In sales, we used to say Activity = Productivity. But in modern
sales, we should say Customer Activity = Sales Productivity.”
— Joël LeBon, Marketing and Sales Professor, The Johns Hopkins University

How to Achieve
Maximum Sales Efficiency
Research shows that salespeople
spend less than 40% of their time
selling, so being efficient is crucial.
The single biggest productivity drain is spending time chasing
unwinnable opportunities because they are unqualified.”
— Julie Thomas, President-CEO, ValueSelling Associates
“
Monday
A salesperson’s most valuable resource isn’t time…it’s attention.
So it’s critical that salespeople learn how to focus that attention.
It starts with putting time in your schedule at the end of the week
to plan out the next one.”
— David J.P. Fisher, President, RockStar Consulting
“
To be more productive … set an intention for each day: I will book
five appointments today or I will close at least one new client.”
— Ted Prodromou, Author, “Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for Business”
“
Here are 13 actionable tips from sales experts
to help you maximize your productivity.
Extremely productive sellers say no to unnecessary meetings,
co-worker interruptions, and accepting tasks that aren’t theirs.”
— Mike Schultz, President, RAIN Group
“
“Look at those around you who get things done and learn what
they do, because success leaves clues.”
— Lori Richardson, CEO, Score More Sales/President, Women Sales Pros
Time is the most precious resource for every salesperson, and
that’s why they need absolute clarity about their Ideal Customer
Profile (ICP).”
— Tony Hughes, Managing Director, RSVPselling
“
This answer is simple: spend more time on the things that work,
less time on the things that don’t work.”
— Robert Knop, CEO, Assist You Today
“
The No. 1 thing I see that separates high-performing sales
professionals is their ability to own their time and their calendar…
Focus on those things that provide you with the highest ROI first.”
— Jeff Davis, Founder and Revenue Strategist, JD2 Consulting Group
“
With today’s distractions—I am married to my calendar. If it’s not
in there, it’s not happening.”
— Viveka von Rosen, Chief Visibility Officer, Vengreso
“
Prioritize your time working with or prospecting within your
Ideal Customer Profile to make both you and your customers
more successful.”
— Kelly Marberry, Sales Manager, LinkedIn
“
1
According to most sellers I talk to, email is a big distraction getting
between them and their clients. Turn off the sound and visual alert
that appears on your computer screen signaling you have a new
email, and check your email at scheduled times throughout the day.”
— Tracey Wik, President, GrowthPlay
“
1
Instead [of cold calling], leverage your networks to look for warm
introduction paths and leverage personalized insights to increase
outreach response rates and build meaningful relationships.”
— Allison McGreevy, Sales Manager, LinkedIn
