Leveraging the power of AI in sales can help with elements like customer preferences, product insights and reflections on the effectiveness of a sales call that leaders cannot micromanage at all times!

Imagine you get hired to a role at an aeronautics lab and you are told to build an airplane bottom up in just a month. Sure, you love airplanes, you love the aerospace industry, but is pure passion enough to sustain you when jostled into the actual situation?

Without mentorship, practice and instructions, you simply won’t have enough expertise to tackle that daunting challenge.

Productivity is critical for any business, from building airplanes to selling a product. If you are reading this article, I’ll safely assume you are not an aerospace engineer. However, as a salesperson, the same principles apply to reduce ramp time — that is the time it takes to get salespeople up to speed.

Sales playbook and coaching moments library are critical components for faster onboarding and ramping. Not only onboarding new sales reps, it also helps keep all the relevant coaching moments at one place so you can always refer to them at any point in time.

So, what are the key components of a sales playbook?

  1. Target customer profiles: As a growing company, you want to make sure that you are targeting the right prospects. Target customer profiles are needed for a good sales playbook to effectively tailor your content and messaging, which increases engagement with the intended audience
  2. Stages of the sales process: this provides a structured framework that guides your sales people through the customer journey, ensuring consistency, efficiency, and improved outcomes. Whether it’s a discovery stage discussion or a product demonstration, your sales team should be able to leverage the content in a structured manner
  3. How to handle customer objections: this is crucial in a sales book because objections provide valuable insights on common barriers to purchase and equip your new reps with effective sales strategies to address those objections, leading to increased sales success
  4. Sales Methodologies: this provides proven techniques and best practices to effectively navigate the sales process and close deals. This may include pricing negotiation, competitor’s vs your product’s positioning or even customer preferences
  5. Key performance indicators (KPIs): KPI’s delineate the overall goals of a sales team and having metrics set forward (especially quantitative) provides team spirit and motivation. Sometimes battle cards or simple cue cards help reinforce certain learnings
  6. Strategic Objectives: Understanding the organization’s strategic goals as a whole in terms of the company’s vision, values and targets are important for any employee joining in to foster a sense of belonging

Leveraging the power of AI in sales can help with elements like customer preferences, product insights and reflections on the effectiveness of a sales call that leaders cannot micromanage at all times.
