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

Direct Marketing Strategies

Direct marketing has many advantages for selling to promotional items 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 platform for relationships with promotional items 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. Over the years we've found that Experian is one of the best in the business with a reputation for supplying consistently reliable lists of promotional items businesses that produce high conversion rates.

Collaborative Strategies

Collaboration is a hallmark of companies that succeed in selling to promotional items businesses. Vertical business models simply aren't as efficient as models that emphasize collaboration between business units.

In some cases, the synergy between sales, marketing and other business units can provide the impetus for meaningful growth.

Sales Strategy Tips

Effective promotional items business sales strategies focus on selling fundamentals and ROI. Some sales techniques are more effective 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 promotional items business sales. Companies that strictly segment their sales units fall behind in the marketplace, especially when they face companies that encourage cooperation between sales, marketing and other units.
