Written by Robert F. Abbott

Continued from page 1

Using our offsite sales reps example, you might decide to send a group email once a week, and in it provide informationrepparttar sales reps want. You'll also add information that you want to convey to them, especially information aboutrepparttar 140921 benefits of targeting and margins.

In addition, you'll also call each rep individually once a month to review his or her personal performance. In these calls, you'll deal with their individual performance. You'll also ask about their particular needs and wants, and try to satisfy those needs.

As well as developing strategies and tactics, you'll also schedule some evaluations. Periodically, you'll sit down and ask yourself how wellrepparttar 140922 offsite people are targeting and what proportion of their sales come through high margin products.

If they're doing well, you'll stick torepparttar 140923 course you set earlier. Onrepparttar 140924 other hand, if performance doesn't meet your standards, then you could look at increasingrepparttar 140925 number of contacts, andrepparttar 140926 duration of each contact. Maybe you need to bring everyone intorepparttar 140927 office once a quarter, while still maintaining your weekly group mailing and individual contacts monthly.

In summary, asrepparttar 140928 number of offsite employees and service providers increases,repparttar 140929 pressure to develop plans to communicate with them will grow as well. To makerepparttar 140930 most of this communication, start with strategic issues that define why you want to be in contact with them, and why they would want to be in contact with you.
