Week 5: Sales Playbook Development
During this stage, I will work with you to design a sales playbook in Trainual for your organization to enable your team to close more deals, increase revenue, improve win rates and exceed sales goals. A playbook helps you translate the founder-led sales success you’ve experienced when validating product-market fit to your first sales team. This enablement tool will help educate your sellers on the following:
Your Ideal Customer Profile (ICP), Sales Messaging Templates, Effective Discovery Questions, Voice Of The Customer Summary, Sales Operation Requirements (CRM, Sales Technology, etc.), Team Intros, Founder’s Story and more.
Let’s face it, according to research completed by The Challenger Customer, over 57% of customers complete a purchase process before reaching out to a sales rep so your team must be ready to advise clients with clarity.
