How transient are your salespeople?

… dismissals, resignations, interviews, hires, fires.

Selling is one of North America’s most transient professions … and often the vocation of last resort. Each time a company loses a salesperson it loses the equity, relationships and trust-associations that salesperson has cultivated.

Sales staff turnovers can damage morale internally and your company’s reputation externally … not to mention the costs of hiring and re-educating.

Tangent Strategies teaches you to locate and retain the most talented, loyal salespeople … long-term. One of the most powerful ways to improve your company’s bottom line.

One the most virulent company profit-killers is staff turn-over. And the position most frequently turned-over is ‘salesperson’. Tangent teaches you how to recognize and hire the most talented salespeople. Tangent teaches you how to keep them as long-term employees.

Another selling profit-killer is the pursuit of prospects who are unqualified to be your customers. They burn precious time, increase your per sale costs and decrease your per sale profits. Tangent teaches you to spend your precious, non-renewable time with the most qualified, ready-to-buy prospects. Your costs drop and your profits soar.

Tangent Strategies can help you explore your profit and loss realities.
