Strategic marketing and sales

Control loop - step 3.: Definition of targets    © Michael Richter

For assistance in Germany/Europe >> 'Country experience'

Now it is time to calculate:
At the beginning basing on empirical values of sales to such clients/target groups we now have to calculate which average sales can possibly be reached during ‘X’-years (normally within 3 – 5 years !) to the companies found.

Therefrom again we can calculate which net income could be the result.

‘Every client has to be bought!’, whether through advertisements, phone calls, INTERNET-actions, presentations, representative visits or else – i. e. at this time it can be decided which portion of the expectable net income the entrepreneur will risk (‘normal business risk’) in order to really reach these clients, reach a certain market share in ‘X’-period and what he intends to do for this target.

This calculation is furthermore important for budgeting.

An example calculation:

If within 3 – 5 years 10 % of the medium sized companies and 5 % of the larger companies (each as per step 2., Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg) can be converted into our clients and if we sell each 10 products to them, then this will be – in case the net income per product would be € 200 per product – 487 (340 + 147) x 10 x 200 = € 974.000 !!

There should be enough means available then to undertake quite some steps to reach them.
