Buy sales skills

- as and when you need them

If you  need help with sales management but cannot afford to recruit an experienced sales manager on full time basis, Answerbank Consulting will provide you with pay-as-you-go Sales Support Services that will keep your cost-of-sales within bounds.

Less is more for you!

Labor is a strange thing. Usually, when you buy something in bulk, you can negotiate discounts. The reverse happens with labor (including salespersons). The more people you employ, the more collective bargaining power they acquire, which leads to higher wages and perks. Furthermore, there are no real economies of scale for management. The more people on your payroll, the more complex and costly it becomes to manage them. Today, small payrolls make sense. 

 

Answerbank Consulting will help you in this regard through our Outsourced Sales Management Services which enable you to directly employ as few people as possible, while at the same time protecting strategic skills. Our goal is to help you reach your goals regarding revenue and cost of sales.  We will help you grow your customer base and profitability, while you focus on your production and other mission-critical areas.This will save you wages, office space, idle time and management time. Less is definitely more for you.
