02. Are you using SMART Goals? Test yourself with the 3 A’s
Sales goals are set objectives for your sales team. These goals center on a specific sales KPI (key performance indicators) and are often tied to overarching business goals. Typical sales /deals goal examples include increasing revenue 25% year over year or boosting customer retention 10% in 2021.
