September is an interesting time. You may still be in vacation mode and/or believe that all of your customers and prospects are still in vacation mode. September, however, is officially here. And after September comes the fourth quarter sprint when for far too many business owners and sales professionals it’s time to…
As we head into the fourth quarter of 2019 are you on track to make your sales revenue goals for the year?
If you’re like many, the fourth quarter can mean it’s time to panic because the end of the year is fast approaching and the finish line is much too far away. Here are some recommendations to stop the panic and to start selling more to finish out the year exactly where you need and want to be. If you manage a team have your team go through the steps below.
1.) Calculate exactly where you are in terms of your 2019 sales revenue. You also need to go back and look at your initial 2019 revenue goal to see how close you are to achieving it.
2.) Next, take a look at what’s in the pipeline and likely to close in order to get you that much closer.
3.) Go back and take a look at deals from earlier in the year that have not closed. See if you can resurrect any of them.
4.) Make a list of existing customers that might need additional products or services. Make a plan to start reaching out.
5.) Make a list of everyone that you know or would like to know that should be buying from you. Make a plan to start reaching out.
6.) Make a list of everyone that you know or would like to know that might be able to refer business. Make a plan to start reaching out.
7.) Create your Wish List of Ideal Prospects that you believe might have a need of your offering. Make a plan to start reaching out.
When you do all of the above you will not only be much closer to achieving and/or exceeding your 2019 sales goals – you’ll also be setting yourself up for an even better 2020!
