Editorial Reviews


"Keith Rosen challenges conventional wisdom about closing the sale by offering fresh, tactical selling principles that anyone can use to get better results while becoming more comfortable and confident in their selling efforts. Keith's unique, permission based approach to closing not only enhances the salesperson's chances for success, but also helps the prospect's decision making process without any pressure or manipulation. Readers learn a proven step-by-step approach for turning a 'pitch' focused sale into a 'ROI-driven' conversation that's virtually objection-proof. This book will give the reader a competitive edge, and it will bring back the joy of closing more sales faster than ever before."
ùGerhard Gschwandtner, Founder and Publisher, Selling Power

From AudioFile

Going beyond strategies and scripts, a veteran sales trainer and executive coach explains the internal conversations and attitudes one needs to make sales relationships genuine and productive. Rosen is an expert at explaining sales skills such as recognizing the flow of a sales conversation or speaking a language the customer is ready to hear. His points are announced at the beginning of each track (if not on the CDs or package), and each idea is illustrated with dialogues or case studies. Rick Plastina does fine work spelling out the conceptual and practical segments. He sounds less natural when heÕs handling dialogue or adding emotional emphasis. His trying too hard to improve perfectly good writing distracts from the wisdom in this well-organized lesson.

Closing the Sale is packed with solid information in a ready to use format. Keith writes in a great conversational style with stories that illustrate principles that are straight to the point. After reading this book I immediately added to my sales success and I believe others can have achieve the same results.

Grab the book, bring a long a highlighter and prepare to learn ways to win the inner and outer sales game.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in 2010 b/c I "did not fit" the Accounting opportunities in my area. At Job/Career Fairs all I seemed to find were employment in Sales or Collections. I always kept this book at the "front burner" never knowing if I would need it or not. I just got a job in Sales on 11.18.2011. Although my company's training is good, I am pleased that I purchased this book before I knew I needed it. Now I can review + compare my training notes to this book to better understand the terminology and processes to become more successfull (sp?). No one Plans to Fail, they Fail to Plan. Now I have a great tool to help me ramp-up to others who have been in Sales for years while I was not. Thanks to; the book arrived one day early. Jim
