Products, service, and management are important aspects of business, but they alone do not generate revenue. Salespeople do. The most profitable and enduring companies are those that create and maintain a “sales culture.”
What is a sales culture? One might easily identify a nation based upon its dominant and distinctive culture--a common set of beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors. Likewise, every business enterprise has a culture of its own, and some are more successful than others. A sales culture encourages ambition, innovation, and behaviors beneficial to the enterprise. It spawns and sustains a shared vision—a company-wide focus--which is the generation of revenue.
What does a sales culture look like? A sales force is not a vending machine that customers stroll up to and purchase goods and services. The sales-driven organization realizes this, and maintains its focus: It invests in sales people, sales leads, sales collateral, sales leadership, and sales development.
Maintaining a sales culture: Just as a Super Bowl-winning football team never stops learning, practicing, and coaching, a successful sales team constantly strives to improve. A sales manager must routinely assess the “players” on his team to identify those who lead and contribute to the sales culture, and those who may require additional development.
