In the dynamic world of sales, innovative strategies are the key to success. The four pillars – multichannel approach, competent staff, regional differentiation, and vertical process automation – form the foundation for a future-oriented sales strategy that responds to the needs and expectations of your customers. The goal of every organization must be to create a seamless customer experience, increase efficiency, and gain a true competitive advantage in an ever-changing market. The following approaches will help you master the challenges of the digital age and build a strong bond with your customers.


Everything in sight: The multichannel approach

Implementing a multichannel approach has become one of the most important sales strategies in recent years. The aim is to seamlessly engage customers across digital and physical touchpoints and provide them with a consistent brand experience. This strategy goes beyond traditional retail, with brands using omnichannel practices in physical stores to amplify their impact. Retailers benefit from providing consumers with a convenient and personalized experience across online, mobile, and brick-and-mortar platforms, driving satisfaction, loyalty, and improved business strategies.


From person to person: competent staff

Who is closer to the customers and their wishes than a salesperson? Unfortunately, sales staff are often seen as a cost factor that can be cut without any noticeable change in sales. The sad fact is, however, that the pay of sales staff is often below average; female sales staff usually earn less than their male colleagues. Another underestimated aspect is that human relationships and actual interaction are of the utmost importance, especially in the digitalized world. People and their needs should always be at the center. And this excellent task must be skillfully implemented in sales.


Exploiting diversity: Regional differentiation

Internationally active companies must understand that regional differences can significantly impact sales success. Those who understand cultural nuances can act in a more targeted manner on the market. Basically, it’s about the balancing act of creating a local world in a global one in which the local community feels comfortable. For example, smaller stores, a high-quality relationship, and space as marketing play a major role. The principle of “glocal” should be consistently implemented, from the furnishings to the product range to the staff. Multi-label retailers could, for example, consider pop-ups and shop-in-shop offers with regional labels.


Hand in hand: vertical process automation

Looking at the entire value chain, vertical process automation, i.e., networking with partner companies, has become indispensable. Process automation is a series of technologies that essentially pursue the following goals:

– Reduction of the workload

– Centralization of information

– Increased efficiency, productivity, and competitiveness

– Higher quality

– more transparency

– faster process handling

– better compliance with regulations

The possibilities of using technology to optimize and streamline business processes are enormous and will improve the overall satisfaction of your employees and customers.
