Prime Account Development Program
The Prime Account Development Program is like a sales prospecting campaign on steroids. It is primarily focused on developing highly-targeted or strategic sales accounts for sales reps to pursue and close. The Prime Account Program was specifically designed to:
- Obtain entry to and perform due diligence on critical accounts that are difficult to penetrate.
- Quickly flush out bad-fits and other dead-end opportunities that waste sales reps precious time.
- dentify multiple sales opportunities within large, diversified, and distributed organizations (when clients offering is a departmental or program-based solution).
- Obtain more indepth & pertinent information from key accounts relative to their needs, purchase situation, and key influencers (organizational mapping) to fully empower your sales force.
- Further develop key accounts (facilitating their buying process & shortening your sales-cycle) prior to Sales hand-off (fully leverage your selling resources).
- Pursue key accounts that you are concerned about loosing due to insufficient sales coverage.
- Evaluate the sales potential and value of strategic accounts to help prioritize sales activity and develop a near-term sales attack plan.
