MTOTW #32: You’ve successfully launched a range of products and expanded into new markets, and you’ve decided your next step is offering custom solutions. But there are a few things you should consider up front.

  • Custom products can have a longer, more complex sales cycle compared to standard products. Before diving in, adjust the sales process accordingly, and make sure your salespeople have the skills they need to succeed.
  • Take time to reevaluate your customer personas, and identify the right customer for these custom offerings.
  • Take a fresh look at your branding. Your website, tagline, and tradeshow booth have gained you recognition for your product. Some updates might be required to reflect your new capabilities.
