Close Larger Deals Faster with Sales Negotiation Skills Training
Sales professionals today must work harder than ever to reach the final stage in pursuing a sale: the negotiation. Therefore, the urge to close can overwhelm other considerations – namely, price.
In the moment, many sellers concede to pricing pressure, rather than explore the customer’s underlying needs to protect the value of the sale.
To protect the value of the sale, professionals must build skills that enable them to convert demands into needs.
Demands are inflexible. Needs can be addressed in ways that protect pricing.
Training sales professionals to take a consultative approach to negotiations helps them control outcomes by connecting the value of the offering to the customer’s business needs.
