  2. 2. High Performance<br />It is difficult to build and maintain a high performing inside sales team. Salespeople must know their product, understand needs based selling and have a desire to achieve. <br />There are several key characteristics that are critical to forming that successful sales team.<br />
  3. 3. High Performance<br />It is critical that team members are constantly practicing their craft. <br />Role Play<br />Make simulations of day-to-day interactions with customers<br />
  4. 4. High Performance<br />Inside sales professionals must have the ability to uncover customer needs and frustrations associated with the particular products and services being sold. <br />Ask open-ended questions<br />Ex. Why, what, how<br />You must appeal to the customer’s needs<br />
