94% of buying executives expect salespeople to have business impact discussions with them, but only 19% of salespeople are effective at this.

Today, needs-based selling, while necessary, is not sufficient to differentiate yourself in a crowded marketplace. Instead of asking the same questions and collecting the same data as your competitors, your salespeople should be engaging buying executives in business impact discussions. What if your salespeople could sell based on how customers define value?

Succeeding in 2019 requires your salespeople to be able to uncover what buying executives truly value. It starts with equipping your salespeople with the strategic approaches and tools they need to identify customers’ value criteria and create solutions that advance the business. In this session, you will learn what your salespeople need to understand about the customer’s value chain, as well as how to uncover their hidden needs in order to improve that value creation process. As a result, your salespeople will be able to have business impact discussions with executives, create greater differentiation, and generate higher win rates.

During this webinar, you will:
  • Explore the mindset required for selling to value and not simply selling to expressed needs
  • Recognize the importance of differentiating yourself by selling to value
  • Learn a model for understanding your customer’s value creation process
  • Learn an approach for discovering hidden needs

By understanding how your customer creates value and selling to that value, you set yourself apart from other salespeople who sell only to known needs.
