Buyer-Focused Sales Playbook
Improving Sales Team Process and Effectiveness
RevGen Partners helped a mid-market internet and cable company increase the success of their frontline sales representatives by creating a buyer-focused sales approach and playbook. The playbook featured a clear sales process and methodology based on customer suggestions, best practices, and employee insights.
This client was struggling with the sales results of their field sales representatives and needed to restructure a division to achieve sales goals. The sales team had ambiguous sales processes and on-boarding practices that led to high turnover and difficulty hitting monthly and quarterly goals.
The company needed a defined sales process and methodology to better train new resources, retain quality sales representatives, and increase sales.
RevGen collaborated with the client to develop a sales process and methodology that aligned with customer buying stages.
We began with a comprehensive review of the structure, compensation, processes, talent management, and performance management of the sales force. Next we solicited feedback from our client’s customers to identify business buying stages and preferences to understand how our client could best meet their needs.
After the review, we helped the client:
Lastly, we provided guidance for implementing, communicating, and reinforcing the new sales process and methodology in the field to maximize the adoption and application of the new process.
"The RevGen Team helped our sales organization establish a comprehensive sales approach and create a sales toolkit and onboarding materials that enabled our front-line sales representatives to be more effective. This approach has resulted in a 24 percent improvement in sales, year over year, for this channel. RevGen collaborated with our team but also challenged our current practices and assumptions – raising the bar significantly. I greatly appreciate RevGen’s partnership values, industry insights, and project leadership. Our sales results continue to reflect the improvements started with this initiative."
