How to Build a Minimum Viable Sales Plan

First-time sales leader? Building your first sales plan? Looking to scale?

Building a revenue engine from scratch is a daunting task. Building a revenue engine that’s predictable, manageable, scalable, and profitable is an even bigger challenge. And yet the single most critical success factor for any start- up is its ability to sell. Investors know this. Which is why they’re rigorously scrutinizing how close you are to “Revenue-Ready.”

Enter the Minimum Viable Sales Plan!

Leading your company’s sales function requires you to learn the core components of a viable, “sales-ready” program:

  • Sales Goals – Set realistic sales goals aligned with your budget and revenue targets, and track key performance indicators to make it happen.
  • Sales Process – Design a sales process that minimizes cost-effort and maximizes conversions. 
  • Sales Effort – Estimate the activities and hours necessary to properly execute and manage your sales and marketing program.
  • Sales Team – Understand the talent and timing of key hires for your sales team. 
  • Sales Spend – Determine the financial investment required in your team, resources, and program elements to reach your revenue target. 

Whether starting or scaling, the MVSP helps ventures accelerate their revenue generation by teaching entrepreneurs the precise way to design their sales program, and systemize their sales effort. This workshop will primarily focus on B2B sales, but the methodology can be applied to any venture.

Date: Thursday, October 29

Time: 1:00 – 3:30PM (2 hour presentation + Q&A)
