Do you need more customers and need to learn how to get more sales leads, if the answer is “Yes”, then Sales Drive can help you – here is a quick checklist to assist you further:

STRATEGY

* Begin by working on your marketing plan (if you fail to plan, you plan to fail).
* Add value to your products / services. Keep adding value.
* Set sales targets and figure out your conversion rate (i.e. “we close 1 sale for each 4 enquiries). This will give you a good idea of the number of sales leads you need.
* Increase your promotional mix (i.e. the different ways in which you ‘get the word out’ about your business).
* Spend more time on marketing (including working on your marketing plan, website etc).
* Add contacts to your CRM (Customer Relationship Management system), every day.
* Contact a friendly member of the Sales Drive team and learn more about sales, marketing and attracting more customers.

POSITIONING

* Don’t just talk about being helpful. Be helpful. Don’t just tell us how great you are – demonstrate it by sharing your knowledge in helpful and useful ways, i.e. via the internet and at events.
* Stop pushing so hard. Whatever you push against in life, it pushes back against you.

BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

* You will win more business from people with whom you have a prior business relationship. Whether they are existing customers, networking contacts or newsletter subscribers – relationships count.

WEBSITE

* Have a professional looking website, based on a Google friendly CMS (Content Management System) such as WordPress. Make it easy for visitors to engage with you, via your site.

SOCIAL MEDIA

* Login to your favourite social media platforms every day. Don’t just be a ‘broadcaster’ – be a conversationalist.

REFERRALS

* Always ask for referrals. (I know that this can be hard, due to fear of rejection – however – you must do this).
* If you want more referrals, give more referrals. (By the way – this works for anything. If you want more love – give more love).

RESPONSIVENESS

* Always respond quickly to sales leads in a friendly, professional manner. This is a message, in its own right. Even if they don’t buy from you this time, they’ll remember you.

FEEDBACK

* Have someone to report to, with regards to sales leads / sales. Talk everything through with them once a week. This works, even if it is your mother and she doesn’t say much, whilst you are talking; well, OK, you get my drift, don’t you?)
