Top 5 Selling Challenges we hear from sales professionals across the globe:
Difficulty Differentiating Yourself From Your Competition
Salespeople that struggle differentiating themselves and their products need to establish a Unique Value Proposition (UVP). A UVP should detail what it is that your company does that your competition doesn’t, can’t or won’t do in the marketplace. They also need to know who their competition is, what products/services their competition offers and how they go to market.
Elongated Sales Cycles
In order to avoid elongated sales cycles it is crucial that salespeople get to the Decision Maker early in the sales process and to engage them in strategic/proactive conversations. Then they need to accurately match their solution to their prospect’s need. The best way to do that is to ask “needs-based” questions.
Poor Close Rates
The best way to increase your close rate is to utilize referral-based selling. Our research shows that cold calling has a single digit close rate (3 to 9%) while referred business closes at a significantly higher rate, in a shorter period of time and normally for a larger dollar amount.
Difficulty Cost-Justifying a Sale
The best salespeople look forward to cost-justifying their solution because they are skillful at documenting the value that they bring. They have a formula. They know what can be measured and are experts in articulating the cost of delay to their advantage.
Handling Sales Objections
The good news is that a sales objection most often is a buying signal! The most common sales objections we hear are: Price, Budget and Preferring Another Vendor. It’s imperative to be prepared for these objections plus others that you may face so you can Stand Firm in your negotiations. We have developed a detailed program (our Objection Response Library) that addresses the steps, actions and dialogue required to hold your own and proactive address objections when they are raised.
