How To Plan For Your Sales Week

Updated: Jun 27

You can’t go shopping without knowing what you want. So a plan is an excellent place to start to avoid looking clueless at the mall.

Everything starts with a plan. The plan affects all aspects of a business.

Planning for your sales week is inclined towards a sales strategy. This acts as a guideline towards meeting your short-term goals, i.e., weekly or daily goals. The success of the short-term goals determines the success of long-term goals.

Planning your sales week as an individual or a team is vital because it is a motivational tool and keeps up your working energy levels and determination. In addition, it helps you achieve your target success/goals.

Ways to plan your sales week

1. Ready your calls

2. Have time for different tasks

3. Nurture contacts

4. Face-to-face interactions

5. Prospecting

6. Follow-ups

7. Open to learning

All plans have value at the beginning. However, this value can only be realized if the plan is executed to the letter. Planning your sales week gives you a feeling of what you must have accomplished at the end of the week or within seven days.

Using results from an older plan as the cornerstone on which the new plan can be set is advisable. First, review the old plan, know what to change, and implement that in the new one. Then, the moment you see what you need to get done in the new week, you already have your sales plan for the week ready, and thus, you can mark your days of the week and what you have to do on those days specifically.

For success to happen, you must follow your week’s sales plan and be consistent. You can then tell one of your closest people to help you monitor your consistency in following your weekly plan, which will help you keep motivated towards executing your tasks just like your week’s sales plan flows.
