Therefore, our article is not about increasing sales, but about increasing profits by speeding up the sales process.
For this purpose, KeepSolid team has developed a 3-step-strategy for you. This roadmap is supposed to become the go-to formula for your business. Follow a few steps of the below sales process improvement plan and you will cash in on time-saving.
Use Roadmap Planner to develop strategic understanding of your business and look over it from a bird-eye view
Step #1. Take an outside, global perspective to see how to improve your sales process
There are two main ways to improve your sales: building proper plans and putting them into action. The former takes deep understanding of your business and its goals. As soon as you can easily answer where you want your enterprise to get, you can get to outlining your strategy, ideally – using a proper tool like Roadmap Planner. This software helps you build thorough and detailed yet comprehensible plans of any scale.
As to realizing your plans, the trick is to apply the relevant services for each task. Ones that you may already be using to increase your sales and expand the business are lead generation services. However, optimization should be your number 1 priority. Since optimization includes the elaboration of sales niceties, you should answer two important organizational questions: “What’s your opinion about completing the dealmaking process in your company?”, “Do you recognize any flaws in it?”. If you are not sure about the answers, ask your sales managers, who are the frontmen in your communication with clients. It is they who are able to put your sales process into perspective and look at it with a fresh eye.Any minor improvements, however unimportant they may seem, will pay off in the long run.

The key secret at this point is that you don’t have to look for any specific issues, you should see the entirety. The pitfalls in the organization will strike the eye and look out of place. It can be any time-consuming procedures, including such minor as the need to go to another room in order to print a contract. At the end of this step you must answer the question, “What should be changed?”
Optimization of various aspects of the sales process, from capturing leads to winning deals, should be an ongoing process. Any minor improvements, however unimportant they may seem, will pay off in the long run.
