About this course

Course Summary

Keep track of your contacts, drive optimal sales and change leads to customers

Pursuing large critical deals without a process can be chaotic. The efforts put forward to complete a sale will prove useless if the leads with the highest likelihood to close are not handled appropriately. It is important that you are able to recognize and manage these opportunities that may translate to actual revenue.

Selling is the foundation for growth especially in an environment where little or nothing is predictable. Big and small businesses are seeking for every opportunity to turn leads to customers through opportunity tracking. When working with a large territory, especially ones that have many smaller customers, tracking opportunities can be tricky. Balancing the time spent on following-up on opportunities with the time spent acquiring new business is difficult for even the most experienced sales professional. Opportunity tracking is one of the most vital skills for successful selling

Advanced studies have shown that most sales are as a result of effective lead tracking which has often resulted in sales maximisation. P4PE Institute's Sales opportunity planning programme is specifically designed to help you streamline the process of keeping track of opportunities in the pipeline.
