Salespeople are now teaching because the buyers already have done research. A salesperson needs to add value. Otherwise, they are relegated to being walking catalogs, and who needs another one of those?
What does my sales process look like? Do you need more leads? Stop asking the dumb questions.
Wouldn't it be better if you opened with, "Hey Steve, I've spoken to a hundred people just like you in your same position, and some of the challenges I've heard people are this, this and this. Do any of these resonate with you?" take it further, "These are some of the solutions people have come to in order to try to solve some of those challenges."
Suddenly you are someone of interest to that prospect. This is only a taste of what is covered in this episode. Tune in to hear all the ideas and solutions.
