Advanced Sales Strategies: Selling in challenging times

Selling in today’s highly competitive business environment has become incredibly challenging. Not only do clients have a much wider choice of options, but there are a greater number of suppliers out there offering exactly the same products and services as you do.  Added to that is the dramatic shift in the buyer-seller relationship – so that traditional sales strategies no longer serve.

‘Clients don’t want to be sold to – they want suppliers to listen and advise!’

These days, selling is not about having a great product and delivering a persuasive ‘pitch’ presentation to convince people to buy from you. Clients do not react well to the ‘hard-sell’ – traditional sales behaviours are not only no longer successful, but can be extremely damaging to you and your company’s image, credibility and reputation.

In today’s business world, it’s not WHAT you sell – it’s HOW you sell that counts…

To achieve greater sales success these days, you need to apply a much smarter and relevant approach. One that positions you as an expert consultant and trusted adviser who has the knowledge, skills and patience to first identify what the client really needs, and then help them obtain it. Not only will this foster deep referral (alliance) partnerships with existing clients that stimulate loyalty but also to develop new client acquisitions.
