Hire Freelance Sales Manager

Sales is an important business function as it helps in generating revenue. Sales management is one of the key operational areas (KOA) for any company. The focus of sales management is to maximize the effectiveness of salespersons as well as ensure that the desired growth target is achieved. If you have a small or mid-sized sales team, hiring a sales manager will help in increasing your sales as well as improving the performance of your staff. The biggest advantage of having a regional sales manager is that he can set up key performance indicators for sales representatives and monitor them continuously. This helps ensure that the team achieves its goals month after month.

What Sales Managers Do?

Sales managers play a pivotal role in the training and development of a company's sales staff. They set individual targets for sales representatives, coach them on a daily basis and monitor all inbound transactions related to sales. Sales experts are also responsible for upselling products and services to existing customers, and retaining customers who do not wish to repurchase the product or service. They have a good knack for business development strategies and can acquire new customers for the company. They ensure that the buyer’s journey from start to finish is pleasant so that they turn out to be loyal to the company. Sales managers manage the entire sales function by defining SOPs and formulating strategies and action plans, keeping the staff motivated at all times. They can work remotely either with a field-based sales team or telesales team. Most sales managers are familiar with sales management systems like SalesForce, Pipedrive and TeamWave. They can implement these systems in your organization to enable real-time pipeline analysis and reporting.
