Sales Report is generated on monthly as well as yearly basis depending upon the nature of the product for which teams are being called in the team meeting and asked to present crux of sales in Annual General Meeting as well. Sales reports play a vital role in deciding whether to continue with the product for the long run or not. There are following key factors which are considered while generating a sales report;
- Know Your Audience:
As a sales manager and representer there might be a bundle of information which is relevant to you in order to run an efficient sales curve but we must know what to present in front of the audience and it should make sense even for a layman to understand where do we stand in order to watch our sales of a certain product in the market.
- A decision of Time Period:
We must know what deadlines are we quoting in our reports and are they realistic, if yes then we put them in writing in front of the whole audience. Never try to put unrealistic or imaginary timelines of any kind of sales of any product. Once we have quoted a time period of specific set target, we cannot negate in our next meeting otherwise it would be considered as lower performance indication.
- Select the Accurate Visuals:
Always keep in mind to look for the most précised and simple diagrams in order to mention the sales curve for any product. Complex and non-explanatory graphs put the sales team as well as the representer in trouble in front of top management and other staff.
- Pick the Right Info to Share:
While maintaining a sales report always keep in mind to collect and present the rightful information to share with the audience and make sure all the relevant information has been discussed e.g. goals, set targets, target market, breakeven points, accurate analysis report, SWOT, 4Cs, key challenges, and all required information has been plotted in order to avoid leaving the audience in ambiguous situation.
