Working in sales can be a very rewarding job; both financially, but also for job satisfaction. However, it can also be very hard work with long hours and it can also be very emotionally draining – hence why staying motivated to get us through the days and weeks is crucial for sales success.
As sales professionals, it’s important to stay motivated and focused on our goals. It can be difficult to stay motivated when working in a sales job, especially if you’re feeling overwhelmed or stuck in a rut.
To help you stay motivated, we’ve put together some top tips to help you stay focused on the task at hand.
- Set realistic and achievable goals.
It’s important to set goals that are achievable and that you can easily measure your progress against. This will help you stay motivated by providing you with a sense of accomplishment when you reach your goals. Of course, it is highly likely you will have goals set out to you through your sales manager or your boss, but be sure to break these down into your own personal goals that you can look to achieve on a daily basis; these can be amount of dials you make, the amount of messages you send on LinkedIn, or the amount of daily sales you make.
- Celebrate your successes.
Don’t forget to celebrate the successes you have achieved! Taking the time to acknowledge and reward yourself for your efforts will give you the motivation and energy to keep going. And share these successes with those around you too!
- Connect with other sales professionals.
Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals who understand your challenges and who can provide you with support and advice can be invaluable. These can be people in your company, or outside of your company.
- Stay organised.
Keeping your workspace organized and having a plan for the day ahead will help you stay focused and motivated. A good CRM system such as this one HERE will help you to stay focused and organised, and will ensure you are using your time effectively.
- Take regular breaks.
It’s important to take regular breaks throughout the day to recharge and refocus. Whether it’s a quick walk outside or a few minutes of meditation, taking regular breaks will help keep you motivated and energised.
- Reward yourself.
Don’t forget to reward yourself for achieving milestones. Treating yourself to a nice dinner or a massage can help keep you motivated and focused. Always celebrate the small wins too!
