Sales & Marketing

Sales and marketing alignment is about one shared goal: revenue that is delivered or over-delivered every quarter. As marketing converges with customer service and sales, marketing today is more about helping and less about hyping. Alignment in both functions ensure prospecting is effective, pipelines are filled, conversion and retention rates are high.

Though markets and channels continue to evolve, the fundamentals of acquiring and keeping customers remain at the core of all sales and marketing strategies. Even social selling expands on the age-old basics of getting to know your customers and meeting their needs.

Strategic Selling For Key Accounts™

Anticipating Buyer Concerns

Have you ever wondered what your prospects and customers go through in deciding whether or not to buy your product or service? Why do some clients, for whom your product seems a perfect match, decide not to buy? How can you support a client through the anguish of decision-making?

Decisions are made by people, and people act and react differently in accordance with their internal needs. When you respond to those needs, your customer is more receptive to your suggestions, recommendations, and proposals. As product standardization increases and price becomes an issue, companies need to encourage their salespeople to:

  • Position themselves as problem solvers.
  • Create long-term, Win/Win relationships with their customers.

Objectives

  • Understand how your natural communication style affects your ability to be an effective salesperson.
  • Develop the ability to recognize the internal needs of others by their observable behaviours, and to relate those needs to the product or service you are selling.
  • Be able to use your behaviour to build trust with people who have different communication styles.
  • Prepare and commit to solving an important real-life sales challenge after the workshop by choosing someone you want to influence more effectively.
  • Learn how to select what benefits people need to hear in order to be motivated to “Buy/Accept” your proposals.
  • Apply the Communicate and Win™ Expert
  • Profiling System to create a Gameplan™ for sales success.

Selling Your Technological Solutions™

Gaining Acceptance for New Ideas

How many times, after giving a technological presentation have you felt frustrated by the resistance to new ideas and thought, “They just don’t get it”? And how many times have you presented the solution to a problem, or an understanding of opportunities, but lacked the ability to communicate your conviction and influence your audience to follow through?
