Selling in the Software/Tech and SaaS Space is Competitive!

And there is only ever one winner!

You know you’re in a competitive space, and guess what? Your prospects know that too.

Yes – they read the press release about you getting VC backing to sky-rocket your sales rev….which translates for power to your prospect because they know you need their business, and you don’t want the deal to fall to a competitor.

Plus, sales prospects are looking at you in a sea of other solutions – often because they:

  • Don’t full understand the scope of their problem – so struggle to see a fit between your solution and their challenges
  • Have short attention spans that can only take in so much before every solution looks the same!

Sadly, no matter how unique and valuable your benefits are…they won’t see that,

And that’s your first challenge!

To fix this you need to get their attention – to do this you MUST help the buyer do three things:

  • Scope out their problem
  • Map their challenges
  • Quantify the impacts

But, you’re still only half way there, because you now need to solve those issues immediately by showing them:

  • Your specific fix for each one of their issues and challenges
  • How it works
  • How it’s worked for people just like them

If you can’t get their attention, you’ll never get their order….but once you’ve got their attention – give them exactly what they need – a specific and tailored fix

How much of your sales pitch is geared up to fight for the prospects attention?

Probably not as much as you need.

If you think the fact that you have awards, endorsements, testimonials will save you…thing again. because, sadly, these are just the bare minimum you need to get your prospect to the table!

  • Or fail to even show up at all?
  • Why is your  ‘Closed – Lost’ pile growing at a faster rate than your ‘Closed – Won’ pile?

How to Book More High-Converting SaaS Demo Calls

It’s failure to get the first contact right that kill the sales opportunity.

That’s right – or in other words – when good leads turn bad!

So when the sales dip is NOT about the content of your sales pitch….more likely it’s about how you structure your sales pitch!

If you’re in software and SaaS sales, and are back to back with calls and demo’s, but not seeing a high enough conversion rate to orders…then our SaaS sales training solution removes all the common sales trip wires

Our Software Sales Training Courses and SaaS Sales Training Course will:

  • Show you how to pitch so you’ll be head and shoulders above the competition
  • Build value and get your positioning spot on so the prospect feels comfortable recommending you above others.
  • Reduce the time spent in demo
  • Reduce the sales cycle duration
  • Minimise the no shows on booked demos
  • Remove friction at every point in the sales process so no more ghosting
  • Clean the sales pipeline so you can start to forecast accurately on who will close and when
  • Churn should also take a nose dive too

So, how will you know if your sales team needs help to sell their software and SaaS solution?

Book Your SaaS Sales Training / Software Sales Training Course Today – Why Wait?

Everyday you’re letting sales leads turn bad is a day where further down the line – weeks or months depending on your sales cycle time – you are needlessly depressing your sales conversion rates…

And hat’s not all, you’re also…

  • Killing your ROI
  • Wasting money
  • Making your competitors rich
  • Increasing cost of client acquisition
  • Poor sales forecasting
  • Increasing churn rates
  • Poor quality sales pipeline and CRM (data-dump)

Plus – you’re ability to scale is non-existent, which is probably what your board want most out of their investment!?

How to Spot a SaaS / Software Sales Team in Need of Development

Not Nailing the Problem!

Not nailing the problem your tech solution fixes!

This is criminal and lethal.

Starting a sales pitch without total clarity on what problem you’re solving will mean a poor connection between you and the prospect…That’s the easiest, fastest and most common way to make a good lead turn bad.

Dodging the Tough Questions!

Not being prepared, brave enough or savvy enough to ask those tough questions!

Not having a proven sales methodology to use that preserves the sales lead whilst you’re scoping out their critical success factors.

Trust me – this is a game changer – and your competitors won’t be doing this. It’s a direct and winning strategy!

Without this element and the discipline to execute it, then two things will happen, and neither of them will be good for you.

  • Firstly, the prospect can disengage and dodge your attempt to build a meaningful set of reasons why s/he should look at your product
  • Secondly, even if you did get the prospect on a demo, the seller would be hard pressed to get any traction because they haven’t assesses impact, the cost of doing nothing or the legacy problems…I

Either way, it’s not a win, it’s a good lead turned bad! But now you’ve put in a heap of work!

The Long and Boring Road!

The seller takes the prospect on the whole harbour cruise – showcasing the ins and outs of every single feature – yawn-fest!

And what a waste of an opportunity.

No-one wants to sit through the whole pitch.

