Preparing to sell

Create your sales plan


In a business, your ultimate goal is to make money. To help you do this a sales plan is required.

A sales plan describes and quantifies over a period of time how sales of your products or services will be made and to whom.

A sales plan includes information about your business and customers. It can help you map out ways to increase sales with current clients as well as expand your business to attract new clients.

A successful sales plan is actionable and has a method for evaluating results once the plan has run its course.

You would normally create your own sales plan, often with the input of employees.
