You’ve got the perfect mix of products, services and solutions for
your current customers or clients and your prospects. You're
positioned to meet their ever-changing needs. You have achieved
significant competitive advantage. Now all that has to happen is to
make the sale.
Selling effectively begins with
selecting the right sales strategy. There are two commonly used
Selling. This strategy is most successfully used when
products and services are primarily commodities. The customer's
decision making criteria is often primarily cost driven. You
have a specific product that addresses a specific need and you go
out looking for prospects that have that specific need. The selling
process tends to be more marketing oriented than selling oriented.
The selling skills required include having strong product knowledge,
being able to sell the benefits and close the order.
Application/Solution Selling. Also
referred to as consultative selling. This approach to selling is
driven by a passion for building and maintaining close relationships
with select customers or clients. It starts by working
methodically at all levels of the organization to understand the
prospect's business objectives and identify their true needs. Based
on those needs, solutions are collaboratively developed presented. Decision making
criteria is based largely on your ability to address the prospect's
needs. It's less price sensitive and affords the opportunity for
value pricing models. The sales skills required to execute this
strategy successfully are much higher than for product selling. The
sales person has to gain a thorough knowledge of the prospect's
business and be able to relate at executive levels.
