  • Don’t Let ‘Em Off Easy: How to Hold Prospects Accountable Feb 20 2020 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Kristie Jones, The Sales Call Reluctance Expert
    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

  • How To Lead the (R)evolution with Your Sales Force Feb 19 2020 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mike Kunkle, The Sales Transformation Expert
    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
