Don't be intimidated by the speed of the marketplace. Although speed is important, sales fundamentals and logical strategies will make the biggest difference in the success or failure of your selling efforts.

How to Evaluate Sales Staff

Frequent employee evaluations are a must 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 boosting sales and employee morale. In some instances, it may be appropriate to team underperforming sales reps with reps that have more experience selling to private delivery services businesses.

Gaining Traction in the Marketplace

Every B2B business hopes to achieve viral buzz for their products. But viral marketing strategies are a far cry from money in the bank.

To succeed with private delivery services businesses, you'll want to apply a diverse mix of marketing strategies that leverage multiple marketing channels.

Many sellers purchase lead lists from recognized list providers. If locating a lead list vendor is on your to-do list, we recommend Experian Business Services, an established vendor with a proven track record of delivering current and targeted lists of private delivery services business contacts.

Understanding the Market

Start with good market research, which is a prerequisite for profitability in this industry. Smart sales teams conduct thorough research on market demand, pricing and niche opportunities.

More importantly, they research and evaluate the specific private delivery services businesses that they want to add to their customer roster.

Since relationships are an important part of the selling process, meetings with private delivery services businesses leaders and their staff often form the backbone of the sales cycle. These meetings can also provide information that can improve your competitive position.
