In my experience this is seldom the case in large account, complex sales.

  • The Seller’s Challenge—Work with or Around Procurement!
    The Seller’s Challenge—Work with or Around Procurement!
    Thomas Williams, The Complex Sale Expert Recorded: Oct 24 2019 43 mins
    Is Procurement a “friend or foe”? B2B sellers globally struggle with this seemingly simple question. The answer depends on many factors including geography, industry, regulations, the product your selling and company policy.

    Conventional wisdom has been to avoid Procurement and sell directly to end users by selling value. This is often sound advice and the preferred pathway to the sale. For this pathway to work the end user must have the interest, power and influence to relegate Procurement to the issuance of a purchase order.

    For many sellers, however, it is simply not possible to get to end users without first engaging with Procurement. In these organizations, end users are required to work collaboratively with Procurement.

    In this webinar we’ll unlock the Procurement function and show sellers how to win.

    You will learn:
    Two sales strategies for sellers
    Understand the Procurement Department: its objectives, functions, sourcing strategies and how they are measured internally

    Don’t Let ‘Em Off Easy: How to Hold Prospects Accountable
    Kristie Jones, The Sales Call Reluctance Expert Feb 20 2020 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Keeping deals flowing through the pipeline is critical for Sales Reps to hit quota and for companies to realize revenue goals. However, preventing deals from stalling out and prospects from disappearing isn’t easy. Forty-six percent of sales reps missed their quota in 2018. 

    Too often, the prospect takes over control of the sales process and all communication ends up being on their terms, making it easier for them to procrastinate or opt-out of the deal completely. 

    In order for sales representatives to effectively land deals, they need to know how to hold prospects accountable. Establishing urgency and being persistent is key, but it’s also important for representatives to know when to walk away from a deal that’s going nowhere.

    In this presentation, Kristie Jones, Founder and Principal of Sales Acceleration Group, shares her tactics for taking back control, creating specific timelines, and communicating clear expectations to prospects to ensure they know exactly what their role in the sales process is.

    You will learn:

    How to create an upfront contract with prospects that establishes how your sales process works
    How to teach prospects that you’re going to hold them accountable
    Why it’s necessary to give prospects homework and a deadline
    How to establish consequences for a prospect’s bad behavior
    What are the signs that it’s time to walk away from a deal that’s not progressing
