If you were handed 50 new target accounts how would you start?

1 Answer

I would segment the customers into territorial zones in terms of proximity. I would then rank the prospects in terms of size and potential. I would then begin to aggressively seek out business from the group zones on a daily basis. I would seek the appointment to be a two pronged initiative, in which I seek to introduce myself and find out the current status of the business. I would then conduct this for 8-10 customers per day until the fifty calls are completed, and follow up calls have been scheduled. This is assuming that these 50 calls are my only account base. If I am to fit these in on top of active customers, I would then fit them in my normal call list and seek to target 2-3 per day starting with the largest potential customers in a given area which I am already scheduled to be in for that day.
