Close like the Pros: Replace Worn-out Tactics with the Powerful Strategy of Interactive Selling

Overview

In the ever-quickening pace of society, the pressures today on salespeople and their prospects for their precious time are nearly insufferable. In a misguided effort to save their prospects' time, salespeople take on more of the work, shoulder more of the burden, and turn proposals around with lightning speed. That's hands-off selling-where the salesperson does all of their work first, handing off the proposal to the buyer as if it were a baton...

Overview

In the ever-quickening pace of society, the pressures today on salespeople and their prospects for their precious time are nearly insufferable. In a misguided effort to save their prospects' time, salespeople take on more of the work, shoulder more of the burden, and turn proposals around with lightning speed. That's hands-off selling-where the salesperson does all of their work first, handing off the proposal to the buyer as if it were a baton in a relay race.

It's time to make a change. Selling and buying become more efficient, productive, and successful when they are merged into a single process-interactive selling.

Interactive selling is based on the reality that today's complex sales always involve a great deal of back and forth, give and take, questions and answers, modifying and tweaking. Interactive selling is how the pros close big deals, and it's a process anyone can learn.

Close Like the Pros:
• Is targeted at anyone who has a Big Idea to sell in the workplace.
• Gives salespeople the tools they need to get their prospects actively involved in crafting a proposal they are eager to buy.
• Shows salespeople how to invest more time with prospects likely to buy and less with those who aren't.
• Is not another re-hash of sales basics-the basics in this book are the ones missing from every other one.
