PHASE 4: PROSPECTING

Fill the sales funnel with enough opportunities to make the revenue goal.

 

Getting access to high-value buyers is the most critical activity a sales person can do. Having a repeatable process to gain access makes you less reliant to marketing and removes risk from your revenue plan. The ability to gain access at scale will have a drastic impact on your new business production.
