Targeting Communicating Selling Information gathering Allocating Figure 21.1: Designing a Sales Force 21-3 Copyright 2003 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Table 21.1: Sales-Force Structures Territorial: Each sales representative is assigned an exclusive territory. This sales structure results in a clear definition of responsibilities. It increases the reps incentive to cultivate local business and personal ties. Travel expenses are relatively low because each rep travels within a small area. Territory size: Territories can be designed to provide equal sales potential

or equal workload. Territories of equal potential provide each rep with the same income opportunities and provide the company with a means to evaluate performance. Territories can also be designed to equalize the sales workload so that each rep can cover the territory adequately. Territory shape: Territories are formed by combining smaller units, such as counties or states, until they add up to a territory of a given potential or workload. Companies can use computer programs to design territories that optimize such criteria as compactness, equalization of workload or sales potential, and minimal travel time. See text for complete table 21-4 Copyright 2003 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Designing the Sales Force Sales-Force Size Workload approach: Customers are grouped into size classes Desirable call frequencies are established for each class

The number of accounts in each size class is multiplied by the corresponding call frequency The average number of calls a sales representative can make per year is determined The total number of sales representatives needed is determined 21-5 Copyright 2003 Prentice-Hall, Inc.
