Sales Training to Address the Key Challenges Faced By Underperforming SaaS Sales Teams

Your sales training is based on the key issues we’ve identified in SaaS sales teams that prevent them from achieving their full sales potential, take a look here…

Complex Product Knowledge | Converting Complex to Simple for the Buyer

The first sales you make is to the sales team

If you sales team don’t understand the impact of your solution, and love it – then they will never be able to sell it!

SaaS products often boast intricate features and functionalities.

Sales reps can struggle to convey the value proposition effectively.

During our training, we take the complex and make it simple so that it makes sense to your reps and your buyers.

Simplicity reduces friction.

Unlocking your sales rep’s ability to showcase your solution easily and directly, which means they will articulate its benefits clearly to potential clients.

This is a 100% win every single time!

Plus – it means your reps get taken more seriously by senior decision makers as any conversation becomes a peer-to-peer consultation.

Extended Sales Cycles | Dealing with Lengthy Sales Processes

The nature of SaaS sales often involves prolonged sales cycles…that are only getting longer.

Especially when it comes to more and more people being added to the procurement and testing panel. Multiple, diverse stake holder agendas and the inevitable conflicting needs that crop up as the review process extends…

So, to combat how to deal with that we delve into sales techniques for

  • Keeping prospects engaged
  • Managing expectations
  • Strategically advancing deals through each stage of the sales funnel
  • Maintaining engagement with all the critical stakeholder groups as you go

This helps you avoid delays, late curve balls and competitors infiltrating your deal pipeline!

Overcoming Objections | Handling Client Concerns Before They Become Issues

SaaS sales reps frequently encounter objections related to

  • Requests for free trials
  • Pricing
  • Implementation
  • Competition
  • Contract terms – like duration and support

The easiest way to combat this is to make sure these challenges are raised and addressed proactively BEFORE the buyer brings these points into the conversation.

In the SaaS Sales Training course we dig into this sales plug hole because sales can easily be lost if these simple known friction points aren’t addressed fully and proactively.

Leaving known sales objections dangling and hoping they don’t come up is a disastrous strategy. Even more so when there is a clear opportunity to build clarification and persuasion into dealing with these points early on.

It’s a game changer for you, and deal killer for your competitors!

Intense Competition | Standing Out in a Crowded Market

The SaaS landscape is highly competitive, and sales reps face the challenge of differentiating their product from countless alternatives and substitutes or work-arounds….and whilst they might not be valid alternatives, this is something the prospect is not always aware of.

From a prospects perspective – perception is their reality.

During the sales training we explore strategies for crafting compelling highly differentiated value propositions that resonate with prospect and set your SaaS solution apart.

The aim is to remove competitors from the field asap during the sales process….and in doing so create THE No-Brainer Sales Proposition.

Adapting to Industry Trends | Staying Current in a Rapidly Changing Space

SaaS is known for its rapid evolution, with new trends and technologies constantly emerging.

This can contribute to confusion in your sales team as well as the market, that’s why all sales training at Morton Kyle is based on:

  • Consultative Selling
  • Solution Selling
  • Value Selling

All sales pitches are structure in terms of:

  • Solving buyer problems
  • Improving buyer positions
  • Creating buyer value

Again, all critical in removing buyer resistance and friction in the sales process. Meaning more sales, more often, with less stress.

Technical Jargon |Simplifying Technical Complexity

SaaS products often come with technical complexities that can be overwhelming for non-technical buyers. To combat this, as well as adopting the methods detailed above, we look at how to structure the sales call and sales conversation so as not to alienate the prospect.

Out training provides ways to bridge the communication gap.

Removing technical jargon means it’s easier to effectively conveying the value of your solution in plain language.

It’s critical to meet the buyer where they are in their journey. Using their words/language and their frames of reference. Our training is structured to help your reps reduce the resistance and friction that can crop up if this is missed.

Lack of Personalisation | Tailored Sales Approaches

Generic sales pitches fall short in the personalised world of SaaS.

They just don’t work.

We guide your sales reps in adopting a personalised approach using a sales framework based on consultative selling.

This acts as a foundation for building tailored sales solutions, and aligns directly with the unique needs and pain points of each prospect.

Time and time again this is a game changer in sales. And singularly critical in enhancing the chances of meaningful engagement, conversation and conversion.

Resistance to Change | Overcoming Resistance

SaaS solutions often require clients to adapt to new technologies and workflows. After all, this is probably a purchase to automate some workflow or increase effectiveness and efficiency.

All this screams ‘new adoption’

Which means however good your product/service is – adoption is key if you want to minimise customer churn…and who doesn’t want to do that?

During the SaaS sales training, as part of the consultative selling process we develop strategies for identifying and overcoming resistance to change, ensuring that your sales team can effectively guide clients through the transition process in preparation for maximising usage / hand across to the implementation team.

Maintaining a Winning Mindset | Building Sales Success Systems

Sales reps need to know their numbers, inside out and back to front.

This will help your reps stay in control, take accountability and change their daily activities based on how they are performing.

Building self management into the SaaS sales training course can empower reps, lead to shorter sales meetings and make sales pipeline review meetings a breeze.

All meaning the sales leader gets more time to support, coach and develop their team, ensuring that your team is well-equipped to handle the evolving challenges of the SaaS sales landscape.

It’s a win for all!

Lack of Post-Sale Support | Ensuring Customer Success

The selling doesn’t stop because the order is signed!
