How Sales Outsourcing Increases Revenue

If at first you don’t succeed…OUTSOURCE!

This is business. This isn’t riding a bike. If your company does not have the resources to sell efficiently and effectively, then outsource these duties to a company that can increase your sales and overall revenue. Turning your sales duties over to an outside firm of experts can help by:

Utilizing an Expert Sales Force: Your outsourced sales team has the experience and knowledge to start selling right away.

Dedication: Your Outsourced sales firm does nothing but sell. Selling is in their blood!

Save Money: You will not have to hire or train anyone in-house. This means that you will be saving money while also increasing your revenue. That is what we like to call a win-win.

More Time: You are not a salesperson, so why were you wasting your time trying to sell? Outsourcing allows you to go back to doing what you do best – growing your company!

At the end of the day, increasing your revenue is the driving force behind your sales campaign. And what is the driving force in sales? Experience. Trying to utilize inexperienced salespeople is like running in place. You are doing a lot of work, but you are simply not going to get anywhere.

So if you are really interested in growing your business, give outsourcing some serious consideration.

Outsourcing is becoming a common practice for many businesses as more and more companies are realizing the benefits of utilizing the skills of others to help their business venture succeed. So let Springboard take care of your sales while you focus on growing your business.

5 Ways Sales Force Outsourcing Can Increase Revenues

Relationship Selling vs. Transaction Selling

If we have said it once, we have said it a thousand times…

Business is all about building relationships!

While we are not saying that a transactional approach to selling is ineffective, what we are saying is that it is not the most efficient way to make a sale. The main difference between relationship selling and transactional selling is in the approach.

•      Transactional Selling: This strategy is all about short-term solutions. The sales rep is primarily concerned with the promotion and selling of the product with little or no emphasis on customer needs. This strategy, also known as traditional selling, is all about the single sale.

•      Relationship Selling: This strategy is all about building long-term relationships. The sales rep gets to know his/her customer, their needs and their wants. Then and only then does the salesperson even think about trying to make a sale.

One of these sales solutions has a higher probability of multiple transactions. We will let you guess which sales strategy we are talking about…

If you guessed Relationship Selling, then you are right!

Organizations that utilize a relationship building approach to sales have a competitive edge over their rivals. Companies that practice relationship selling continually see substantial growth in revenues and lower expenses, year after year. This is because it is cheaper to keep an existing client than it is to establish new clients with each and every sale.

It has been said that 80% of an organization’s business comes from 20% of its customers, those satisfied customers who keep coming back for more.

So as you can see, a relationship-based sales strategy has tremendous upside.

Using Your Time Wisely

Running your own company is no easy task. You have to address every aspect of your business with the utmost diligence and, let’s face it, you just do not have the time to give everything the attention it deserves. So where do you cut corners? Can you afford to cut corners?

There has to be a better solution.

There is. Outsourcing.

What if your business could outsource business development to a team of professionals at a fraction of the cost? That’s where Springboard comes in. At Springboard we offer outsourced sales solutions for businesses in the professional services arena. It’s simple, while you focus on delivery, we bring our sales expertise and connections to focus on your business development challenges. Springboard focuses in the four critical areas of business development:

Exposure

•     Networking

•     Speaking Opportunities

•     Social Media – research, connect with and directly interact with potential prospects, join and become active in relevant groups, post pertinent articles/white papers to help you be seen as an expert

Partnerships

•     Identify potential markets for partners

•     Research who’s who in the marketplace

•     Connect with and Directly interact with potential partners

•     Make introductions to client once identified and qualified

Prospecting

•     Lead Generation

•     Lead Qualification

Communication

When done right, outsourcing will both help your company grow and save money. This article from About.com outlines the top 4 advantages to outsourcing your business development needs.

  1. Focus on Core Activities: Every aspect of your business requires great attention to detail. Outsourcing those activities in which you simply do not have the resources to address properly, will allow you to re-focus your time without sacrificing quality or service.
  2. Save Money: Perhaps you do not have the money to hire another, much needed employee. Instead of ignoring some aspect of your business or hiring an employee that you cannot afford, outsource your extra needs to a well-qualified company. Outsourcing will often cost less than hiring a full-time employee, meaning you are getting the attention to detail you need, but at a fraction of the cost.
  3. Flexibility: Instead of hiring seasonal workers/employee during your busy season, outsource your additional work.
  4. Continuity & Risk Management: Outsourcing will provide a level of continuity to the company while reducing the risk that a substandard level of operation would bring to the company.
