    collaboration and ensure all members of sales teams own the sales strategy In session two Andy explored Simple ways to sell more designed to make communications with leaders subordinates and customers more confident and ultimately provide easy ways for our Rising Stars to sell more Communicate better Sell better Do better Your ability to convince people to say yes defines how successful you are From convincing customers to buy to inspiring your team to excel everything hinges on how you communicate But many comms don t impress Sales meetings often lead nowhere Team meetings often update each other but little else Proposals don t get responded to People hate giving and receiving sales presentations But the good news since everyone else struggles with communication if you can master it you surge ahead of the rest The secret to mastering both sales and comms is to focus on the AFTER s why the other person is better off AFTER wards When selling don t talk about your product we sell exceptional websites focus on the AFTER s they deliver we can help improve your market share stand out from the competition When giving your Elevator Pitch don t talk about what you are I m an accountant or what you do I prepare tax returns Instead focus on the AFTER s you cause I help you pay less tax than you dreamed possible When communicating focus less on the content and more on what you need people to do AFTER it Don t have Update Meetings they just swap info and are usually pretty dull Instead have Improve Meetings where everyone must leave with one new technique they are going to use Don t have Customer Reviews They tend to review past performance and are too historic Instead have Previews where you both spend time analysing how you can bring more value next year Similarly have PREVIEWS with your team rather than simply reviewing performance When creating a presentation don t think what do I want to say Think what do I want to cause After all if your last slide says thank you people say You re welcome Now get out But when you say Next steps there tends to be some Having an AFTER s Focus sounds all so obvious So have a quick Self Check of you and your team 1 Review the home page of your website Does it talk about what you do or what you cause 2 Read the title of your most recent proposal It is called Our proposal or How we can help you transform sales performance 3 Look at the contents page of your proposals Do your headings focus on your features About us Our experience Our expertise Or do they talk about the AFTER s you will bring How we can improve your competitive advantage When you do this you ll see that AFTER s appear in one of three places 1 Nowhere this isn t good 2 At the end

  • A Private Audience with Professor Neil Rackham | The Sales Club
    Most customers would pay a little extra for some advice Customers today The U shaped curve above shows that more buy transactionally AND more want deeper consultative relationships The Transactional problem A face to face transactional sales force costs too much in a market that by definition buys on cost Transactional customers don t want and don t need face to face salespeople Most salespeople have a mix of transactional and consultative opportunities 3 The problem of hybrid sales forces Most sales forces have hybrid salespeople who pursue both transactional and consultative business However no sales force can be effective if the same salespeople are chasing a mixture of Transactional and Consultative opportunities Key Insight Any salesperson who is talented enough to make Consultative sales is too expensive to use for Transactional opportunities where customers don t want and won t pay for high level sales talent Key Insight When salespeople have both Transactional and Consultative opportunities they always pay too much attention to the low margin transactional business at the expense of higher margin Consultative opportunities Oracle Case Study My sales force was so busy knocking off gas stations that they never had time to rob a bank Larry Ellison Co Founder CEO of Oracle Foundation and 3rd wealthiest American in 2011 4 The ever extending sales cycle Selling cycles are getting much longer More complex product service offerings More customers involved in the decision The need to invest earlier in the cycle the end of RFP selling Customers expect much more from the sales process Customised solutions The Customer Decision Process Key Insight by the time an RFP has been issued 70 80 of the decisions have already been made 5 The Decline of RFP Selling Previously companies would do some work prior to agreeing a sale but the majority of the solution would be developed post contract Today companies are paid much later in the process after doing much more of the work 6 Skyrocketing costs of chasing an opportunity Sales costs some facts It costs IBM Global Services an average of 480 000 to pursue each opportunity The Big 4 accountants spend upwards of 1million to try to get an audit Very few companies know what it costs them to chase an opportunity You ain t seen nothing yet So what can organizations do to control these skyrocketing costs They can map opportunities on the Calculus of Success to decide which are worth pursuing Key Insight Five practical suggestions Over resource the best opportunities Take opportunity selection out of the hands of salespeople Involve marketing and marketing tools in opportunity selection Push transactional opportunities to cheaper channels Upgrade the consultative selling effort However What if we don t create the kind of value the customer wants Or worse what if we create expensive value and once we ve solved the problem the customer goes to a cheaper competitor Where we create customer value Today a significant amount of the value we create occurs before the contract

  • Sales Process or Sales Methodology? | The Sales Club
    sales process focuses on opportunities that are good for our organization That is they are good business for us they fit our strategies they fit our ability to support them they are with the customers we are trying to attract and they are aligned with our culture and values as an organization That s why every company has a unique sales process Every company has different strategies different cultures different values What is good business and a great customer for one company may be terrible for another What is a sales methodology Sales methodologies are different Sales methodologies are usually developed by sales training vendors or consultants They represent unique approaches to driving sales effectiveness and developing sales skills There are as many sales methodologies as there are sales training companies to tell the truth it s sometimes difficult to differentiate them Some of the big names include Solution Selling Customer Focused Selling Provocative Selling SPIN Selling Large Account Strategic Account Selling Insight Based Selling Challenger Selling Consultative Selling and on and on and on Many of the sales training methodologies started with a specific focus For example SPIN Selling started with a focus on discovery and a questioning methodology to understand and probe into customer problems Miller Heiman s Large Account Selling originally focused on expanding share and growing presence in large accounts Some methodologies tend to be focused more heavily on a certain part of the sales process For example Challenger focuses more on the very front end of the process providing insights that motivate the customer to take action and change Some methodologies focus on negotiation which occurs at the end of the sales process How does my sales process fit the sales methodology Sales methodologies are often confused with sales process but as I ve outlined here they are different Each vendor has a generic process embedded into their methodology so if an organization doesn t have a sales process they can use the generic vendor supplied process But here s the problem with the generic sales process it means the way we sell semiconductors is the same way we sell enterprise software is the same way we sell machine tools is the same way we sell investment packages is the same way we sell mining equipment It doesn t make sense does it Or here s another problem If we don t have a sales process and our closest competitor doesn t have a selling process and we both use the same generic sales process from the same sales training vendor we would be undifferentiated Now you can start to see the problem with not leveraging your unique selling process If we buy a sales methodology we need to insist the vendor adapt their approach to our sales process not to their generic sales process If we don t we risk confusing salespeople getting zero adoption of either and not getting the best results possible Which sales methodology is right for my company Which sales
