Reasons Your Salespeople Aren’t Selling

Reasons Your Salespeople Aren’t Selling

  • Is your website capturing leads and information or is it just a passive brochure?
  • Are you at a minimum using simple social media tactics such as friending customers on Facebook from day one?
  • Do you have an outlined strategy of what salespeople should cover on a follow up call and do you practice with them weekly? (it’s an easy and short phone conversation with them…)
  • Are your salespeople finding out all they can about the customers before placing follow up calls (there’s lots of info online…) Information is power and creates confidence
  • Is your sales center visually informative and hands-on?
