A tactical incentive can kick off your year or reinvigorate your second half. One of the most successful incentive structures, GoalQuest®, has a unique way to motivate people to achieve above their normal sales rate.

Hear from some real sales achievers who participated in a GoalQuest incentive:

No matter what incentive structure you use, here are a few tips to make it a smashing success:

Shout it out

  • Don’t surprise your sales team – give participants a clear set of program rules at launch and continue to provide progress updates throughout the incentive.

Reduce the clutter

  • Make sure other initiatives, including other incentive programs, don’t distract or confuse your audience. It’s difficult to achieve anything if you’re lacking a clear focus.

Dream about the big time

  • It’s been said that any plan is better than no plan and this advice holds true in helping sales people get off to a fast start. Help them to think about how they’re going to achieve their goals as part of the program.
