  • It's Time for a Buyer-Centric Selling System!
    It's Time for a Buyer-Centric Selling System!
    Mike Kunkle, The Sales Transformation Expert Feb 19 2020 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Have you seen the recent B2B buying research? Study after study report that buyers:
    - don’t trust salespeople
    - don’t believe they understand them or their businesses
    - do more and more of their own research
    - aren't getting the insights they want from sellers
    - are growing weary of stereotypical seller behavior.

    More than ever before, buyers don’t want to feel “sold to.” Yet, sellers still have quotas and a job to do. It’s a conundrum, for sure.

    Fortunately, there is a path forward. It’s time to shift to a buyer-centric selling system that prepares reps to deal with modern buyers to “help them buy” and earn their respect and trust, while still being able to meet company quotas and succeed in sales.

    The remaining challenge is how to get your sales force moving in this direction and selling in a new buyer-centric way. That’s no small feat, either.

    After outlining why it's time to change and what buyer-centric selling really means, Mike will share how to lead the (r)evolution with your sales force, to change behaviors and achieve mastery with this new methodology.

    You will learn:

    1.Why it’s absolutely imperative to make the shift to a buyer-centric selling system now!
    2.What a buyer-centric selling system really means.
    3.How to guide your sales force through the shift

    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

  • Score Meetings with Prospects in One Call
    Score Meetings with Prospects in One Call
    Joanne Black, The Referral Selling Expert Feb 28 2020 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Referrals are your ticket to the C-Suite—to any decision maker, for that matter. The biggest challenge sales managers face is lead generation: getting a consistent stream of qualified leads and reaching ideal prospects quickly. Referral selling
    solves these prospecting problems and more. Referrals are the fastest revenue-driver with no marketing costs,
    a 50%+ close rate, and pre-qualified leads in the pipeline.

    Yet, 95 percent of companies haven't adopted a systematic, disciplined, referral program with metrics, skills, and accountability for results—even though generating referral leads is their most productive outbound prospecting
    strategy. Sales reps don’t need to jump through hoops to get meetings. They always get a meeting, because they
    receive introductions from their prospects’ trusted colleagues.

    Whether you make cold calls now or not, leverage the power of your referral network and hit your sales numbers
    without hitting the phones. Your business development will never be the same. It's the one-call referral meeting!


    You will learn:

    1.Why referrals are gold—and yet almost no one is investing in their development
    2.The biggest reason you’re not getting the referral business you think you’re entitled to
    3.3 referral traps to avoid
    4.How to jump-start referral selling today

  • Disqualify Hard: Close Easy
    Disqualify Hard: Close Easy
    Marcus Cauchi and Bob Apollo Mar 20 2020 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Traditional selling focuses on qualifying prospects into the funnel. We will explain why you must focus on disqualifying out the non-prospects, wrong prospects and bad business. You will learn why this approach will free up your salespeople to focus on high value activities, increase the time available for selling by as much as 500% and increase the time salespeople are highly productive by up to 400%. This in turn frees up managers to focus on their highest value activities:

    • Hire the best people
    • Get the best out of them
    • Get into the field supporting salespeople and partners

    Marcus and Bob will explain why salespeople hang on to non-opportunities and why weak sales managers tolerate this unproductive behaviour.

    In an increasingly competitive selling environment, with an over reliance on technology instead of focusing on doing the basics well, consistently, over time and meaning it, we will show you why what you have always done is hurting you, your salespeople and your business.

    Prepare to be challenged, to feel uncomfortable and leave with practical insights you can apply immediately in your sales teams.

    You will learn:

    1. Why you need to stop qualifying in, and instead, disqualify out to close more sales, faster
    2. Why you must focus on managing the middle of the funnel
    3. Why pipeline hygiene is essential to forecasting accuracy and building a sustainable business
    4. Why traditional pipeline management wastes scarce resources, distracts from real opportunities and contributes to only 44% of sales reps hitting quota
    5. Why a clean, healthy pipeline will drive up close ratios and shorten sales cycles
