There are several hidden revenue opportunities – also known as revenue moments – that farmers in a sales organization can pursue if they know where to find and exploit them.
Failure to recognize and replicate your best customers will cost you dearly, so come along for the ride today and let's get down to the business of identifying who these people are, what makes them tick and how you matter.
Today we are going to be talking about how to build stronger relationships with your customers and identify the key indicators that allow you to increase share of wallet with your best customers.
For consumers, there's no shortage of choices, but there's a limitation of money. People pick and choose brands they rely on, and will allocate portions of their budget to companies they trust. This metric is called, "share of wallet," and it helps brands determine how popular they are amongst their competitors.
By the end of the show you will understand
- What share of wallet is
- How to calculate yours
- Strategies you can put in place to increase it
It is easy to get distracted by all the noise in the business world at large but jump day is your chance to settle in and work on your business in ways that allow you to make the most of your opportunities today, tomorrow and forever.
Today we are going to turn to a more transactional focus. With the long-term effects to the economy unknown, many consumers are feeling the financial impact, while others are looking for opportunities, resulting in a transformational shift in spending.
Some businesses are experiencing decreased or paused marketing budgets, and you may be concerned about making the right decisions in your efforts to grow the share of wallet, in this day and age I prefer the term share of requirements to share of wallet.
The purpose of today's show is to understand the source of market share in terms of breadth and depth of consumer franchise, as well as the extent of relative category usage (heavy users/larger customers versus light users/smaller customers).

The steps you take here will pay dividends of increasing value over time. First we need to identify what our best customers need and want.
