SESSION 1 – SALES PLANNING
In this sales planning session, we will focus on high-level goals like revenue and the activity targets that lead to revenue. This also means being focused on your ideal customer, as well as the buyer personas that you will be targeting. For most B2B organizations it is better to have a narrower focus and then grow to adjacent targets. We will also talk about pricing methodology and the associated sales and marketing costs to support the revenue growth.
Deliverables Include: Buyer Persona Template and the Start of the Sales Plan
