Motivate Your Sales Team

If you think about the sales process, it can often be broken down into a series of discrete procedures that sales representatives have to go through. Collectively referred to as a pipeline, much of the initial work is done identifying and making first contact with prospects. From that point, leads a qualified until expressions of interest are generated. Sales pipelines continue to flow towards the final stage which involves closing the deal. Few sales managers won’t be familiar with this concept.


However, they might not understand that each part of the process of moving leads along the pipeline towards the final goal of making a sale takes a degree of motivation. This is especially so when different people handle different parts of the process. Gamifying each part of the process helps to keep your team motivated so that the pipeline continues to flow at all times. By rewarding people with virtual currency, points, or mini-bonuses as they progress each stage in real-time, so you can motivate your sales team at every turn. After all, the more you have to flow through your sales pipeline at any point in time, the better the sales figures are likely to look at the end of the next reporting period.
