Sales Management

Sales management is crucial to make a company succeed

We help you empower your sales teams to deliver growth. We identify where to improve process, guide your sales activities in the right direction regarding quantity and quality, and put your KPI and sales leadership model in place.

As sales manager you are responsible for the results achieved by your sales personnel. You need to take into consideration strategic and operational demands, and strike a balance between intuition and hard facts. Finally you have to ensure short term results and build up medium term ones. If you do not practice sales management that’s a really hard task. But with excellent management of sales you will be able to do just that.

Sales management is still needed 

Some might ask if sales management is still needed. The answer is yes. Without proper sales management you will not obtain the results you expected. It’s not enough to sit with each sales person at the beginning of the year to negotiate and set the objectives. Fixing the objectives is not a guarantee that they will be achieved. Results are only a consequence, an output – not a given. They come from the sales platform and the sales platform itself is the result of the numbers, orientation and the quality of actions taken towards customers and prospects.

Sales team motivation

Through Mercuri’s sales management programme you learn to motivate and educate your team to enable them tailor their actions to achieve the expected results.  Now more than ever the key to success is an engaged, motivated workforce -and great training holds the key…it’s about more than skills – it’s fundamental to your long term strategy and revenue growth.
