Here’s what’s in this email:

Negotiating Skills at Every Stage of Selling
The theme for Daily Sales Reset emails next week is Negotiating Skills.
Negotiation is one of the most important skills in business. However, many people in selling roles believe:
Negotiating is all about the price.
They don’t have the authority to negotiate.
Negotiation is what happens at the end of the sales discussion when we try to minimise any discounts that customers are seeking!
The truth is that negotiation should be an integral part of every stage of your sales process. Members of your sales team have countless opportunities to negotiate more effectively.
Throughout next week, Daily Sales Reset emails and videos will introduce the key aspects of this vitally important skill.
Daily Topics Next Week
Uncovering the core principles that underpin successful negotiations.
Everybody has the power, authority and plenty of opportunities to negotiate!
How to negotiate “Win-Win Agreements” because different stakeholders value things differently.
“I’ll give you some of what you want in exchange for you giving me some of what I want”
Becoming more aware of the key opportunities we have to negotiate at every stage of the sales process.
One of the best examples is how to schedule a follow-up meeting to review your draft proposals.
Key reasons why we need to develop the greatest possible commercial awareness to become effective negotiators.
Crucial aspects of commercial awareness include all aspects of cash flow and profitability, managing risks, and clarifying operational accountability.
Introducing the four stages of structured negotiations: Prepare, Discuss, Bargain, Conclude.
Learning to give away nothing without getting something in return.
It's time to celebrate your progress and relax!
Your team members are prompted to reflect on what they learned and improved in the previous week.
