One of a business’s most valuable assets is its sales team. Whether they are involved in outbound marketing, sales, or business development, each role plays an integral part in the sustainability and growth of the organization. To help ensure that a sales team is achieving its full potential, it is essential to set objectives and provide incentives to motivate workers to reach their goals.
RCG Workgroup understands how challenging it can be to create an attractive sales compensation package that doesn’t break the budget. Decades of sales management experience of top performing teams has defined a clear process for building a competitive sales compensation package.
The Sales Compensation Consulting Process
A comprehensive compensation package allows your sales agents to confidently tie rewards to their level of achievement. This can be an excellent way to motivate workers and enhance overall production. Building a sales compensation package that is attractive and motivating to your employees is a 4 step process.
1. Setting Objectives
Clearly define sales expectations that are realistic but challenging. Keep these goals in mind throughout the process, and establish ways that sales professionals can plan for success.
2. Measuring Performance
Accurately tracking and measuring performance against expectations can help you determine if your sales agents are efficient in their roles. Consistent monitoring can show weak areas before they become a larger problem down the road.
3. Maximizing Sales
Developing a strong compensation package, coupled with employee incentives, can give sales agents the motivation they need to enhance their sales performance. Using special incentive packages for exploring new areas or taking advantage of a sales promotion can drive targeted business growth.
4. Encouraging Employees
Incentive programs and other motivational tools can be highly effective in sustaining sales. These incentives can be mutually beneficial for employers and employees. Allowing your representatives to feel responsible for their wins and publicly praising them will reinforce positive behavior.
