Research the Market
Start with good market research, which is a prerequisite for profitability in this industry. High volume sales teams conduct thorough research on market demand, pricing and niche opportunities.
More importantly, they conduct research on the specific saw rental businesses that they want to add to their customer roster.
Since relationships can be critical in closing sales, meetings with saw rental businesses leaders and their staff can establish a basis for the sales cycle. These meetings can also provide information that can be leveraged to exploit weaknesses in competitors' sales models.
Marketing -- or more specifically aggressive marketing -- is an essential ingredient in the recipe for saw rental business sales success. A combination of tight competition, multichannel approaches and emerging marketing technologies mean that you'll need to take a careful approach to capture the attention of decision makers.
A large portion of your marketing efforts should focus on channeling leads to your sales force. Lead lists are a genuinely powerful resource in lead generation and can be purchased cost-effectively from Experian and other reliable third-party providers.
In a perfect world, you want your sales force to be self-motivated to perform at a high level. But to inspire your team even further, consider offering sales incentives to sales reps that exceed saw rental business sales targets.
Incentives don't have to be pricey -- sometimes just recognizing an employee's worth to the organization is more valuable than an expensive incentive that lacks recognition or prestige.
