When things don’t go well on a sales call, you probably ask yourself, “Why did I lose that sale?” . . . and then move on.

But the question remains: Why did you lose that sale? Learning the answer can mean the difference between landing and losing the next sale.

  • Design a comprehensive “debrief” questionnaire
  • Obtain more candid and accurate feedback from prospects
  • Identify important patterns in your techniques
  • Use what works and improve what doesn’t to close more sales than ever

Filled with sample dialogs you can use with prospects, From a Good Sales Call to a Great Sales Call is neatly organized into eight easy-to-follow steps that take you through the whole process:

Step 1. Discover the Benefits of Successfully Debriefing with Prospects

Step 2. Understand the Postdecision Mind-Set of the Prospect

Step 3. Recognize How Salespeople Can Inhibit the Feedback Process

Step 4. Design a Prospect Debrief Questionnaire

Step 5. Utilize Proven Interviewing Techniques for Conducting Debrief Calls

Step 6. Identify and Analyze Your Win/Loss Trends

Step 7. Benchmark Your Feedback

Step 8. Implement the Right Techniques to Increase Your Close Rate

    Sample too short

    I do not understand why publishers offer "samples" of a Nook book only to have the sample cover the table of contents, forward, and introduction. I would have probably bought this book if I could have at least seen the first chapter.

    I rated a 3 (average) because I didn't want to skew the ratings.

    Boo to the publisher, though.
