Salespeople who read this book and put its wisdom to work will succeed at acquiring more opportunities as they learn to reach first base more easily. They will excel at creating opportunities with prospects who are not interested by hitting for The Cycle. They will sell at higher margins by using the Rule of Ratios. Their closing percentages will improve dramatically as they implement the simple Inoffensive Close. Salespeople selling commodities, struggling to differentiate themselves, will love Commodity Busters and every salesperson will be able to shorten their sell cycle by Taking a Lead. Quite simply, Baseline Selling introduces a way for salespeople to visualize and touch all the bases without over-complicating the process. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
