Key Thing You Need to Know about This Program: The business-to-business sales process is complex. In some cases, you may need to influence over a half-dozen people in order to acquire a new customer. The modern sales process is challenging, time-consuming and fraught with obstacles you need to overcome. In this highly-interactive session, trainer extraordinaire Kim Dean will guide you through a modern process to accelerate your selling process to new and existing customers.
Complexity Level: Medium
Immediate Implementation Opportunity: High. Participants will leave the program with techniques they can implement today to show more value to their prospects.
To be truly effective and differentiated in the eyes of today’s buyers, salespeople need to create value in the buying experience itself. That means helping customers to better understand the true nature of a business issue and how best to address it.
More than ever, sales professionals must demonstrate credibility, foster trust and openness through authenticity, offer ideas that shape thinking and help surface unrecognized needs and connect the dots to create value.
In this session, Modern Consultative Selling Skills, we will focus on the critical structure of a sales conversation and the skills required to lead a successful, buyer-focused dialogue that opens more doors, helps you better understand customer needs, more persuasively articulate value, and close more deals.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN AT THIS PROGRAM:
- Ways to engage with your customers to help accelerate the sales process
- How to make storytelling an important part of your sales process
- Questioning strategies to learn more about your customers and prospects
- How to uncover richer opportunities that may not be apparent
In this program, you will learn practical, effective, and immediately applicable skills that you can use in your very next sales call or meeting. These skills will help you shorten the sales cycle, build relationships of trust with clients and prospects, and win more business for your organization.
