You don’t have to have a sales team if you have brand permission strategies in place.
What is Brand permission? Let me answer it by asking you the question – why do big brands like Apple, Microsoft, always advertise, even though the average consumer knows about them? The two essential things they try to achieve is maintaining brand recognition and educate the consumer – you on the value of their product.
So for example when your kids are going back to school, you make a natural buying decision base on a brand you know and feel you can trust.
So Brand permission is creating brand awareness and value of your product or service before you ask for a sale.
If your business depends on sales, it makes it easier for your sales team to achieve sales goals if the consumer has already given your team permission to sell to them.
