Create a Sales Quotation Process

A ‘Sales Quotation’ or business sale quote is a formal business document. It allows a potential buyer/customer to view the cost involved in purchasing a specific service or product. Actually, it is generally used by suppliers or resellers to initiate a business transaction cycle. Moreover, a professional ‘Sales Quotation’ contains an itemized list of products and services. Also, it states the price per item, terms of sale, and acceptable payment methods. So, before making a purchase, a sales quote is furnished at the request of a prospective buyer who is interested in knowing the cost of a certain product/service, or both. Indeed, learning how to Create Sales Quotation is ideal.

A ‘Sales Quotation’ is a formal document. However, it is not a legally binding contract. Instead, it is a document to establish a mutual understanding between two business entities. Doing that, once the quote is accepted/agreed upon, the Seller and the Customer commits to making a transaction at the stated prices and conditions.

Going forward, Follow-up is an integral and important part of the sales process. Moreover, not following through results is a missed opportunity for conversion. Actually, Follow-up is one of the significant factors in a sales process that helps convert a quote into an actual sale. A follow-up activity is about demonstrating your interest and seriousness to your buyers regarding the intended transaction.

Once you have shared the ‘Sales Quotation’, the team should follow up within 2-3 working days to inquire regarding feedback, intentions, or concerns. It is a good method to stay on their radar and increase your chance of winning the deal.
