That won't happen for you when you read this book. It's delightfully refreshing--packed with provocative ideas you haven't encountered elsewhere. My guess is you'll be eager to try them.
In my brief video review, I spotlight three chapters that impressed me the most. Making that selection was difficult, because every chapter provides valuable tips and strategies.
I encourage you to read this book and apply the authors' recommendations. Before long, you will enjoy selling more, your clients will respond to you more favorably, and you're very likely to increase your percentage of closings.
So my advice to save some time: read the chapter titles, the first and last paragraphs, and anything that is bullet-pointed. That is all you need. And yet, at the end of this book, I am yet another customer that the authors "sold"...touche.
Your Old Brain views the simple approach and stories as coming from much more intelligent people - park the jargon
In the Hero story, your job is to make the client the Hero
The first and last ten minutes of a presentation are gold - do not waste it by telling the client about your self.
Tie approaches to the techiques taught in the The Challenger Sale, You need to challenge the prospects status quo - to prevent the do nothing response.
You are presenting stories and conversations not a pitch (again the buy is emotional first than logical)
Terrific book. Needs to be in the kit of high performance salespeople. Perfect for a 4 hour plane ride.
If you work at a large company, buy the book and take advantage of their services. They will help you create the right story, develop the right tools for your sales force, and then train your sales people to deliver your story. You'll win deals from your competitors and you'll win deals that are now simply doing nothing because the buyers can't see a distinction between the choices and so remains stuck in the status quo.
