6 Key Elements to Build Your Sales Enablement Strategy

Every move you make in your business is predominantly based on the revenue you want to earn. And revenues are dependent on achieving forecasted sales targets that your sales team may not always meet. Ideally, sales being the backbone of a business, should never falter.
There may be myriad reasons for the sales team not reaching their targets. Maybe your sales process is lacking, or the sales team is not getting enough support and therefore is failing to generate better outcomes. Maybe you have not incorporated a sales enablement strategy in your organization.

As per Spotio, 42% of sales reps are of the opinion that they are not getting enough information before heading for a call1. A serious concern, as sales reps need to have access to the latest data for customer engagement and acquisition.

But first, what is sales enablement

Sales enablement is a strategic process of equipping the sales team with the necessary tools and resources supplies to close more deals. For example, effective sales guidance, latest information, updated content, technology support, and qualitative training to engage with the customers. Sales enablement tools assist reps in acquiring knowledge about the product to engage with customers and present the product correctly to them.

Why do you need a sales enablement strategy?

An effective sales enablement strategy provides sales reps with best practices, knowledge, and resources to succeed. It provides simple techniques to close more deals and scale-up revenue.

Well-defined Sales Process

Specific Sales Goals

Accurate Sales Content
Providing your sales team with high-quality content should be an essential part of your strategy. Sales content can include the latest information about a product, product demos, case studies, blog posts, etc. Sales reps sharing this content with the customers or using it to make informed decisions will create a greater impact on the customers.

Sales Enablement Software
Gone are the days when things were done manually to enable sales. Sales teams use technology and tools to get work done. If you are using sales enablement software, you can centralize your sales resources in a single place. All your reps can access the information, allowing different teams to engage in sales activities without much effort. It also allows you to edit, manage and share sales materials with ease.

Reports and Analytics

Reports help you monitor and correct gaps in your sales process and keep everyone aligned to organizational goals. Insights help you keep an eye on product performances as well as team performances. You can also create specific coaching programs to ensure your sales team performs better based on performance data.

Training and Coaching
Onboarding, coaching, and training are used to train employees to learn about the organization, the products you sell, and the sales process you follow. While onboarding programs help new joiners assimilate faster into your organization, coaching on the job helps your current employees to improve their performance and increase productivity.
