5 Ways to Ignite Your Q3 Sales Numbers

Posted on Sep 24, 2021 in Blog, Principles of Success, Training and HR

Can you believe it’s already the end of September? Where did the summer go? The push is on to ramp up marketing and sales efforts to hit those 2021 revenue goals!  

So, how will you make the most of the next several months to develop and close business before the end of the year?  We have some tricks to help you achieve the results you need when marketing to Corporate Training & HR!

The following five tips can help you rev up your sales and marketing results – especially when selling to Corporate Training & HR!

1.)    Reward Specific Sales Behavior:

It may be time to develop additional sales rewards to ramp up sales…  Just be certain you are rewarding the RIGHT behavior, aligned with your corporate mission and goals.  Identify specific goals/targets and incentivize people to achieve them accordingly.  Develop incentives around specific metrics you’d like to boost such as:

  • Number of calls per day
  • Number of new prospect calls scheduled
  • Number of sales quotes per month
  • Call-to-meeting conversion rate
  • Meeting-to-quote conversion rate
  • Quote-to-sale conversion rate
  • Closed deals (Reward by # deals; total revenue; % margins; etc.)

2.)    Boost Referrals:

Maximize word-of-mouth marketing and referrals to increase sales.  Satisfied clients may refer you to other qualified prospects in Corporate Marketing & HR, creating a “warm lead” pipeline.  But don’t have to just sit back and wait for referrals. Instead, leverage these tips to increase referrals:

  • Add “Referrals Appreciated” to your print or email newsletter
  • Include “Referrals Appreciated” in your email signature
  • Create a link to a website form for referral submissions and/or testimonials (Note: some people may not be able to provide a referral, but may be willing to provide a testimonial for marketing use, which can hold great value for your corporate marketing initiatives.)
  •  Create a referral program, in which you reward visitors or customers brought to you via other companies’ marketing efforts.

3.)    Invest in a High-Quality (Targeted) Prospect List:

If you are marketing and selling to Corporate Training & HR, Mentor Tech Group’s decision-maker database is exactly what you NEED to achieve success. We are the ONLY company specialized exclusively in Corporate Training & HR. In addition, the Mentor Tech Group Market Intelligence Database is highly accurate and includes:

  • Hand-Built information: MTG’s database of decision-makers is HAND-BUILT as a result of a personal phone conversation with each contact.
  • Free 4-Month Updates*: Every contact in the MTG market intelligence database is updated every 4 months, to achieve the highest possible rate of accuracy for your benefit!
  • Job function-based: We identify the job function of each person in our database, not just their title, ensuring that they meet certain criteria to be included in our lists. At MTG, we call these job functions “Job Codes”.
  • Direct Contact Info: Our database contains direct contact information for decision-makers in your target industry (often with direct-dial phone numbers and email addresses).  Mentor Tech Group’s database is simply second-to-none!

4.)    Create & Promote Value-Added Content:

Identify industry topics that would be of interest to your prospects. Develop content accordingly and keep it informative, educational, and consultative in nature. (Remember, content should be 90% informative and less than 10% promotional!) Be sure you have content developed in a variety of formats including blog articles, white papers, case studies, webinars, eBooks, etc.

5.)    Use Your List to Promote your Content:

You must actively USE your marketing list!  It may seem obvious, but you cannot simply buy a high-quality list, import it into your CRM system, and then expect prospects to come to you…  You must PLAN to ACTIVELY market to your list.  Use your content developed in #4 above for this purpose.  Delivering content of value to prospects on a regular basis builds trust and keeps you at the forefront of their minds so that when they’re ready to buy, they will think of YOU first!

Actively promote content via various marketing channels: your corporate blog, e-newsletter, and social media channels.  Create a website landing page where you will direct prospects to sign up for your webinar or to receive a white paper.  The result?  a.) A pipeline of interested “hand-raisers” who have requested more information, and b.) The opportunity to achieve great ROI on your list purchase!  What could be better?  (Tip: Be sure to follow up on these leads with a phone call within 48 hours to achieve the best results.  Time is of the essence!)

Okay, now it’s time to get back to business and make the most of the remaining few months of 2021!
