Sales organizations often look at the competition as the enemy that must be beaten!  With this mindset, as a salesperson you are often put in a position where you fight the competition on the customer’s front lawn, in full view.  You need to shift the rules of the game from competing against the competition to competing on behalf of the customer by recognizing and delivering value. Value that is defined by the customer, not by a list of features and benefits.  In this session, we will explore an approach to understanding value to the customer, and how specific moves and strategies affect the customer and disable the competition.

In this webcast we will examine:
  • How to look at a current sales opportunity based on your understanding of what the customer values
  • How to create a value map that plots your position relative to the customer’s perception of value, and relative to the competition
  • How to identify three strategies to develop your next moves, while anticipating the competition’s and the customer’s next moves
