Achieving Targets
The point I want to make is that we can do better. The key to doing better in good times and bad times is to be more competitive (Not with price, not with criticism). Giving our sales people PRODUCT KNOWLEGE and SALES TRAINING gets us more sales, even in the more typical slow times. It builds confidence and belief.
Why not do what we do, give them a weekly target and if they hit it they get an increased level of commission on anything else they put in in that week. The trick for us is to help the sales people earn as much as possible, we love paying out big cheques because when they earn we earn. Also, if i pay residual commissions i could offer double residual commission when they are on holiday if they are on target weekly 75% of the previous year.
Sales teams can also be motivated with good examples. A highly motivated team can be formed with the help of a good example set by a particular employee.
Importance of On line marketing
Making Connections--Online Or Off Whether in the Internet world or the traditional bricks and mortar business environment, marketing is about making connections with people. Standing Out From Crowd Just as in the offline world, online marketers need to know and understand how to stand out from their competition. Offering Valued And Valuable Information Internet consumers are looking for quick, easy-to-find and easy-to-use information to help them meet their needs. Marketing About Measurement-Internet marketers can easily track the number of visitors
What can be achieved
Unfortunately, in so doing, he missed what the customer wanted entirely. He would have vainly spent hours preparing and faxing the quote, and then wondering why he didn't close the sale. He was well equipped to respond to the technical specifications of the problem, but didn't have the faintest understanding of what the customer really wanted, and therefore, little chance of closing the sale.

To overcome the limitations and boundaries of this belief, let's consider ourselves to be much more than just problem solvers. Let's consider ourselves to be accomplished salespeople who can understand what a customer wants in a deep and detailed way. Let's consider ourselves people who can put together our products and services into offers that give the customer what he/she really wants.

Importance of STP
In order to be an effective and efficient business, you should seek out your target customer market. There are three main issues to consider when determining your target market:
Market segmentation
Market segmentation involves grouping your various customers into segments that have common needs or will respond similarly to a marketing action. Each segment will respond to a different marketing mix strategy, with each offering alternate growth and profit opportunities.
After segmenting the market based on the different groups and classes, you will need to choose your targets. No one strategy will suit all consumer groups, so being able to develop specific strategies for your target markets is very important.
Positioning is developing a product and brand image in the minds of consumers. It can also include improving a customer's perception about the experience they will have if they choose to purchase your product or service.
Future prospect
After 5 years down the line. I will be a person with much more responsible, competent, knowledgeable and an respectful person in the organisation. I will be an valuable asset whom the organization will never want to lose at any cost. As this organization have given my career I will be loyal and contributing for the successful through out my career in the organization.

• Differentiate our product from the competition’s
• Address important customer buying criteria
• Articulate key product (or company) characteristics
Market position before I can create an effective brand for Our business (or product, or service). Determining market position depends on three main tasks:

Attraction: Provide values and attributes that customers genuinely want or need. Distinction: Provide values and attributes that customers can receive only when they work with your business or buy your product.

Importance of sales
All financial metrics, dramatic spikes up or down should raise a flag, and you may have to do more research to determine what caused the spike. Dramatic upward spikes, for instance, might be a sign that a company has a terrific new product that is selling very well, but it might also suggest a company has had recent, large-scale layoffs.
The Sales per Employee indicator is most useful for comparing companies within a similar industry, or within a specific sector of an industry. Service companies, manufacturing companies, and retailers, for instance, generate such different results that it is not particularly useful to compare between them.
