A Sales Strategy is an approach to how, over the medium to long term, you position, promote, and sell your products or services to qualified prospects.
There are several broad strategies:
– ‘Canned selling’
– Inbound selling
– Outbound selling
– Niche selling
– Solution Selling
– Consultative selling
– Partnership selling
The best sales strategy for a company will depend on its:
• products or services
• target market
• business goals.
A sales strategy should be flexible and adaptable to changes in the market or the company’s business.
