Sales managers wear a lot of different hats and are responsible for a variety of goals. 

In this post, we’ll discuss some Lucidchart templates you can use to make your life easier as you set up processes and track your sales team’s performance. 

Templates for setting up processes

Sales funnel

This sales funnel template is modeled after an AIDA (awareness, interest, decision, action) approach. Each stage of the funnel represents potential customers who will buy your product. Each stage represents fewer potential customers because those who are unqualified or uninterested will drop off along the journey until you close the deal at the bottom of the funnel.

Marketing and sales service level agreement

A marketing and sales service level agreement is a kind of contract between the two departments that outlines processes, actions, timeline, goals, and objectives that each are responsible for to ensure growth for the business. A service level agreement helps your teams to communicate and collaborate more effectively.

7-step sales process

The sales process includes these seven steps: prospecting, preparation, approach, presentation, handling objections, closing, and follow-up. The first three steps include research to determine what your prospects want or need. The fourth step involves presenting how your product can meet those needs. The remaining steps are used to address customer concerns, close the deal, and work to retain customer loyalty. 

Use this 7-step sales process template as a guide for developing a process that works for you and your team.

Sales territory map and leaderboard

This sales territory map and leaderboard lets you track the progress of sales teams in various territories throughout the world. This can give you insight into the strengths and weaknesses in each territory. An analysis of these strengths and weaknesses can help you to compare and contrast trends and patterns that work well in one market so you can determine why they don’t work in other markets. Your analysis can also help you to identify where the leaders in each sales territory might need some additional training.

Like the sales leaderboard, a sales territory map and leaderboard can be good for motivating your sales teams as they measure their success against other territories.
