Sales Stages Help Improve your Sales Pipeline
Building a sales pipeline is important, but it is more important to improve its effectiveness with well-defined sales processes. Improving sales pipeline performance is necessary for revenue growth. You need to focus more on opportunities that are more likely to convert than on opportunities that have a near-zero probability.
