Sales are just as important as marketing

When starting on a new business venture, there can often be millions and millions of things that need to be considered. While most new business’ divert all their energy and attention to developing effective marketing strategies, they often fail to focus on improvising on sales and ensuring that most sales are “closed.”

Although it is very important for businesses to build strong marketing strategies and ensure that their business reaches their desired audience, it is just as essential for businesses to ensure that products/services are sold to their audience and that their business doesn’t waste time and energy.

Tamara’s Story:

Tamara is thinking of strategies that can help her business prosper. She wonders how great of an impact sales have on the functionality of a business. .

The Solution:

What should you do?

You should remember that sales are an essential aspect of any new business and thus, it is very important to focus on closing sales.

There are a few very essential questions that you should ask yourself:

  • How much emphasis should my team put on sales?
  • Is sales the most important aspect of any business?
  • How does the number of sales closed impact my business?

Sales are an essential aspect of any business. While having a strong marketing strategy, a stellar commercial idea, modern technology, and a professional team are all important to a business, a business is nothing without an effective sales team, especially one that knows how to close sales effectively.
While an effective marketing team deserves a considerable amount of attention and drives favorable conditions for your business to operate upon, it is often more important for your sales team to drive in the capital and close business deals. Here are two very important reasons why you need to seriously start focusing on the sales that your business successfully closes:

Sales help bring in the money:

A new business requires capital from the first day onwards. Capital is required for setting up operations, funding the launch of new products and services, paying the employees, investing in latest equipment and technology, and in resources that ensure that the company is heading in the right direction. Sales support the needs of your new business and are, in other words, the lifeblood your business.

Sales highlight the success of a business:

Many successful businessmen use sales as a benchmark to determine the success of their business. At the end of the day, the number of sales that you make play a more important role in determining the success of your business as opposed to the number of jobs you’ve created in the market, or the number of products and services that you have developed.
