Description and Impact
Our organization promotes the use of sustainable technologies for small and medium agricultural producers in rural Central American communities.
Targeting consumers at the bottom-of-the-pyramid (BoP) comes with a unique set of challenges and considerations, particularly for social enterprises, like us, in emerging markets. Currently, our sales targets are only set annually at the top level, but not measured by number of visits, calls, presentations, etc made to potential clients. The Experteer would need to work closely with our sales team in the Nicaraguan office and in the field to learn their current methods.
Currently, our sales targets are only set annually at the top level, but not measured by number of visits, calls, presentations, etc made to potential clients.
After the Experteer has become knowledgeable about our current sales methods, specific results may include recommendations for our direct sales strategy, identification of sales targets, methods to track these targets, a method to put new sales strategies into place, and other recommendations to benchmark our sales team with industry-standards.
- identify gaps in our current sales team's skills and hold training and workshops to improve their methods.
- identify opportunities in our direct sales model and then provide recommendations to formalize our sales strategy and implementation.
- Introduce our sales team to new ways to measure the success of our efforts, and to teach the sales team to track these efforts effectively for monthly review. This could include (but would not be limited to) bench marking our sales metrics against industry-standards.
