Sales Budget

A sales budget is a valuable tool that gives a direction to a company with regard to its targeted
sales. It helps to improve the proIitability oI a company. The company makes a Iinancial plan
with regard to the amount oI goods and services that it plans to sell in a year and the price at
which the goods and services are to be sold. This plan is its sales budget.

O The administrative expense budget, also called the sales, general and administrative
expense budget (SG&A) is vital Ior measuring the success oI any company. The more
support a company provides Ior marketing, compensating the sales Iorce, Iinance,
accounting, legal and similar Iunctions, the more prepared it is to make the best decisions
about company operations. In order to sell the SG&A budget to top management, you
need to illustrate the connection between administrative Iunctions and sales.

Sales Plan
A sales plan contains the objectives of the sales process, the responsibilities and incentives of those
involved in the sales process, and the resources that will be available or used for the sales process. The
sales plan usually includes objectives (sales targets), assigned sales representatives, what products they
are authorized to sell, list of sales roles, responsibilities, and territories.
This diagram shows how a sales process can be managed. !n this example, the sales process is divided
key steps that can be defined and managed. The prospecting step is used to identify new customers or
expanded needs for existing customers. The qualification step is used to determine how many of the
prospects are qualified (real candidates) for the product or service. The interest assessment step is used
to determine how motivated the prospect is to take action to satisfy their need for the product or
service. The fact·finding stage is used to determine who are the decision makers and what steps are
necessary to complete the sale. The close involves the consolidation of the previous steps (coordination
of motivated decision makers) so purchases can result. The progress between each step can be tracked
and optimized. !ncluded in the chart is an example activity time sheet showing that step may require
different levels of time commitment and that the allocation of resources (time for each salesperson) is
usually distributed along each step.
