The number of really talented salespeople who are looking for work is unprecedented. Virtually every business has been disrupted by the economic shutdown. Nearly everywhere in the world. Unemployment has surged from record lows to record highs in the course of 90 days. And, unfortunately, a lot of businesses will not survive.
As the economy slowly reopens, it would be foolish to expect that everything will be normal quickly. It won’t be. And the most important element of business that has to recover quickly is sales. Sales pipelines will not fill up quickly or automatically. Businesses need to get aggressive and smart with their sales function.
