SBI Sales and Marketing Video Podcast Episode summary:

Ready to organize? It's spring cleaning here in SBI's sales and marketing podcast, so today we're joined by B2B sales assistant Tony Capucille of Heartland Payment Systems to analyze the pros and cons of the seven dominant models of sales organization. so you can start planning your organizational structure and take the path to reach your numbers.

There is not a single model for everyone in regards to the organizational structure, so in addition to evaluating the pros and cons of each organizational development model, we will also see what types of organizations are best designed for. For example, you may have some clear high priority accounts. If so, perhaps the stratification model, where you segment your accounts by winning and assigning talents and resources accordingly, is in your best interest. Perhaps the organizational structure of hunters / farmers will serve you better, where you have a team dedicated to new businesses and another dedicated to the growth of your current accounts. Are you a company that focuses on B2B sales in a specific geographic area? The geographic model could be your ticket to success. Then there are always the benefits of adopting a hybrid approach, such as the organizational model, which compensates for the strengths of one organizational structure with the strengths of another. Most likely, you will probably experiment with some of these organizational development models before finding the one that best suits you, so what better place to start than here? Learn from the experience of one of the best B2B sales leaders that exists to begin to find the organizational structure that allows you to reach the numbers you need to reach.

    7 sales organization models for your organizational structure

    1. Nicely done, insightful, provocative and pragmatic. Something every Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Executive Officer should consider.

    2. These are hugely helpful. Our challenge is to interpolate the subject and scale it to a $3 million / 4 man sales team. We are doing it, but it would be interesting to have some interviews with sub $100 million per year execs.

    3. Great information that highlights on engaging the market. I think you need to use all models depending on your product or service.

    4. very informative and model concepts well presented for understanding what to expect. Thanks

    5. Love it but .. please .. drop the ads .. !
      Would be interested in understanding how each model matches to different industries/product types (e.g. how geographic sales model works in commodity vs solutions markets, in large vs small sales, fast vs slow moving industries, .. )
      Also .. will wait for an "episode" focused on "indirect" sales force (i.e. managing channel partners)
