Most businesses work on a ‘channel right’ approach to sell a product. But it is a struggle to communicate a carefully crafted plan for product merchandising to your sales teams, in the dearth of a common platform. Until your team has the right intel into ‘channel right’ sales, they will not be confident about this form of sales and will keep avoiding it, failing your goal to reach a target audience. Failing to target the buyer with the right products for their sales channel reduces sales potential, limits repeat business, and relies on efforts to find new customers, resulting in missed sales.
Empower your team to communicate effectively so that they can demonstrate the product’s real power and capabilities in the market. The challenge is to provide them with the right tool to enable the sales team to effectively communicate ‘channel right’ selections for each market to demonstrate your brand’s expertise.
