Is the city growing? If so, how fast? What parts of the city are growing most?

What is the city’s population breakdown by age, income, and occupation?

How many drugstores are here now in the city? Where are they? How well are they doing?

What is the quality of the city’s schools, churches, parks, and culture?

On an Area Within the City

What is the area’s population? Is it growing? Are the people chiefly native-born or foreign?

How do people make their living? Are they mostly white collar workers, labors, retired persons?

Are the people all ages or are the mainly old, middle aged, or young?

What is the average family income? What is their total buying power?

How many other drugstores are in the area? How success full are they?

On a Specific Site within the Are

Are neighboring business healthy?

How close is the nearest competing drugstore?

Is the site surrounded by well-kept homes?

Is there plenty of parking space available next to or near the site?

Is the site accessible by bus?

How far will customers have to travel to shop in drugstore?

Is there a steady flow of foot traffic by the site?

What is the floor area?

Is there any room to expand?

Can deliveries be made from the near?

Will near by stores draw customers to the site?

Is the appearance of the site pleasing? Will customer want to shop there>

Is there any divider on the road that may discourage some potential customers?

How we manage our Salespeople

We follow some policies to manage our sales people. These ways are described in below

Setting a sales target and then shoving it down their throats.

“People, especially salespeople, don’t like being dictated to,” says Mr. Nokib Khan Executive Manger of Neem Aerosol Bangladesh Ltd.He believes the old school of sales management tells people what to do. But the new school invites salespeople into the process of setting quotas and goals, allowing them to figure out what they are capable of achieving.

If you think this sounds like letting the inmates run the asylum, think again. According to one manager, the great paradox is that salespeople will invariably come up with a more aggressive sales goal when left to their own devices than if their manager sets the target.

“If you tell a salesperson he must do $2 million dollars next year, he will call you crazy and say it’s impossible,” says the sales manager. “But if you work with salespeople and encourage them to analyze their accounts, they’ll come up with a number that is consistently higher than what you would have set yourself. It’s really a shocking phenomenon.” So shocking that this manager often has to encourage his people to adjust their optimism and set slightly more realistic goals.

The secret sauce in the goal-setting formula is accountability. If salespeople feel like they helped shape the overall plan, they have a personal stake in the outcome. “By including your salespeople, you give them added motivation to succeed,” says Deceuster. “But without inclusion, salespeople will figure out the best excuses in the world why they can’t achieve.”

The Numbers Game
But what happens when upper management devises a wildly unrealistic sales target and drops it down from above? What should a sales manager do? Some managers who have been in this position say it is impossible to push back against management without losing their jobs. Likewise, it is imprudent to force the number on salespeople and expect them to perform.

“You work for the company, so it’s your obligation to reach the goal, no matter how unrealistic,” says one sales manager. “But it’s also your obligation to protect your salespeople from arbitrary numbers.” This manager suggests figuring out other ways to remunerate your salespeople other than simply quota-based commissions. That might mean convincing management to offer greater incentives or a higher base salary.

We needs to deliver against a number set by the corporate office. At Reed that number is not determined in a vacuum, but rather is based on direct input and data from people in the field. “Our sales targets start with the individual salespeople doing a strategic assessment of their accounts and territories, evaluating everything from revenue flow to run rates to new areas of growth,” Sales Manager explains. “We then take that data from the street and match it up with corporate objectives.”

Once the goals are set, Sales Manager , who manages a team that sells everything from traditional print ads for magazines to banner ads for online properties, meets with his people to review those goals on a weekly and monthly basis. “There has to be a continual dialogue,” says. “If we set a goal and don’t regularly assess what is happening, we’ll never reach the target.”

One Step at a Time
One another step that connects buyers and sellers of industrial products, says it’s crucial for salespeople to establish a set of daily, weekly and monthly benchmarks that help them measure and manage their ultimate goal. For instance, if one of her salespeople has a target of $1 million, she doesn’t ask them to focus on the actual dollars, but the activities that will help them reach that mark.

We believe it’s important to identify and measure several key success indicators, such as the number of follow-up appointments in a week, the number of networking events you’ve attended, or the number of contracts you’ve renewed. It even establishes weekly and monthly contests for her salespeople based on these very metrics. “By breaking goals down into smaller, easier-to-digest targets, you can start seeing the impact immediately,”. “It can be much more effective and rewarding, rather than simply striving for year-end results that are way down the road and seem so far out of reach.”

Another effective tactic for setting and managing sales goals is to step back and evaluate what went right and what went wrong the previous year. After all, if you don’t learn from our mistakes, we are doomed to repeat them. And if you don’t learn from your successes, you can’t replicate them.

“We have our teams write out three lessons from their successes and failures that can guide them as they move into the future,” says marketing manager. On the negative side, he finds that salespeople consistently believe they do not have enough time in the day to get things done, which prevents them from reaching their ultimate goal. The trick,, is getting them to reframe negative associations in a more positive light. For instance, you can’t change the number of hours in the day, but you can always find time to do what is important by prioritizing your tasks and systematically checking items off the list one at a time.

A Team Effort
Many sales managers employ a consultative approach when helping to set goals for their staff. Marketing Manger of Neem Aerosol first asks his team members to map out where they want to be financially and how much they want to earn. He then tells them to work backwards from there. “Let’s say a salesperson wants to earn $100,000 a year, and to get that, they need sales revenue of $1 million,” he says. “Together, we’ll look closely at each of their accounts and identify areas of growth where new sales can come from.” He wants his salespeople to be aggressive, but he is also careful that they don’t set themselves up for failure. For instance, a sales target of $5 million might be overly optimistic if the sales representative in question has never surpassed $1 million in his career.

Another effective tactic is encouraging sales staff to share their goals with the entire team and other people in the organization. When goals are shared, people become more vested in the outcome and ultimate success. “We break commitments to ourselves all the time, but once we inform friends, family and colleagues of our goals, the stakes are instantly raised,” says Lori Richardson, president of Score More Sales, a sales effectiveness organization. People are less likely to back away from their goals without giving it a lot of thought and reasoning first. What’s more, by trusting others with your goals, you acquire a support group that can help you stick with it and spur you on to success.
