    in Business

    You work hard in your business. You wear so many hats to keep things going, to keep customers happy, employees on target and engaged and manage all the back end .. not to mention your family and personal needs. Often entrepreneurs find themselves so deep IN their business that they don’t have time to work ON their business. You need to be able to see over the wall to the next level and target the next level. Part of that strategic thinking is around financial planning, maximizing tax situations for today and planning for your future. It is important to stop and take this long term view for a few moments to make some important choices today.

    Pre-Call Planning is the Key to Sales Call Success

    in Business

    Lively discussion with Lisa Magnuson:  Pre-Call Planning your Single Source for Prospecting Success


    When was the last time your team closed a seven-figure deal?  Despite the best sales talent, many high potential, big contracts either get whittled down, end up stalled, or are lost completely.  Large, strategic accounts are complex and require a very different approach to identify, develop and win.  Can you afford to chase smaller opportunities at the expense of bigger deals that can exponentially change your company’s growth curve?


    Top Line Sales has a proven track record of guiding account teams to land larger deals.  We’re proud to have enabled our clients to land over $100 million in new contracts.  We are not simply advice-givers - we work side-by side with your account executives, running deal war rooms, applying just-in-time expertise, tools and live deal coaching where it counts: in the field.


    Example: Top Line Sales helped one of their TOP Line Account War Room clients land a contract for a new customer worth 20m – their second largest deal in the country for that solution set