They just want to know what’s in it for them.

Nothing else!

But, as you didn’t ask the tough questions – you’re either forced to give a pedestrian pitch (which annoys buyers and wastes everyone’s time) or, by habit, you just go through the same old pitch because that’s what you’ve always done!

Either way – it’s the fastest way to create bored and confused, angry and disengaged prospects….ouch!

Another good lead turned bad!

Not Reading the Room!

Being precious about the decision maker – this one is the easiest one to fix and should be Sales 101 but sadly isn’t!

Everyone wants to talk to the decision maker – and that’s fine…but rarely are SaaS or software purchases one person decisions!

And if you treat them like they are then – good lead turns bad really quickly!

Instead get into the whole buying cycle and the key players, and supporting caste.

These conversations with influencers, users, referrers, power-owners, champions and blockers can really improve the impact and quality of exchange with the decision maker – when the time is right.

Yet, surprisingly, so few sales people do this background stuff, l

Stakeholder management, stakeholder engagement and building a cohort of raving fans is a must – and often missed out by sales people dialling and smiling but not really engaging with the process…

That makes good leads turn bad – but in this case you’ll likely not realise until you start getting ghosted and have done all the hard work!

Thinking Price is the Deciding Factor So Ignoring the Value Proposition

Do you think everything is about the price?

It really isn’t!

Price is only a factor if what you sell is identical to what your competitor is selling.

That’s the only time price alone can be the deciding factor….and even then you have relationship building on your side.

Instead – focus on selling the value, and that will change very time with evert different lead and prospect. Selling the value is a big topic – including selling the value across risk, guarantees, impact on the team, resource allocation, stress (!!), competitive advantage.

It’s a big topic, fascinating, engaging for the buyer and a game changer if you’re in a competitive environment.

Join us and you’ll easy make this transition to high performance selling with your prospects. and start to explore their needs through a lens that others wouldn’t dare to.

Putting the Sales Person at the Heart of the Sales Training Course | The Complex Role of Sales People Selling Software, SaaS or Cloud Products and Services

The role of the sales person in these industries is critical and complex…nothing happens until the seller makes that conversion…and if takes a lot of work to make that cold outreach and nurture it through to an order.

As a sales person in a SaaS/Software world the stakes are high…and skill sets requirements even higher

  • They need to be technical enough to gain trust.
  • Commercially savvy to spot opportunities.
  • Communicative enough to build a connection that allows them to sell their solutions in a way  prospects want to buy.
  • Be sales-y enough to get the job done, but consultative enough so the prospect doesn’t even realise they are being sold to!

Mix that in with a:

  • Typically educated and savvy buyer group.
  • Big focus on being budget conscious
  • Competitive market space
  • Oodles of information and insight available at the click of a mouse,
  • Vocal users groups
  • Lots of competition / substitute products and solutions
  • Risk aversion / fear of making the wrong investment no matter how good the ROI looks on paper

Considering all this, it’s easy to see why some deals stall, get undercut, disappear totally or simply get swamped in ‘too much information’ and ‘decision paralysis’

In Summary, our SaaS Sales Training and Software Sales Training Courses

Have removed challenges like…

  • Booking SaaS demos that convert!
  • Super efficient, value-based sales qualification – this saves days of selling time and boosts efficiency no-end
  • Getting prospects to show up to SaaS demos
  • Booking sales demos that have value and impact with the prospect
  • Building relevant business cases for the prospect to engage with early on in the sales cycle
  • Building value based selling into highly functional (often technical) using consultative selling
  • Dealing with pricing changes and challenges, issues or mental blocks in the sales team
  • Building no-brainer sales pitches
  • Dealing with pricing based on usage challenges
  • Prospects ghosting you half way through the sales process
  • Deals getting verbal sign off but falling at the final stages
  • Reducing churn by selling smarter
  • Building value based sales solutions to directly out sell the competition
  • Engaging non-tech users in a tech based product
  • Bringing together the broader buying group of influencers, users, finance, procurement and anyone else who may be involved.
  • Dealing with evolving pricing models from contract plus service and maintenance to straight subscription sell, to token, pay as you go, credit based usage….mindbogglingly complicated to sell a combination of these, more so when a company is swapping from one to another
  • Building a high value sales pipeline that converts with predictability and scale-ability

Every single client is different.

Every single product/service is different.

Yet the problems they suffer around creating sales opportunities that close have a lot in common.
