DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The Book that Sparked A Selling Revolution In 1985 one book changed sales and marketing forever. Rejecting manipulative tactics and emphasizing "process," Strategic Selling presented the idea of selling as a joint venture and introduced the decade's most influential concept, Win-Win.

Now Strategic Selling has been updated and revised for a new century of sales success. The New Strategic Selling This new edition of the business classic confronts the rapidly evolving world of business-to-business sales with new real-world examples, new strategies for confronting competition, and a special section featuring the most commonly asked questions from the Miller Heiman workshops. Learn: * How to identify the four real decision makers in every corporate labyrinth * How to prevent sabotage by an internal deal-killer * How to make a senior executive eager to see you * How to avoid closing business that you'll later regret * How to manage a territory to provide steady, not "boom and bust," revenue * How to avoid the single most common error when dealing with the competition.

True or false? In selling high-value products or services: 'closing' increases your chance of success; it is essential to describe the benefits of your product or service to the customer; objection handling is an important skill; open questions are more effective than closed questions. All false, says this provocative book. Neil Rackham and his team studied more than 35,000 sales calls made by 10,000 sales people in 23 countries over 12 years. Their findings revealed that many of the methods developed for selling low-value goods just don‘t work for major sales. Rackham went on to introduce his SPIN-Selling method. SPIN describes the whole selling process: Situation questions Problem questions Implication questions Need-payoff questions SPIN-Selling provides you with a set of simple and practical techniques which have been tried in many of today‘s leading companies with dramatic improvements to their sales performance.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

What's the secret to sales success? If you're like most business leaders, you'd say it's fundamentally about relationships-and you'd be wrong. The best salespeople don't just build relationships with customers. They challenge them. The need to understand what top-performing reps are doing that their average performing colleagues are not drove Matthew Dixon, Brent Adamson, and their colleagues at Corporate Executive Board to investigate the skills, behaviors, knowledge, and attitudes that matter most for high performance. And what they discovered may be the biggest shock to conventional sales wisdom in decades. Based on an exhaustive study of thousands of sales reps across multiple industries and geographies, The Challenger Sale argues that classic relationship building is a losing approach, especially when it comes to selling complex, large-scale business-to-business solutions. The authors' study found that every sales rep in the world falls into one of five distinct profiles, and while all of these types of reps can deliver average sales performance, only one-the Challenger- delivers consistently high performance. Instead of bludgeoning customers with endless facts and features about their company and products, Challengers approach customers with unique insights about how they can save or make money. They tailor their sales message to the customer's specific needs and objectives. Rather than acquiescing to the customer's every demand or objection, they are assertive, pushing back when necessary and taking control of the sale. The things that make Challengers unique are replicable and teachable to the average sales rep. Once you understand how to identify the Challengers in your organization, you can model their approach and embed it throughout your sales force. The authors explain how almost any average-performing rep, once equipped with the right tools, can successfully reframe customers' expectations and deliver a distinctive purchase experience that drives higher levels of customer loyalty and, ultimately, greater growth.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Most salespeople work hard to become proficient in reaching the frontline managers in their markets. However, a salesperson who wishes to achieve long-lasting success with a client will learn how to also appeal to top-level executives from an “above the line” perspective. Master sales trainer Skip Miller shows how to simultaneously sell to both the frontline manager as well as the executive who is more concerned with profit/loss indicators such as ROI, time saved, risk lowered, and productivity improved – a strategy used by Google, Apple, Cisco WebEx, and other powerhouses. In Selling Above and Below the Line, you will learn how to: Create energy by including executives early in the sales process. Ask the right questions and pinpoint big-picture financial needs. Keep “below the line” managers from feeling bypassed. Uncover value propositions that target each set of decision-makers. Sales that seem locked in will stall or go dark. Customers who have been loyal to you suddenly back out of the relationship due to decisions made above the manager’s head. This often could have been avoided had the salesperson been intentional to sell both the technical and financial fit. In Selling Above and Below the Line, learn to effectively communicate both, leading to more successful and lucrative deals than ever before.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

What do winners of major sales do differently than the sellerswho almost won, but ultimately came in second place? Mike Schultz and John Doerr, bestselling authors andworld-renowned sales experts, set out to find the answer. Theystudied more than 700 business-to-business purchases made by buyerswho represented a total of $3.1 billion in annual purchasing power.When they compared the winners to the second-place finishers, theyfound surprising results. Not only do sales winners sell differently, they sellradically differently, than the second-place finishers. In recent years, buyers have increasingly seen products andservices as replaceable. You might think this would meanthat the sale goes to the lowest bidder. Not true! A new breed ofseller—the insight seller—is winning the sale withstrong prices and margins even in the face of increasingcompetition and commoditization. In Insight Selling, Schultz and Doerr share thesurprising results of their research on what sales winners dodifferently, and outline exactly what you need to do to transformyourself and your team into insight sellers. They introduce asimple three-level model based on what buyers say tip the scales infavor of the winners: Level 1 "Connect." Winners connect the dots betweencustomer needs and company solutions, while also connecting withbuyers as people. Level 2 "Convince." Winners convince buyers that they canachieve maximum return, that the risks are acceptable, and that theseller is the best choice among all options. Level 3 "Collaborate." Winners collaborate with buyers bybringing new ideas to the table, delivering new ideas and insights,and working with buyers as a team. They also found that much of the popular and current advicegiven to sellers can damage sales results. Insight Sellingis both a strategic and tactical guide that will separate the goodadvice from the bad, and teach you how to put the three levels ofselling to work to inspire buyers, influence their agendas, andmaximize value. If you want to find yourself and your team in thewinner's circle more often, this book is a must-read.
