B2B sales rep exceeding quota

Finding ways to meet or exceed sales quota is the most daunting part of your job. Here’s 10 techniques to help you prepare, execute and finish your quarter strong.

1. Map and analyze

Each opportunity in your pipeline is different, just as each salesperson has a way of doing business. Proper analysis and mapping can prepare you for each opportunity. Find the right balance between aggressiveness and innovation. Engage your subject matter experts to understand what is best for the customer in each opportunity.

2. Selling Methodologies

There are over 20 selling methodologies that can easily be found through a Google search. Your business may have adapted or customized a methodology based on your product/solution, or your target market segment. Embrace a methodology that suits you, and your opportunity base. Choose from one of these top methodologies.

3. Lead Generation

Lead generation is the job of your marketing team. However, if you do not have enough opportunities in your pipeline you are unlikely to meet your quota. Explore ways to re-engage your existing customer base and develop your own highly qualified opportunity pipeline. Consider using a b2b selling automation system to engage your existing customers.

4. Socal Media Strategies

Use social media. Most of your customers are online. Engage your opportunities on social media. This is another way to interact with customers without seeming too pushy or annoying.

5. Lead Qualification

Use lead scoring systems to qualify your leads coming from your marketing team. Why spend time on dead leads, while that time can be expended on active opportunities and engaging your current pipeline with information for decision making, and improving your pipeline conversion ratio.

6. Pre-sale Customer Service

You always put the needs of your customer first, obviously. Each customer in your current pipeline is often seeking information to make a decision. Be the first to provide that information to your customer. Anticipate their needs. Deliver expertise by engaging your team of subject matter experts. Share highly relevant information so your customer can take another step towards a positive decision.

7. Market Knowledge

Know your market, your customer's products and solutions, and their market, be up to date on the changes and learn about your customer. There is a lot of information on the web, use it, and be prepared to engage your customer, and their needs.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
