Sellers must build strong relationships as they affect success at every stage of the sales process.
Sellers must lead masterful conversations across the sales process and with strategic accounts.
It's the job of a seller to influence buyer agendas, actions, and decisions.
The ultimate recognition of creating value is winning the sale. Winning doesn’t just happen, though. Sellers have to make it happen and beat the competition.
Assuming you are selected by the buyer, often you enter a negotiation phase. The idea is to maintain margin and prices by focusing on value over price.
You have to communicate the full value of the solution so the buyer understands it as well as you do.
You can’t sell if you don’t have opportunities. If value is the outcome, then infuse value in the prospecting process itself.
Whether you or the buyer drives the need, once you understand it, you must craft a solution that actually creates the most value.
With needs discovery, the idea is to find out what may be most valuable to a buyer when they indicate they have need. Most sales processes focus solely on needs discovery. That’s only half the story. Sellers should also drive need proactively. With driving need, the idea is to find untapped value in the market and at accounts, and then make a case for doing something about it that creates value for the buyer.
At the center is value. When sellers can create value, they win. This is the end goal. Everything else in the wheel connects to value.
