Strong sales funnel management enables sales managers to implement more powerful sales analytics, produce more accurate forecasts and put you in control of your sales results.

About Sales Funnel Management

A sales funnel visually represents how a sale proceeds in a linear fashion from customer awareness to customer action. Therefore, managing your sales funnel is crucial to your business. A well managed sales funnel will get all of your sales efforts well organized.

Sales Funnel Management

Here are some important elements of sales funnel management:

  • Sales Funnel Conversions
  • Time spent in each stage
  • The shape of the funnel

Four Biggest Mistakes in Managing Your Sales Funnel

To manage a sales funnel effectively, we should avoid some mistakes in managing a sales funnel.

  • No balance between lead generation
  • Focusing on CRM technology instead of your sales process
  • Not getting proper sales training
  • Not measuring each stage of your sales funnel

Effective Sales Funnel Management

Following are some tips for managing a sales funnel effectively.

One: remove unnecessary objects

It is important to ensure that no leads move horizontally within the funnel. Instead, they should be able to move sideways.

Two: target qualified leads

Recognize qualified and unqualified leads and have all qualified leads in a pool to target so that the sales team will end up spending time, effort and resources into targeting unpromising prospects.

Three: use a CRM to manage your sales funnel

CRM technology can be a valuable tool to help you keep track of the specific information associated with each potential customer.
