Guidelines and Questions for Part 2 Due Week 7
After you have finished assessing the details in your newly obtained client list, also called your book of business, you met with your manager, Casey. In your meeting, you discussed your report, which was Part 1 of the project (turned in during Week 4). Casey provided you with some feedback and has now asked you to take the steps in the planning process to work with these clients to meet an established quota.
Casey notified all of the accounts by e-mail that you will be contacting them soon. She wants to meet with you at the end of the week to discuss the pre-approach to your new contacts and discuss your strategies for moving them through the pipeline. Using the metric report you created in Part 1, and Chapters 10 through 15, answer each of the following questions in a report form for your meeting with Casey. For questions where you need to justify your answer, Casey has asked you to use sources to support your reasoning. These sources are to be cited in APA format.
Reflect back to the communication style assessment you completed at the beginning of the course. Each of the four styles is represented within the 20 accounts you are expected to contact and maintain. Using the details in Chapter 5 regarding adapting and flexing your style, consider how you will need to adjust your approach and communication style/delivery. Select one contact from each of the four styles and discuss how you will need to flex and adapt your approach to match that of the client.
From the potential sales total and closing likelihood, what is a fair sales quota to be set for the coming quarter? Justify your answer.
Which accounts have completed the needs analysis and discovery stage? Which accounts have high potential for closing but have not had the needs analysis completed yet?
Which account(s) seem ready to buy, even without a comprehensive needs analysis or product presentation? What concerns or threats exist from the eagerness of these accounts?
Which account is in need of a presentation and has a number of locations? How will your approach and process differ for this firm versus that of other firms? Explain your answer.
