Effective sales call planning is the foundation of all successful sales calls. Millions of dollars in potential sales are lost everyday because sales calls are not planned as effectively as possible. Study after study shows us that the most successful sales reps are those who know their customer’s professional needs and interests, as well as their customer’s personal preferences. These successful sales reps are able to customize their sales presentations to meet the customer’s interests and needs. These same sales reps are even able to go a step further and use the information on business and personal needs to develop stronger relationships with their customers.
Successful sales reps have all of this information on their customers, and are able to use this information to its best during their presentations. These same reps obtain their information from various sources such as company records, observation and probing skills. All of these elements tied together make for successful sales call planning and subsequently successful sales calls. The only problem is that these successful sales reps are only 20 percent of the average sales force, but bring in eighty percent of the business. So what about the other eighty percent of sales reps, how can they be more effective?
The solution is to make the other eighty percent of your sales force also high performers. The name of this solution is the 360 Degree Selling Consultant©.

How To Get Started
The 360 Degree Selling Consultant© is comprised of two parts, Part 1 which is a “Self-Analysis” that needs to be completed by the sales rep one time only. Part 2 is the “Assessing Your Customers,” portion, where the rep needs to enter in all of the customer information. As soon as we receive both parts of the assessment forms, we start processing the information and send the sales rep a complete sales strategy report on each customer via e-mail.
This quick, simple, easy process can allow a sales rep to profile ten customers in just one hour’s time.
