HubSpot columnist Jeff Hoffman has shared five creative sales motivation tactics to help you increase your sales.

Hoffman says, “Here are five creative sales motivation tactics managers can use to fire up their entire team. And the best part? They won’t cost a dime.

5 Creative Sales Motivation Tactics

1. Provide coaching.

In my opinion, “coaching” and “feedback” aren’t the same thing. While feedback (good or bad) is valuable for the employee, it’s rarely motivating. Coaching, on the other hand, can be a motivational force if presented correctly.

I recommend that sales managers treat coaching like a gift. Instead of just serving it up to every employee like it’s no big deal, frame it in such a way that the employee understands its value.

For example, instead of simply saying “I’ll put some coaching time on your calendar,” ask the employee with a bit of fanfare:

“I would love to coach you in X area. You could test some different approaches on me and I can share a few insights I have”.
