How to Unclog Your Sales Pipeline

The capacity of your sales force isn't just feet on the street. What type of conversations are your reps having with customers? Are they strategic or are they product (read: price) driven? Now, more than ever, sales reps need knowledge about your company and products in order to better respond to your customers with the answers they need. This knowledge is critical in connecting your customers to your company. Sales reps have an overwhelming amount of information coming to them at various stages of the sales cycle. Balancing mission-critical sales activities with both the tools and information that sales reps must leverage can be a difficult task. The result is slowed sales cycles and clogged pipelines.

This webinar will help you:
- Identify obstacles that slow down the sales process.
- Build a plan to give time back to your sales reps.
- Unclog your sales pipelines.

  • How to Use 7 Simple Quota Practices to Skyrocket Sales Recorded: Oct 20 2016 62 mins
    Gerhard Gschwandtner, Founder & CEO, Selling Power, Poornima Mohandas, Product Marketing Manager, CallidusCloud
    Balancing territories properly is critical for maximizing your sales force's success, and doing so correctly means using data to establish sales territories that will reach their full profit potential.

    Gartner estimated that, on average, enterprises will miss the equivalent of 10 percent of total sales in lost revenue that could have been captured with improved processes for defining, assigning and managing territories, quotas and compensation plans. Without data, territory mapping and quota calculations become subjective, favor certain sales reps, and often do not maximize the company's overall revenue potential.

    Join us for this webinar and learn how to:

    - Simplify and accelerate the territory and quota planning process
    - Reduce the risk of errors in the planning process
    - Use data to avoid the most common territory planning pitfalls
    - Give reps clarity on how quotas are calculated and improve sales rep retention
