It suits every level and type of selling, even selling within highly competitive and commoditised industries.

But, from a foundation of building strong relationships, mapping buying and selling processes, Relationship Driven selling can bring huge benefits if you’re looking to scale up from smaller sales to enterprise sales.

In it’s simplest form Relationship Driven selling is based on a simple premise.

That two peer to peer problem solvers are better than one.

Creating breakthrough solutions together, conventional roles of buyer and seller morph into a collaborate partnership to drive through change and create a new, perhaps previously unconsidered, solutions to an old problem.

Account based selling is less about hunting and farming those elusive ‘golden’ leads and more about predicting what industry/sector/niche is most likely to have a viable need for your product  or service.

More and more important as GDPR takes hold, as buyers become more elusive and business strive for larger clients, stronger relationships, niche markets, higher levels of buyer loyalty.

Account based selling is about knowing your industry, your niche, your market and your opportunities to exploit the changes and demands/trends within those.

Very useful where sales-led firms are looking for partnerships as much as opportunities to invoice. Account based selling can support these aims and make the ROI form sales activities increase dramatically.

Also supports a more entrepreneurial and enterprise mindset suitable for fast movers/first to market and organisations with a need to lead the market rather than be led.

You get to see what is causing you to lose sales and what is helping you win new raving fans.

Adding sales metrics to a well thought out sales process is a turning point in the efficiency/effectiveness journey for many sales team.

You can start here and see a difference in a very short space of time.

Building a Great Call Structure for Cold Calling – Cold Calling Sales Call Structures that Work.

Engaging high level sales decision makers in cold calling, even those that are social contacts, still takes a heap of focused effort.

The worst case is when there is no standard call structure and efforts, and therefore results, are hit a and miss.

Opportunities are burned.

Potential orders lost.

Staff dejected and unmotivated.

Stress levels soar.

Face to Face Sales Call Structures that Convert – Structure Sales Presentations that Convert Prospects to Buyers.

You’ve seen above the options you have in terms of sales methodologies.

I believe, and therefore I train, in all of these. I also believe that there is no, one size fits all sales call structure.

There is, however, a sales mindset that is the very smartest foundation for any and all sales based conversations.

It’s the same whether that’s on the telephone, face to face, networking or even getting warmed up for hard-core aerobics class.

In this module we specifically look at face to face interactions, capitalising on all the elements of the sales methodologies.

Think of it as installing the Sales Software into your core thinking.

Sales software so powerful that sales based conversations become mutually educational, insightful, challenging, educational and collaborative for both parties.

The Objection Free Sales Pitch – Sales People Create Objections for Buyers – How to Avoid Creating Objections.

Buyers rarely have real objections.

That’s a fact.

What buyers do have are questions around what a sales person has told them.

That sentence alone should give you some idea as to why I think most sales objections are caused by the sales person.

If that’s true (and it is) then sales objections can be avoided at best, and minimised always.

Structuring a sales pitch so that it’s objection free is less about what you say and more about how you say it.

This is a high impact course and flips a pretty big light switch for anyone in any form of sales role.

This sales play book won’t.

If this is the case a dynamic sales playbook will help you (start to) drive the changes you want to make in the most controlled, intuitive and productive way.

Sales Metric and Sales Performance Management – What Sales Metrics to Use, How, When and Why.

A minefield.

Sales metrics are great. But too often they are measured after the game has finished and the results are posted.

In this module we look at all the sales levers and metrics you could use to enhance, predict and stabilise sales in your team.

Many sales metrics or sales performance measures will totally conflict.

I’ve seen managers try to drive call volume and drive talk time at the same time…and wonder why the sales team get confused.

Looking at sales metrics that boost sales, increase motivation and but the sales person in the driving seat with accountability for how they operate and spend their time.
