Sales transformation has come to be a new frontier in the era of rampant technical and technological shift. This is due to the ever-evolving sales environment, as well as changing communication preferences.

To bring about sales transformation in this day and age requires more than just a good pitch. There are certain measures that need to be taken, in keeping with the times. But it is doable.

The 2018 Sales Transformation Trinity

To that end, following are the 3 most vital requirements for effective sales transformation in 2018.

1)    Using Analytics and Insight to Capture Customer Attention

A majority of customers hold insight and value, received through the sales experience, as more valuable than all other aspects such as product, brand, and price-value ratio. Commercial insight is slowly proving to be the Holy Grail for sales professionals, with thought leadership taking the backseat, when it comes to conversion and buying action.

This not only alludes to the information which customers are bound to find thought-provoking or interesting. This is insight which will compel a customer to change anywhere from a few to all of their working and purchasing practices.

2)    Develop Expert Sellers and Strategically Superior Managers

Training sellers and bringing managers up to speed will not cut it in 2018, especially when the sales environment changes almost every week. These positions need to be engineered with the times. Talent needs to be developed steadily.

Companies which focus on their front-line sales professionals will find it difficult to keep up with the plethora of challenges in the near future. For this, a comprehensive training schedule, one which includes the managers as well as sellers, will need to be formulated.

Remember, it’s about tailoring the strategy to the ideal customer, teaching the customer something brand new, and taking effective control of the entire sales process.

3)    Align Customer Buying Processes with Internal Enablement

Sales professionals can’t be expected to remember how each customers buys, which is why it is beneficial to keep buying behaviors aligned with the skills of the sales team. This will make sales transformation the primary concern within the day-to-day sales routine of sales professionals.

Additionally, it will allow the customers to align their purchasing activities with each other, which will aid with better sales performance. Due to increasing population and more people connected with each other, the amount of opinions and buying practices are more diverse than ever. This is why the more the customers are aligned with the content strategy, demand generation and internal enablement, the more the sales professionals will succeed with set goals.

Conclusion

The right sales ecosystem, one which features spontaneous strategic optimization, consistent managerial and seller training, as well as commercial analytics, is the key to success for sales in 2018.

Customers are brighter and more integral to the internal sales process than ever before. If a company can channel that involvement, modify it, and take advantage, it will prove advantageous throughout the year and beyond.
