Sales is a team sport. It requires everyone to be working together in support of the customer.
Sounds obvious, but apparently it’s not.
Many of the businesses I consult with haven’t figured this out. Instead, each department has its own role and its own performance measures. Operating on an island of their own, in isolation of others.
- Marketing rarely interacts with sales (other than blaming them for not closing leads).
- Customer Service works alone, periodically pointing the finger at Sales for setting unachievable expectations.
- Operations or Production work to meet delivery targets and customer expectations.
But where is Sales in all of this?
Why aren’t these departments working together and collaborating in support of the customer? After all, if we want to accelerate sales, don’t we need to put our heads together?
These are all key to being proactive in sales.
