Authenticity and Transparency in Sales
Authenticity and transparency: These two are of the most popular marketing buzzwords these days. When it comes to measuring a brand’s marketing success, authenticity is undoubtedly the most important criterion. Even though authenticity is critical for short-term and long-term success, businesses might need help to grasp it.
Transparency is exhibited when you are open and honest about your company. When a company is transparent, they are prepared to reveal crucial information about its operations. Customers of transparent firms never have to question if they are being misled or deceived about certain parts of the business.
Build Trust Through Transparency
A new sales leader must establish “trust through transparency, then utilize that same transparency to set correct expectations,” as Caponi clearly believes. He proposes an understandable and relevant “Five F’s framework” that is alliterative and leaves nothing to chance. Those are:
“Accomplishing a revenue target is the result, not the job,” continued Caponi. If you’re doing it incorrectly, the motivation of your staff is merely “coin-operated.” You’ll stop seeking and begin to develop. Finally, you’ll be able to notice the holes before they develop.
