How to Create an Effective Sales Strategy Presentation

| February 13, 2018 | Quark Blog Team


A sales strategy presentation is a critical component of your company’s sales process. Sales strategy presentations are often used in client-facing scenarios for laying out your proposal and presenting the roadmap you’ll follow to produce results. Client-facing sales strategy presentations should always be customized to the prospect while including key elements for building your case and closing the deal.

Strategy presentations may also be sales representative-facing, such as for kicking off your company’s sales strategy for the quarter or the year. Or, if your company is undergoing a major transformation that includes a totally revamped approach to sales, a sales strategy presentation is vital for change management. Sales strategy presentations for these audiences are focused on company-wide goals, initiatives, and processes, although they often include the same key elements as client-facing presentations.

Building an effective sales strategy presentation is much more than simply typing up a few bullet points and talking your way through a slide deck. While PowerPoint is often utilized for sales strategy presentations – and are a useful tool for presenting your vision – the steps you take to create a compelling presentation can make or break closing deals or gaining employee and key stakeholder buy-in.

So what’s the secret? Like everything in sales (and management, for that matter), there’s no one-size-fits-all, but there are some important best practices. Following them means you’ll deliver a compelling presentation that inspires your audience.
