You might think that sales incentives and Halloween are a strange mix. But there’s a good reason to pair them.
Every sales leader knows the last few months of the year can be terribly slow. Your prospects spend time with family or plan for next year. No one has time to for sales calls, let alone contracts and negotiations. Team morale sinks.
But there is a way to counteract this phenomenon: Front-load your sales numbers at the beginning of Q4 with a little sales motivation.
Motivate your team to push hard the first half of the quarter with a few contests and spiffs. These fun sales incentives make great prizes for winners and won’t leave a dent in your wallet.
