1. Diamond Line is a distributor of everything a florist needs to create a beautiful arrangement except the flowers. It sells to 10,000 flower and gift shops and 3,000 supermarkets nationwide. Each florist is called on four times a month, and each supermarket is called on twice a month. A sales call to a florist takes one hour, and a sales call to a supermarket takes two hours of selling time. An average salesperson spends 1,000 hours per year making sales calls. Calculate the number of salespeople Diamond Line needs to cover its account base for a year. Student Response Value Correct Answer Feedback A. 585 0% B. 879 0% C. 312 0% D. 624 100% E. 262 0% General Feedback: Text page 537-538 The common approach to determining the size of a sales force is known as the workload method. NS= (NC x CF x CL) / AST Where, NS= number of salespeople NC= number of customers CF= call frequency necessary to service a customer each year CL= call length AST= average amount of selling time available per year For the florists: (10,000 x 48 x 1) / 1000 = 480 For the supermarket: (3,000 x 24 x 2) / 1000 = 144 Therefore Diamond line needs 480 + 144 = 624 salespeople. Score: 1/1 2. Mr. Burger King is trying to evaluate his sales force by using the conversion rate. Below is data that Mr. King had developed: # Calls = 420,941 # Sales = 15,326 $ Sales Goals = $89,000

General Feedback: Text page 529 A) Traffic generation is the outcome of a direct marketing offer designed to motivate people to visit a business. Louisa has no business for people to visit, she is attempting to get hired for small jobs. B) Lead generation is the result of a direct marketing offer designed to generate interest in a product or service and a request for additional information. Louisa uses no direct marketing and is not hoping people request additional information. C) Closing is a stage in the selling process that involves obtaining a purchase commitment from the prospect. Louisa is not engaged in that stage until after she knocks on the door, speaks to a prospect, and then tries to get hired. D) Cold canvassing is when a person randomly picks a name, individual or business and tries to generate leads. This is what Louisa is doing when she randomly picks doors to knock on to try and generate leads for jobs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
