Coming from a start-up, though, our sales process is anecdotal in nature and each sales associate is allowed to cover a district within the region using their own approaches. This has led to sporadic tracking of client contacts, client sales, reasons for wins or losses from major distribution proposals, increases/decreases with individual clients, and overall client satisfaction. This lack of a solid database of sales information leads to an inability to identify trends, difficulty in understanding true sales associate performance, and makes management decision making around existing and new products difficult. I recommend that we implement a systematic sales tracking process across all of our sales associates that allows for better understanding of our performance, allows for trending of that performance, and allows for future decisions to be made based upon a stronger base of information.

While Dow Corning had been smoothing out the backoffice infrastructure, however, Reeves and his team also had to ensure that salespeople were being listened to and would want to use the mobile devices and applications. His team approached that by “looking at a day in the life of a salesperson,” he says. “Thinking through their information and task needs, what were their priorities, what were their common tasks, what were the process pain points.” One thing became immediately clear to Reeves: When equipping mobile teams (such as the sales force), less is always more.

I chose to write about what it means to be a good sales representative. I have always wanted a career in sales and am very good at it. Since I was 21 I have been involved in some type of sales career.
