Determine the target market by looking on the demographic in your sales region and identifying the prospective customers. Use information and data created by your marketing and sales teams to establish who you are targeting and after that use the customer evaluation of the region to target the specific audience. While this is pretty simple and straightforward logic to define your target market, many companies skip this part. Getting this first step right will have a positive impact on your sales strategy.
Establish exactly what makes your products and services better than your competitors’ offerings. To market and sell to target customers, the sales reps need to understand why customers will need to buy the products and services from your company. Create effective sales message which highlights the advantages of the services and products you sell compared to competition. Build strong compelling benefits of using your services and products.
Start the analysis of your sales region to locate potential new customers. Test tactics and measure the ROI on marketing. Try all available channels and media like direct mail, PPC, email, Social media, newspapers, radio, etc. Make sure for each campaign you run you are capturing the data you will need to calculate your return on investment on marketing and sales.
Ask the sales reps to start making calls in line with supporting any other channel or media campaign you are using. This can in many situations leverage your marketing and sales campaigns.
Measure and monitor all the sales and marketing results, metrics, KPIs and ratios of your marketing activities and create daily, weekly and monthly sales reports. Your reports should be easy to use and update and should reflect your key sales metrics.
