“Keep your eyes on the prize.” “Aim for the moon, if you miss you may hit the stars.” “The goal should be out of reach but not out of sight.” The list goes on…
The motivational quotes are great for getting yourself out of bed on Mondays. But when it comes to sales, you need targets that are measurable. Simply put, you need to know where you’re going and when you want to get there.
Targets, of course, differ from company to company, from department to department. Be it the amount of closed deals, converted leads, increased website traffic or Instagram likes of your adorable puppy mascot, targets is what keeps your company growing and your sales rocketing.
And what better way to ensure that you hit your (ambitious but attainable) targets than to have them in front of your eyes?
