The 300 Day CHALLENGE to Achieve your Goals

The 300 Day Challenge to Achieve Your Goals

If you’re ready to take sales, or anything, to the next step and achieve your goals and dreams, here is your 300-day challenge!

Setting the goal

The goal you want to set for yourself to accomplish at the end of 300 days should take you out of your comfort zone. It needs to be ambitious and not easily achievable, such as doubling your revenue or quadrupling your sales, or becoming a certain position at your company; of course, don’t make it something impossible (i.e., “make a billion dollars” while you could make it, it’s undoubtedly, extremely improbable). Again, these goals need to be large enough that people think you are crazy; even if you fail to reach will still make a massive change in your life. Finally, don’t set too large a time frame for your goals. A lot can change three to five years down the line, and it seems far away enough not to worry about in the present time. With 300 days, it’s...

Ready to take the next step to boost your industrial sales performance and wow your team? Kyle Milan breaks down the tips and tricks to make a winning strategy for next year, starting right now!

Audit Your Team

Take a look at your current team and how they are performing. Know who the power players in your s team are and the weak links. With how things stand right now, ask yourself; how will the team perform next year? Take a hard look at where gaps are present and what sort of changes you can implement to bridge those gaps and be ready with your feet running for next year.

Does your team have the proper tools?

Sometimes it’s not the team itself but the resources they lack holding them back. It’s easier to make calls with an integration like Aircall linked directly to a CRM such as Hubspot to quickly dial in potential clients rather than looking them up and dialing one at a time. Do whatever you can to make your sales team's job far...

How To Pitch Technical Products & Services

Pitching Your Technical Products and Services 

The Purpose of the Pitch

When looking at the purpose of your pitch, you have to look beyond just the close and to the next step. It’s common knowledge that you are trying to sell something, but you must keep that in mind. Your potential client has expressed interest in buying your service and product and needs final assurance that this is the right step for them. Your goal is to take them to that next step of confidence. Always think about your ideal goal, and focus your pitch on hitting that goal. The initial pitch is an information-gathering session to make your client your partner; your job is to move them to the next stage of the pipeline from where they are now.

The Material

Your material is auxiliary to your pitch. This includes your website, brochure, print material, pitch deck, and anything that works in your favor. Make sure your material looks presentable, is prepared, and isn’t too overwhelming. More often...

Technical Sales Prospecting Tips – Circle of Influence

If you’re in technical sales, or any kind of sales for that matter, you usually focus on the decision maker. This is the person who can say yes, sign that contract, and close that deal. However, it can often be hard to get in touch with them, especially if you don’t know them personally. Maybe you’ve used all the outreach methods you can think of, but you still haven’t been able to connect with them.

The good news is that you don’t always have to target just the decision maker. Although this isn’t often mentioned in technical sales training, there are other people you can reach out to and get nearer to that sale.

When you can’t approach the decision maker, the people you can target are the circle of influence around them. These are people who can impact the decision maker’s buying decisions. The circle of influence can sway the decision one way or another, depending on their opinion or research. If you are able to build a...
