The first year of developing a new sales territory or establishing new customers is a daunting task mdash:especially in dog-eat-dog industries. The traditional advice is to train quickly on products, grab a customer list, start calling for appointments, discover opportunities, and close deals. In fact, almost every sales model out there is based on nothing more than 'opportunity' management. But jumping straight to opportunity will leave salespeople chasing their tails and coming up short on payday.
With an emphasis on basic sales skills that have been refreshed for today's generation of buyers, Trust-Based Selling shows there is a significant problem you must overcome when opening up new accounts and territories. No matter what you are selling, your prospect already has a trusted relationship with an incumbent vendor and will continue to buy from that vendor even when you have the better solution. The playing field is not level mdash:and you rsquo:re on the wrong side. So how can you compete to win?
'Trust is the grease that makes business sales effortless,' writes sales pro and trainer Dave Monty in this quick-read book. Opportunity metrics are important, but trust mdash:and a few sharp insider tactics Monty reveals mdash:is the guidepost that leads to success. Trust-Based Selling mdash:an abridgement of Monty's Sales Hunting mdash:helps you start establishing trust before you step foot in a prospect rsquo:s door, and it shows you the tactics necessary to penetrate new accounts. It also explains:
- The new basic sales skills as taught by master salesman Dave Monty
- Why trust-based relationships enable you to get and keep customers for life
- How to get in step with the customer rsquo:s buying cycle
- How to establish trust-based and traditional sales metrics to guide your efforts
With advice based on Monty rsquo:s twenty years of IT sales and sales management experience mdash:along with principles confirmed by academic research mdash: Trust-Based Selling is a fast read that is packed with real-life examples and prescriptions for achieving sales success. It will prove a lifesaver for any new salesperson, as well as sales veterans needing to develop new skills and rekindle the zeal required to succeed in sales.
