Why Payroll Salespeople Need To Keep Score

Why Payroll Salespeople Need To Keep Score

There is no getting around it; the payroll sales profession is a numbers game. And as with all games, you need to keep the score of your wins, losses, and other vital sales performance statistics.

Unfortunately, many salespeople (and their sales leaders) don’t have the discipline to track their sales activity or performance. Specifically, they do not:

  • Keep score of what they are doing each day/week.
  • Track the right type of sales metrics, i.e., proposals sent, proposals closed, order value, etc.

Although a proposal pipeline report is the lifeblood of a salesperson, all payroll salespeople need to track:

  1. Proactive sales activities, i.e., outbound calls made and networking meetings.
  2. The number of appointments, demonstrations, and/or webinars scheduled/completed each week.
  3. Proposal/quote closing ratio.
  4. The prospects that represent their short-term sales opportunities.
  5. The size of their e-mail marketing database (this is critical to a salesperson's sales success).

Here’s The #1 Reason Why You Need To Keep Score.

Tracking the right sales activities exposes all the under and over-performing areas for a salesperson as it's critical to a salesperson's short/long-term success; therefore, I recommend having an accountability friend or team leader to help a salesperson stay laser-focused on their sales goals/quota.
