Award winning writer Jeb Blount describes the world of sales as a roller coaster filled with ups and downs, peaks and troughs. In his book “Fanatical Prospecting” he explains how vital it is that your sales team stay on board throughout the entire ride and don’t become complacent during the peaks so that they forget to keep on top of their prospecting.

Jeb writes about the Law of Replacement as a statistical formula which is essential in order to ensure a steady stream of prospects. He describes a problem he encountered where a sales team had widely missed their targets after two fantastic months of sales. After analysis, he found that the team had prospected hard in the beginning and then worked solidly to close as many deals as they had.

This had resulted in great sales for two months but they had forgotten to continue prospecting at the same time as closing the deals so now they had no new prospects in the pipeline and were back to square one.

The Law of Replacement is described by Jeb as the process of replacing each closed deal and each non-viable prospect which didn’t end in a sale, as you go along so that your pipeline is always full.
