Biggest Reasons Sales People Lose Business – From Harvard Business Review

Posted on by Bill Caskey in All Time Faves, Most Popular Podcasts, Prospecting, Sales Process | Comments Off on Biggest Reasons Sales People Lose Business – From Harvard Business Review

Recently, an article was published by Steve Martin on the Harvard Business Review website called the Ten Reasons Sales People Lose Deals.

Bryan and Bill tear into the ten reasons and come up with solutions to three of them:

  1. What happens when you can’t get to the decision maker?
  2. What if you have a “nice to have” product that isn’t compelling for the prospect?
  3. How do you penetrate new accounts?

Also, send us any thoughts you have about these three or the other seven at listener@advancedsellingpodcast.com

[MAILBAG] Call Reluctance and How To Demonstrate Value – 2 Problems, 2 Solutions

Posted on by Bill Caskey in Mailbag, Sales Process | Comments Off on [MAILBAG] Call Reluctance and How To Demonstrate Value – 2 Problems, 2 Solutions

From the mailbag of listeners this week, two topics come up:

  • 1) Call Reluctance. A listener seems to have a little bit of it and we have some thoughts (all good, of course) on what to do about it.
  • 2) How Can I Demonstrate Value BEFORE the Sale? A listener struggles with this especially since his product is a premium product.

Two great topics that affect virtually every sales and account manager.
