Summary and Info
TodayвЂ™s sales professionals are hungrier than ever for new ideas to help them avoid the dreaded ''vendor'' label. YesterdayвЂ™s sales professional relied on comparing product features and benefits, low prices, and aggressive closings. Today, a new vernacular is emerging to describe sales success. Selling value. Selling as a process. Being more than a vendor. Increasing margins. Making price irrelevant. Winning executive-level credibility. Creating competitive immunity. These are the watchwords driving the 21st century sales professional. Where challenges abound, however, genuine solutions remain scarce. Breaking out of the ''vendor trap'' requires nothing short of a wholesale rethinking of what it means to sell value. Salespeople must reevaluate the types of opportunities they pursue, how they plan accounts, what they learn about their customers, and the level of customer theyвЂ™re willing to sell to. Such a revolutionary change in approach to the nature of sales also requires a new strategic step-by-step plan for progressing through the sales cycle. That is precisely the process described in Beyond Selling Value. Featuring success stories culled from dozens of real-life selling challenges, Beyond Selling Value takes the reader out of the world of dry, textbook selling and onto the corporate front lines.
