Sales Management

Comprehensive & Effective Personal Consulting


Increasing your market share and maximizing profits requires a well-trained and highly motivated sales team. With so much on the line, you need to ask yourself whether or not your sales team is living up to your expectations.

If you answered “yes” to these questions, congratulations… you’re in the rare minority in wholesale distribution!

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, please keep reading…

Your sales team, which includes inside sales, outside sales, customer service and management, must function as your “front line soldiers” charged with increasing market share and maximizing profitability. It should go without saying then that you need to have as many “A List ” players on your sales team as possible.

Your sales and independent territory strategies must also be in alignment with corporate objectives. That means you must actively recruit the best, provide the necessary resources, train, coach, and mentor your sales team, and create focus, process, discipline, and accountability. 

If your sales team doesn’t meet all of these criteria, and your company hasn’t provided the support required in all phases of the sales process, Rick Johnson, founder of CEO Strategist, can help you build the right foundation to take your sales team to the next level.

As your company’s personal sales management consultant, Rick can help you get back on course to growth and profitability quickly.
