Sales metrics lie; they don’t tell the whole picture. To make sales metrics more useful—and honest—add qualitative information, ignore single metrics, and measure outputs instead of inputs.

Hi Anthony,

I love this sentence in your post, "There shouldn’t ever be a sales call made without an intended outcome that moves you towards a deal." So many sales managers get hung up on the wrong metric and force people to make calls. As a result, sales people are meeting for the sake of meeting even when they know there's no point to it. That, in turn, feeds the fire against salesmen in general.

Nice post.

Sarah
