Objective based selling looks at how to align the conversation with the buyer’s objectives, and leveraging those objectives to create a better conversation that drives mutual opportunities and success. With changes in the buying and selling dynamic, B2B buyers who are ready to buy are much better informed and more empowered than ever, and unless sellers are that much better prepared they risk being reduced to glorified order takers. Buyers who are not in the market, the so called Status Quo, are more time deprived than ever and are much less susceptible to traditional sales approaches and conversations. Impervious to pains, needs or solutions, a large segment of your market is better able to cocoon themselves from traditional sellers and sales conversations.
The presentation will cover how to take advantage of current realities and present specific ways sellers can successfully approach and engage prospects, but create selling opportunities where others may not see any, and in the process build credibility, expert status, and loyalty with existing and new buyers. Objective based selling is a process based, value driven four plank platform for success in selling to Status Quo buyers, the most overlooked segment of the market:
• Breaking down "Value" to core components and why people buy
• Leveraging past experiences – Won, Lost and No Decision deals – 360o Deal View
• Building a better question
• Proactive exploration
Did you know that ALL sales training has an impact on sales productivity? Yep, all training, no matter how much (or how little) time it takes will affect sales productivity. All training, regardless of quality, will also have some impact on sales productivity.
The problem is... All sales training has a negative impact on sales productivity, at least initially. After all, you're taking sellers out of the field and that alone reduces their sales productivity. Then you've got to factor in the learning curve and the natural struggle that goes along with learning.
What that means is that sales training is inherently risky! You've got to do a little planning in order to make sure this downturn will rebound as quickly as possible and generate the increase in sales productivity, the ROI, you were hoping to get. Learn the steps you need to take in this webinar conducted by a former sales manager and corporate sales trainer in a Fortune 500 company so you'll never make the mistakes that reduce sales productivity after training.
