All November, we've been writing and talking about targeting both on the blog and in the podcast. So in this “CFS Talks Sales” roundtable, we share some best practices for sales targeting.
In this episode of Let's Talk Sales, you'll hear from Rebecca Twomey, Natalija Novakovic, and me, Elizabeth Frederick.
I recently published an eBook called The Ultimate Guide to Sales Targeting: How to Attract and Pursue the RIGHT Leads for Your Business. In case you missed it, you can read it here.
In the podcast, we talked about how sales targeting drives activity. We shared stories about sales targeting and discussed some of the challenges leaders face as they target prospects. We also shared best practices and actionable advice for both experienced and new salespeople.
Advice for Sales Targeting
- Natalija recommended keeping an open mind and keeping an eye out for patterns. Listen to feedback from prospects and reassess your targets as things change.
- Rebecca reminded us to document everything! By following a process consistently, you'll be able to figure out the areas for improvement.
- And I recommended that you automate lead qualification and disqualification wherever possible.
