How to use our product knowledge and market expertise to coach our customers
Why coaching customers is VERY different to a conventional “discovery call” - W/C 25 September
I hope you and your team have had a successful week!
Question: What’s the single most common mistake made by people in sales roles?
My Answer: Across the 40 years that I’ve been training salespeople, the most common mistake I see being made by salespeople is that they spend too much time talking about what they’re trying to sell.
There are lots of reasons that lead to this fundamental error. And a whole range of ways of talking less about what we’re trying to sell.
Next week, my Daily Sales Reset emails will be about my personal favourite strategy for leading better conversations with our customers.
We’ll look together at how we can use our product knowledge and market expertise to coach our customers.
