Sales Tips


SALES is the lifeblood of any business. It all starts with the CONVERSION of the opportunities you get and then the OPTIMISATION of those opportunities.

CONVERSION is about turning the enquiry into a sale. It’s as much about educating a customer on why they should buy from your business as it is your absolute belief in what your business sells … and about having a great sales process.

OPTIMISATION is maximising your sales by increasing the average purchase a customer makes with you. This requires thought, planning and training.

To run a successful small business you’ll need to learn how to improve the sales in your business, including increasing your win rate and the quality of work you do so that both your business, team and customer benefit.  By working on these you will increase your sales, resulting in more cash coming into your business.
