Seek Long-Term Opportunities

Don’t panic and accept any sale that comes your way. Instead, your proactive sales focus should target the specific audience that creates long term opportunities. Commercial sales, condo associations and one-time sales are valuable short term opportunities for those in the building industry. Concentrating on builders, subcontractors and re-sellers of your product will provide ongoing revenue streams for the future.
