Target Territory Analysis Tool is a great tool for sales people

The ITD TARGET Territory Analysis Tool gives sales people a simple format to create an overview of their territory. It includes a simple way for categorising their accounts according to the revenue/margins achieved into A, B & C accounts. It also allows for factors in the potential revenue/margins achievable, especially with B & C accounts. The tool includes details of current products/services and potential sales opportunities.. In a snapshot the sales person can see an overview of their territory. They can see how balanced it is. Are they relying too heavily on one, or two major accounts? Do they have a good spread of accounts? Is there a good spread of products across the territory? The Target Territory Analysis Tool is written in excel and will fit with any CRM system. – See more at:

Great feedback from communication skills training in Moscow

Young professionals relish communication skills training

Moscow

We ran a one day communication skills training workshop in Moscow in September. The participants were all young business professionals. Following the training we sought feedback via email. They really enjoyed the training and found it very useful. The session was delivered in English, a language requirement for them. They enjoyed the various models covered including the ITD personality model, assertiveness model and our questioning model.

It was a pleasure working with this group who were hungry to learn and apply every idea to their situations and personal experiences.

Territory management tips for sales managers #1

Good territory management includes processes and skills

Territory management training

Territory management tips for sales managers # 1

Good territory management training covers both the processes and skills your team needs. Processes give clear expectations on the structure you require. The skills covers the specific behaviours required. And they need to master both. It’s no good being a great natural sales person if you can’t complete the reporting and analysis required. Then again too much time on the latter could mean not enough in dialogue with clients. With the right training your team will be operating within clear expectations as to how they will spend their time. – See more at:

Why do some sales people need territory management training #3

Sales planning is often missed by sales people

Territory management training

Why do some sales people need territory management training #3

Good territory management includes planning your diary. It means planning your travel and your effort. Rather than reacting to the needs of your accounts as they arise, you plan when and where you will be. Of course there may well be a need to be flexible and react to important needs as they arise. This planning means looking at you diary and your accounts and planning where you will be on certain days of the week or weeks of the month to maximise efficiency. – See more at:

Why do some sales people need territory management training #2

Being aware of personalities is key in sales

time management training

Why do some sales people need territory management training #2

Focussing your effort will bring rewards. You know which are the most lucrative accounts, but you also know which people you prefer to work with. And the two may not be the same. So being a social person you might be drawn to spend too long with less productive accounts, with people who are nicer to deal with.

Then again there are social clients who are very chatty. They are sometimes called the sales persons friend. They will talk and talk, but they will do the same with any sales person who will give them the time of day. Other clients can be very direct and not chat at all. This can be awkward for some sales people, but it just needs a different approach.

Our territory management training helps sales people focus their time by dealing with each personality in a tailored way.

Sales Tip for Lawyers – ITD Legal Blog – Needs and Wants

Needs & Wants in Sales for Lawyers

Communication skills are key for persuasion and explanation

Every prospect has needs and wants. The needs are those logical aspects, such as the need for legal counsel for a client’s employment issues. The need to have cases handled professionally. The need to have up to date legal advice in the necessary jurisdictions.

The wants are more emotional drivers, such as wanting to work with a lawyer they like, or wanting to work with a lawyer they see as similar to themselves. Another want might be to be discreet, so that as little press coverage as possible is made of the situation. Needs are the drivers behind the requirement for a lawyer, or law firm. Wants tend to be the drivers behind the choice of law firm and lawyers. Wants are the reasons why a particular law firm is chosen. Not always, because sometimes there might be a logical need behind the decisions, such as to consolidate suppliers, for example. But more often wants are the drivers.

One lawyer’s ability to communicate in a way preferred by a prospect can lead to a business win. That engagement and understanding wins the day.

It is an essential sales skill for lawyers to understand, or get to understand by asking questions, the needs and wants of prospects. Only by doing this can you present your service in a way which is relevant to the prospect, or client.

Which means going into a pitch blind without any preliminary meeting is going to prove very difficult to win.

Territory management training with ITD helps sales people plan & execute these plans for improved performance

Why is territory management training a must for some sales people?

You probably enjoy having a territory because it gives you the freedom you want from a job or career. You probably enjoy selling because you prefer not to have the routine of a desk bound job. This means you probably need the structure our territory management approach will give. You will still have the freedom but underpinned with structure.
