Three key areas for any business leader to think about regarding sales maximization are: Prospecting, Content Marketing and Events and Goal Setting and Tracking. Revenue is not the same as sales. Revenue is the outcome of having a good selling effort. The focus for this conversation is about creating a great sales process which will lead to successful selling to generate the revenue you need. The secret to great selling is just conversation. By uncovering the problem your offering can help a customer solve, and providing proof of what your solution will offer, quickly your prospects will become customers.
