Like the rest of the business world, the sales landscape has changed. Gone are the days of the hardcore, "always be closing" approach. Potential customers (all of us) have access to more information about products than ever before. We're looking for sales professionals who will take the time to listen to our needs, and craft a customized solution to our problem. That's what "Dealstorming" is all about.
Tim reaches way back to his roots as a sales guy with Audionet (founded by Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner) to introduce a simple concept, "Don't go down alone." Build a team around you to help analyze the needs of your customers to provide more value in your sales solutions. Dealstorming is a process that Tim has developed and refined over the past 15+ years "to organize and lead a cross-functional team to work together to solve a significant sales challenge through highly structured meetings and project work."
This is nuts and bolts stuff interjected with enough anecdotal material to keep you engaged. Tim is writing about multi-million dollar deals, but the conceptual thinking is valuable for any sales transaction. No matter what product or service we offer, we're all in sales. We can all benefit from collaboration. "Dealstorming" provides you with a blueprint to help you build an effective team to meet your customers' needs.
Great research. Innovative thinking. Backed by experience. Well worth the price of admission.
In today’s B2B world, client organizations face complex challenges for which they seek help. When they reach out to selling organizations, what they invariably get back are products and services divided into little pieces that line up with their own organizational siloes. Not helpful to the client and not effective to closing a deal.
What Tim Sanders has created in Dealstorming is a new way for sales leaders and salespeople to look past your organization’s divisional lines. Sanders breaks dealstorming into a process, which will allow you to create the kind of collaboration that feels good, like you’re adding the sort of value you knew you were capable of when you joined your company. Even better, using the dealstorming process will empower you to give clients what they need and enable you and your colleagues to close bigger deals.
Tim makes the journey fun, with his conversational writing style and use of real stories from his own selling and dealstorming experience. Great read, and an invaluable and timely tool. I highly recommend this book.
It all started with Love is the Killer App where I learn how to build my brand by being a genuinely valuable and trust resource.
Now I'm learning how to make deals by collaberation.
This book does not rely on old techniques, it truly is a book written for today's sales environment.
