The State of Our Industry
How are you preparing your business for the likely recession? Many industry companies thrived during the height of the pandemic, but are facing increasing challenges today, including:

- Rising inflation which is projected to continue for the foreseeable future
- Climbing interest rates, coupled by the Federal Reserve tightening their monetary policy
- Reduced industry growth in 2023-24, compounded by an aging workforce and material shortages.

The old adage "adapt or die" has never been more relevant, and this session will set the stage for the timely content addressed during the Peak Profit Summit.
2:00 - 2:45 PM

PANEL: Drilling Down on Your Efficiency Metrics
If you are not concentrating on being more efficient in your sales and marketing efforts, and maintaining your "margins", your net profit will suffer. Our surveys on industry companies show that:

- 79% have trouble following up on unsold leads
- 43% have marketing expenses equaling 12 to 20% of their total revenue
- 48% of buyers receive misleading information about industry companies, their products and services, and/or their prices
- 43% of sales personnel do not fully understand the products/services they sell

In this powerful panel session, you will learn defined strategies for tying together your sales and marketing efforts, to ultimately become more efficient and profitable.

The Need for Systematic Sales Training
For years, we have shared that the role of a Sales Manager/Trainer, or similar position is NOT to manage “sales’, but to manage people. With this in mind, how are you training your sales personnel for the changes which have already occurred in the economy, and those on the horizon?

To thrive in 2023 and beyond, you need to have a systematic process for onboarding, training, and re-training your sales personnel that reinforces accountability, with the understanding that being accountable will lead to improved earnings and customer satisfaction.

PANEL: Selling Financing in a Changing Economy
Is your business equipped to educate and teach your customers and prospects regarding the benefits of financing and purchasing at your “guaranteed now” price? How do you utilize financing to maximize your leads and conversion rate? Are you consistently training your sales force on a scripted approach to presenting your financing offer?

If you answered "No" to any of these questions, you are likely leaving a significant amount of income at the table.

During this panel session you will hear from experts who will provide you with best practices to sell more - - and more profitable contracts using financing.

The Modern Sales Compensation Plan
Does your sales compensation plan provide sufficient motivation and differentiation from similar positions? Are you valuing new hires the same as you value your leads?

In today’s environment, there are monetary and non-monetary factors which determine the motivation of successful salespeople including:

• A reasonable base (salary, guarantee, advance)
• A sales quota which equals the proper ratio to the amount paid as salary
• Commission or bonuses for volume in excess of their quota
• Contingent bonuses based on higher volume, productivity, profitability (paid annually, bi-annually, or quarterly) as a means of retention
• Periodic incentives, such as bonuses, awards, vacations, or similar.

This session will present proven, value-added compensation plans that value new hires that will give you an advantage over your competition.
