    Melissa Madian, The Sales Experience Expert w/guest, Svet Rouskov
    Every great story has a hero who we want to see live “happily ever after.” If you are a salesperson, the story you tell needs to center on your customer as the hero; yet most salespeople make the story about themselves instead.

    1. The fundamentals of telling an effective story.
    2. Tips and techniques that the pros of storytelling use to make a compelling, engaging story.

  • Why ROI Selling doesn’t have to be hard Oct 1 2021 2:00 am UTC 49 mins
    Phillip Kreindler, The Winning Complex Sales Expert w/guest, Mike Genstil – CEO of VisualizeROI
    If you want to win deals quickly and at the right price, it’s essential to quantify the cost the buyer incurs with the status quo, and the value of moving to your solution. When you don’t present your value and ROI effectively, you will lose deals unnecessarily to no-decision, budget will be shifted to other projects or priorities, or you will only win with substantial discounts.
    Although presenting your solution’s ROI would seem an obvious step in any substantial sales opportunity, salespeople rarely attempt this exercise!
    What You Will Learn
    In this session, we will explore the following topics about ROI selling:

    1. At what stages in the sales process can ROI quantification be most effective?
    2. When do you not need an ROI?
    3. What barriers prevent sales organizations from effectively adopting ROI selling?
    4. Which types of organizations tend to succeed in operationalizing ROI selling, and which ones do not?
    5. What are the negative effects of not employing value selling across a sales organization?
    5. How do you calculate an ROI in the most basic form?
    7. What are best practices in showing your ROI visually?

    A methodology for ROI selling in your business will be presented during this session.

  • XO: eXtraordinary Outcomes - Episode 38 Recorded: Sep 24 2021 43 mins
    Subhanjan Sarkar, The Buyer-Led Sales Expert
    Selling Remote is here to stay. Face to face meetings - which were already super difficult to land, are unlikely to remain the primary go to option for Sales folks. While the world changed practically overnight, we seem to have missed the writing on the wall. The fact that The Buyer Has Changed. And she is not buying the way she used to even 10 years back.

    The core of the value transaction process is now hinged on the Buyers desired outcomes. Because, although we believed otherwise - every single sale is closed by the buyer. We need to refocus our attention to the Buyer who is at the center of our success. We need to unlearn and now relearn the way to engage with this new buyer. On her terms.

    The eXtraordinary Outcomes Show will do just that. Bring you face to face with the New Buyer. And let you into her world. So together we can create eXtraordinay Outcomes!

    See you every Friday at 9am EST.
