Common Mistakes Business Owners Make When Building an In-House Sales Team

Hiring, training, and maintaining an in-house sales team is far from easy. Below you will find some of the most common mistakes business owners make when building their own inside sales force:

Assuming building an effective sales team is easy: Quality sales people are tough to come by. Great sales people are even more rare. Unless you can find and employee the best sales people around, your efforts will be for naught.

Hiring a sales manager: It is extremely important that you find a sales manager with the right experience and knowledge to make your sales efforts a success. Without a great sales manager, your sales campaign will not be successful.

You are never out of Beta-testing: Sales is always evolving, so you are never out of testing. You should constantly be striving to better your efforts, finding the quickest and most-efficient ways to sell.

Form realistic goals: Do not set your team up for failure. Start small and work your way up from there.
