We are now in the final stages of the development process of our service sales and sales development version 2.0. We have been testing our module with a selected few beta testers, and after initially having to make some minor changes, we are now in agreement that sales and sales development 2.0 are as close to best practice as it can be. By early February 2020, the service is ready to launch.
The service sales and sales development version 2.0 will be available from February 2020.
Changes versus version 1.0
- We have implemented a few new technological tools for an even more immaculate identification of necessary activities to ensure sales.
- We have updated educational material so to ensure that anyone in your organization working with or in close proximity to marketing and sales, knows why changes have been made and which effect it should yield.
Description sales and sales development version 1.0
The sales and sales development service identifies, systematize, and generates every sales-related activities, including marketing activities, into an activity plan. The management, sales, and marketing personnel can use as a guiding document or as a tick of scheme to ensure quotas and ambitions are met. The plan has an organizational module for the whole organization adjusted for organizational targets.
The module has a group module for different departments and their targets. The plan has a team module for each team and their targets. And the plan has an individual module with individual targets. The plan is aligned with all of the company’s resources and activities and will show the management instantly, whether goals and ambitions presented are realistic and attainable based upon organizational capacity and investment in sales and marketing.
Every organization can be compared to an American or European football team. There must be a tactic, a plan, in place with targets, activities, and goals at hand. But a team also needs to be compatible, it needs different traits and attributes to match up against different opponents. And a team must train, it needs to work on technique, booking, presentations, dynamics, and closing. A team needs to understand the nature of the industry it competes in, what to expect, competitors, possibilities, and such. And a team needs to be physically and mentally fit.
Our service sales and sales development do that, and the plan includes training modules for techniques, industrial awareness, mental and physical training adapted on an individual level for each member included in the team.
There is no international standard such as ISO, Veritas, or any other, that we can apply for or comply with regarding our matrices, algorithms, or models. So to ensure trustworthiness and credibility to our processes and solutions, we have decided that everything we do or develop has to originate in A level research. The same goes for our data gathering.
Any data used or utilized in developing our services, matrices, algorithms or models must be gathered in accordance with established scientific methods.
Consumer economics and behavior in the B2C and B2B markets are constantly evolving, so any assessment has a limited lifespan. We recommend all our clients to redo the service sales and sales development every 18 to 24 months unless there is a major change in the industry who triggers the need for an immediate response.
Sales and sales development has a one-off cost of € 4000,- and upwards depending on the size of the organization.
Any company associated with LFCG will have access to any updates in our models, metrics, algorithms, and research. We will upgrade all our services twice each year, thus providing our associates with detailed information on what has been done, anticipated effect, recommendations on any new technology to implement, and educational videos and instruction if needed on what and how.
The service sales and sales development version 2.0 will be available from February 2020. If you would like an “early bird” presentation of version 2.0, feel free to book a presentation here.
