Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Targeting consumers at the bottom-of-the-pyramid (BoP) comes with a unique set of challenges and considerations, particularly for social enterprises in emerging markets. The goal of this project is to first identify opportunities in our team’s current direct sales model and then provide recommendations to formalize our sales strategy and implementation. Currently, the sales targets are only set annually at the top level, but not measured by number of visits, calls, presentations, etc made to potential clients.

Great for people with sales and business strategies skills! Interested but not the right length? Like this organization and have an idea how your skills can help? Message us at: match@movingworlds.org.  

DELIVERABLES

This project would entail learning important sales targets that would increase sales and creating a system to track these targets for monthly review. The Experteer would need to work closely with our sales team in the Nicaraguan office and in the field to learn their current methods, provide recommendations, and finally implement the optimized direct sales model.

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.

NEEDED SKILLS:

  • Sales
  • Business Strategy

NEEDED LANGUAGES:

  • Spanish

We Provide These Local Benefits


ACCOMMODATION

We will offer accommodation for the Experteer for the duration of the project. This accommodation includes a home-stay in San Isidro by families who have been trained and have hosted visitors for several years. The experience from previous visitors has always rated the home-stay experience one of the best components of their trip. 

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

Our local team can provide you with several recommendations of beautiful locations and hidden gems throughout Nicaragua to explore during your free time.
