----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 12:19) -----Thank you.Happy to present at tne 2nd edition of sales 2.0 in Europe. Spent ten years in Silicon Valley at the heart of innovation and excited about the developments i see since back here. I have always worked in sales and marketing roles and now as a partner of Andeta-> helping sales and marketing with the new lead management processes leveraging social and technology.
There are millions of sales jobs around the worldtoday, but a large number of those are disappearingeveryyear. As technology advances and consumer demandsincrease, the idea of a salesperson as a “talking brochure” is no longervalid. World class sales forcesunderstandthisand are making every effort toadaptandmaintaintheirpositions of leadership in the marketplace.World is changing, are you? Andifyou are howcan make sureyoumeasureprogressand monitor? Want togiveyousomeideas. First of all a model thatemphasizesalignmentnotonlywithinorganization but with customer etc, Input-output but thanalsoforkey succes factors andkpi. Short time onlydiiscusssome….SOME IDEAS----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 12:19) -----What are the topics i would like to present to you to day at the ned of a great seminar and your heads probably already spinning with a lot of ifno and inspired by many ideas disucssed here today. A Sales Balanced scorecard is not a very light topic to discuss bit dont worry I ll try to kep it foun. It s also key in making sure your salesforce is really adjusting to the new changing world of online and social and to measure progress! Discuss the fundamentals of the BSC and how it looked like in 2001 -> what has changed-> how this affects the new metrics/CSF and a little more time on the sales rep 2.0 finishcing with the social SBC exmaple. Off course this will be different for everyone
Looking back in my many years within sales and marketing i think the late nineties/early 2000 was all about measurement, improvement of processes , large focus on sales perfromance less on the organization around. Why we did a lot of researched and applied the BSC Kaplan and Norton.Strategic performance tool: to monitor results, be proactiveIt’s about links, ensures alignmentCustomer perspective: what do customers find important? Need to know the customer! Internal: which factors within the orgnaization do we need to excel in to retain and gain customersLearning and groweth: where do we need to invest to realize objectives in the others perspectivesFinancial shows traditional factors sales and profits----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 12:19) -----Let s first go a few years back.I loved the 90ths not only becse i was in my early 20s but it was also when kaplan and norton came with the Balanced Score Card model as an integrated approach to measure a companies performance. It was a time where re-enigneering of companies processes and measuring performance got alot of attention. Who is familiar with the BSC? Let me quickly show you the fundamentalsAre Your Skills Stuck in the 90's?

What I especially like about this way of measuring that it LINKS the different business initiatives and it is aligned with the company's strategy and vision…each CSF is then furtner elaborated in key performance metrics. where for each a baseline will need to be set and a goal. By measuring progress it becomes also a very hany tool to measure progress.BSCuses flags, red immediate action needed, yellow attention, green doing well and helps to understand relations why things are going well or not
Between sales persons, divistions, benchmarking or just get started! ----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 12:19) -----How does it look lie in real life_:> think about dashboards like this one Easy to compare sales reps…baseline can be set through, hisotrical knowledge, benchmarks -> companies 0 measurement culture=> need to make assumptions talk to peer companies
Wil be different for everyoneThis was already pretty advanced but still lot of empasis on visits, quality of the salesforce-> you are more probably more interested in what is different now? What has changed? ----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 12:19) -----As you can notice I really am a fan of the BSC so much that in 2001 my firm was the first one to adjust it especially for sales: SBSC-> did huge research and this is what we came up with. Quality of the sales force-> how to measure this? lost customers/ftequalitive once=> training/FTE Up to you to decide which ones most relevant. Just want to give ideas----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 13:22) -----This was early 2000->the model is still very valid-> it helps with alignment and an integrated view on performance and how different actions affect each other.Has anything changed?----- Meeting Notes (6/1/13 10:32) -----Important the interrelation between targets. For example in sales we tend to overfocuse on the skills
What Has Changed? Nothingchanged we weresocialalready….MANYOF US KNOW WE NEED TO ADJUST TO BE READY Let’s start with the customer’sperspective----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 13:22) -----Off course we all know social is unstoppable-> like it was with cell phones emails-> after consumers-first of innovation-> followed by bto c now also BtoB
PROCESS LINKEDIN BEST FOR LEADS, Blogging leads to 67 % more leads per months!! ----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 13:27) -----So how social is B2B? Very social see these latest stats from Inside View-> 90 % uses FB =? LINKEDIN generates most leads->----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 13:39) -----Are you taking advantage of this?

First contact with IRS whichresulted in a mega milllion deal through a blog.Deloitte Netherlands 500 K 18 leads-9 contracts----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 13:39) -----Many are not. Aberdeen reports that in 2012 only 11 %.--time to get organized and really come with an integrated approach-> companies that have done this very well are Cap Gemini-> IRS But also Deloitte Netherlands report 500 K additional revenues 20 new leads and 9 deals just last year.
----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 13:39) -----What else has changed from the customer perspective?Neil Rackham,so many more sources-> different ways a customer can researhc, find out-> because of online, social we can definitely say the customer is in control

In order to so-> we need to align. Need to fix the broken process. We see lots of effort /money into demand generation. Leads directly handed to sales. But what we see is that prospects not always are ready to buy and through online get in contact quite early-> need to engage and nurture and make sure consistent message. Broken process some facts----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 17:12) -----Alignment more than ever a CSF nurturing is very important to get more control on the online part of the buying process and to not kill the sales but also to keep in touch till the prospect is ready
90% of CEO’ssaidthey NEVER respondtocoldemails or calls.

----- Meeting Notes (5/31/13 21:37) -----Talked a lot about the changing role-> marketing and sales. Before zooming into sales, the following quote from Nick Bell is i think a great summary what the new marketing role involves-> about accountability ! creativity but also tech to make it all happen-> do we look at sales then I think the most important area of grow is by leveraging social media----- Meeting Notes (6/1/13 10:47) -----Summary creative, analytic, tech savvy and off course social-> you see this basically in the changing sales role too-> sales needs to be a team player-> will need to embrace social selling-> to become more effective-> knowing what is going on ,to be there at the right time at the right moment with the right person- helps with succes. More efficient if you sometimes skype, FB instead of jumping in that car
My voice over was goingtobemany sales experts see the need of a new sales roleemerging.
