Territory Management

This is a process that yields the most sales out of a territory. It starts with identification of the sold and unsold potential – existing customers, new customers, competitors’ customers with existing or new products/services. The process then prioritizes using developed criteria for the best customers and best opportunities that are right for your company that have the best chances of closing.  Then, effective prospecting campaigns are described and built to aggressively pursue best case situations and future candidates. This minimizes the dependency on RFP’s which are much lower probability and lower profit opportunities. The process gives managers a communication tool to discuss actions for pursuing prospects and moving sales forward.  This makes sales people accountable while managers will quickly learn the truth about the sales. Mangers will also be able to quickly recognize the behaviors that are hindering/helping the subordinates’ succeed. From this review accurate forecasts can be built and programs to improve the sales person’s skills can be created.
