Every business thrives merely on its sales as the revenue generation revolves around the efficiency of its sales strategy. Business is like war. If its sales strategy is correct, you will be able to quickly identify prospects, opportunities and any upcoming problems.

Why is it important?

Sales is the lifeblood of every business. You need a sales strategy to clearly define what you need to achieve through sales, what market or customer base you want to go after, and what and how you are going to sell it. A clear sales plan helps you know how you are positioned to achieve the revenue targets you have identified, how will you sell more products and services, what additional support will your team need to achieve the desired increases, how will you acquire new customers, how will you expand existing relationships with customers, and where is the most logical place to look for growth.

We plan a month-to-month forecast of the level of sales you want to achieve and how will you achieve your goals taking into account the summary of last 3 years data to analyze how many customers you lost each year, how many new customers you gain each year and the particular months where you gain or lose more customers than usual.
