How do you create a sales forecast? I was looking into my crystal ball this morning to determine whether my team was going to make their sales numbers this month. Everything looks very solid! Now all I have to do is keep my fingers crossed and hope my reps hit their quota! CSO Insights reports fewer than 50% of deals close as predicted. This leaves sales managers with a challenging job. If you are constantly looking into your sales crystal ball for answers, here are a few things that can help you predict and forecast sales revenue more accurately.
What are the behaviors to look for in your sales crystal ball that help predict an accurate sales forecast?
