a foundation for relationships with painting consultants businesses that can benefit from your products or services.

The tricky part about direct marketing is lead generation. Since reliable leads can be hard to find, we recommend using lead lists supplied by established third-party vendors.

Sales Strategy Tips

Effective painting consultants business sales strategies combine sales and marketing techniques with an eye toward ROI. Some sales techniques are simply more efficient than others and the ones that maximize ROI need to be prioritized.

Also, it's important to avoid a silo approach to painting consultants business sales. Companies that strictly segment their sales units lag in the marketplace, especially when they compete against companies that encourage collaborative processes between sales, marketing and other units.
