“80% of strategy comes down to execution. Alexander Group is exceptional at turning strategy into a relevant revenue generation model.”

Tom Isett, Senior Advisor, Popper and Co.

Identify sources of sales growth and deliver the right value with the right sales motions.

Sales Strategy planning for revenue growth determines whom you sell to, what you say to them and how you deliver the value promised. Start with consideration of where your biggest opportunities for growth are and the unique advantages inherent in your products/services. What messaging will best showcase your offerings? Now define what pre- and post-sale activities you will need to realize your advantages and deliver your unique messages convincingly. These considerations lead to informed decisions on what you need in terms of sales resources and investment to achieve your growth ambitions.

Structure your sales organization to align processes, people and resources with your growth strategy.

Based on the strategic assessment, you will know which sales processes should be applied to find, close and retain business in your target markets. You will want to use the least cost resources and simplest processes to deliver the value that customers demand. This principle will determine whether to sell direct, specialize, engage partners or add an inside sales team. It will also inform how these resources should be deployed. Sales organizational structure is a direct reflection of your goals, market opportunities and the types of sales motions needed to execute.

With strategy and structure in place, measure, track and manage for constant improvement.

Managing a complex sales organization requires constant communication, feedback and tuning. You need to ensure you have the right talent in the right places, that this talent is enabled with the right tools, executing the right processes. And that each position is responsible for the right metrics and goals. You must also communicate, train and coach your sellers on what is expected while recognizing and rewarding top performance. Effective sales organizational management will enable your sellers and partners to bring your strategy to life.
