Here are a few facts to cause deep concerns (Data from CSO Insights):
(For a related post, check out Why Sales Needs Content Marketing and Marketing Automation.)
- Over 9 out 10 companies (95%) raised sales quotas in 2011. They will undoubtedly go up again in 2012. Quota increases are accelerating too.
- Out of 10 salespeople, only 6 made quota in 2010. With higher quotas, fewer than 6 will make quota next year – unless something changes.
- The economy is a disaster and it looks like it will stay that way for some time. It won’t help you make quota or find a new job. Not only are prospective customers not buying, but salespeople (and sales executives) who lose their jobs are unlikely to be re-hired soon.
The conclusion is clear:
If you want to make quota in 2012, you MUST implement a best-practices demand generation program today.
