Sales Excellence implemented
Product-focused selling is dead, solution selling is dying, and web-based selling is on the rise. The customer is now (almost) as well informed about your offering as you are, and also more demanding than ever before.
This book is primarily intended for senior executives in sales such as CEOs and Sales Directors, and also for more operational roles such as regional & local Sales Management. We aim to provide insights, models, practical examples, motivation and guidance for anyone who needs to implement a value based approach.
More and more companies are deciding to exploit the potential of digitalization while also maintaining perceived value for their customers, thus allowing the companies to retain or increase prices and margins on selected parts of their business. This is how value based selling fits in with that strategy.
