A peak inside this sales guide
Efficiency is not a term traditionally associated with sales and marketing. Creativity, persuasiveness and persistency maybe, but not efficiency, normally the preserve of operations or finance.
What is sales efficiency
It's about selling more of your product at a lower overall cost. For some, it's simply about introducing sales enablement technologies to streamline sales. For others, there's an actual need to build a stronger foundation for sales efficiency.
The ideal buyer profile
Who’s buying your product? What do you know about them? The idea is to achieve enough definition to be able to create a marketing list for your ideal buyer target market.
Documenting your sales process
Gain clarity about how best to take your technology solution to market. We help you answer your toughest marketing questions quickly and with confidence. Document automation software can really help here, and it’s also useful for tracking.
Systemise your follow-ups
