Overview

An updated and revised version of the business classic Power Base Selling

Power Base Selling, originally published in 1990, left readers with an understanding of and language for gaining political advantage within accounts.

The New Power Base Selling offers an updated and more in-depth edition of the original classic with an empirically based breakthrough to significantly increasing sales performance. It explains how competitive selling is as much a matter of politics, customer value, and strategy as it is a management science.

  • Provide customers with value that advances their critical business initiatives
  • Effectively use LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and other social tools in a sales campaign
  • Increase customer satisfaction and competitive differentiation

Well researched and accurate portait of successful sellers' habits and strategy - great advice on how to emulate. I appreciate the positive, can-do tone. Book arrived three weeks ago and is still open on my desk. It's like a reference manual for winning. Worth the $ for Chapter 6 alone - already used the 30 minutes prep guide for generating insight for an executive meeting. It was awesome. Later bought e-book for portability - easy to check from phone. Downside - Very logical layout of information, but I couldn't help but to compare my own deals as I went along. Takes focused reading, but worth it. Would be great for a plane.
