In our last two articles we talked about Sales Prospecting, discussing why it is crucial to business growth and Why People Don’t Enjoy Sales Prospecting, along with some suggestions on how to enjoy it more.
In this post we will address the excuse that people are too busy with the work they already have to be bothered with sales prospecting.
A frequent complaint we hear is that people are just SO busy with the work they have that they don’t have the time or bandwidth for sales prospecting. This can be a GOOD problem to have, for a while. Then it becomes disastrous when you wrap up all the existing work only to realize that your sales funnel is EMPTY!
Here are a few ways to address issue and to avoid this dilemma:
