For a lot of sales teams, summertime can be a real drag.
Not only does your revenue typically slow because so many prospects are on vacation, but the decreased momentum makes your office a sleepy, slow-moving place to be.
Whether you want to motivating phone calls or face-to-face meetings, contests of all shapes and sizes can give your sales team the boost they need. Reps are motivated by the competition with their peers, rewarded through the recognition of achieving a goal when they win the contest, and incentivized with a small prize.
That’s right, we said “small” prize, because not all sales incentives have to break the bank. Reps can be motivated by modest or even funny prizes for their hard work.
To get your team into high gear during these summer months, here’s a list of 20 Fourth of July-related sales incentives for contest winners that all cost less than $20.
