Sales Accountability without Skipping Sales Process Steps
The sales process is different across industries, but they all follow more or less the same formation in order to convert sales leads. It all comes down to effective sales accountability.
The most important aspect of the sales process is that everyone knows and understands it and that it is easily accessible. In the case that someone is unsure or would simply like to refresh their memory it should be made clearly visible to avoid any kind of confusion. It should be constantly communicated among the team so it becomes a part of daily language.
Educate and Train
Your team should be extensively trained in how to use and adapt the sales process, without skipping steps, in order to reach conversion. This means everyone in the sales team is not only comfortable with the sales process, but they also know exactly how to use it to make the sale.
Nurturing is the Most Important Aspect of Sales Accountability
If you cannot be trusted by the rest of the team to nurture your leads it is inevitable that you will lose customers for yourself or even for your entire business. Nurturing your leads is the most important thing for any sales person to remember. Leads will not convert if they go ignored.
With a lead management system you are guaranteed sales accountability because there is a system to log all information on all leads. Sales lead alerts help team members and sales team leaders stay accountable for themselves and each other with constant automated reminders of leads that need to be nurtured. This is the ultimate reminder for sales accountability and to keep track of your leads and their current status.
