Close alignment of sales with marketing markedly increases the likelihood of major account growth.

    Volumes have been written about how to match your sales process to “the buyers’ journey.” Frankly I think most people involved in selecting and influencing big, complex buying decisions in large corporations don’t have any real clue how to do it. Procurement people have a set of procedures and rules, but they still have to satisfy the end users, who may have very different ideas about what criteria are most important. And the relative power of procurement and executive users varies greatly. Smart sellers know how to lead the buyers to the right decision, and how to do that is the subject of this webinar.

    You will learn:

    1. How to locate and connect with the appropriate buyers and influencers.
    2. How to plan with an internal team.
    3. How to plan for the initial meeting..
    4. How to prepare great questions.
    5. What to do when the process stalls.

    Description: Part #9 in the series Your Growth Ecosystem: Don’t Think Small About Your Big Accounts. For CEOs, Presidents, Founders/Owners, Business Development Heads, Sales VPs, and Key Account Managers of companies of any size, with special relevance to those with $10 million to $500 million in annual revenue. The series is a strategic, high-level approach to managing your organization to successfully sell and grow sales to multinational and global corporations.
    When you have sold a deal into a big corporation, you will often have a delivery team inside that account, led by a project manager, at the same time that another sales rep or account manager from your company is working to land new business. The new business opportunity may be in another facility—in another region, a different subsidiary, even another country. Far too often, there is no contact between the team inside and the team selling new business. That’s a huge lack of foresight and opportunity, both to serve your client better and to improve your chances of success. This webinar is about how to manage your inside team(s) to produce steady new revenue from your large account.

    You will learn:

    1. What assumptions you should make about your global clients.
    2. How management training and sales training needs to address these issues.
    3. What opportunities you should be looking for.
    4. How to use this circumstance to become a trusted advisor.
    5. How to align your sales strategy with your customer’s strategic objectives.
