The information economy has neutralized the traditional value proposition of sales people. Sellers no longer have monopoly on information that they used to have before and are thus struggling to remain relevant. Most of the sales organizations sell, sound and look just the same. While working hard to prevent commoditization, they actually create it.
Customers, on the other hand, don't value the sellers' insights like before. This is resulting in challenges where the sellers are finding it increasingly difficult to differentiate themselves from the competition. They are pressed hard to deal with the price pressure, breaking into new accounts or simply getting a prospect.
Join expert speaker and bestseller author Richard Farrell, as he shares his winning strategies to leave behind the competition by 'selling differently' and prevent your product from becoming just another commodity. Learn how to truly differentiate yourself, not by 'what you sell' but by 'how you sell.'
This session will help you understand how to recognize, minimize and eliminate commoditization. You will learn how differentiation is created through your ability to ask the right questions and understand what you have learnt about the customer, rather than having the right answers and getting them to learn about you. If they don't value your insight or need your input or advice, then no differentiation in the world will matter.
Richard will also provide new ideas on how to sell in the information economy. You will learn how to position your offering based on how you solve problems as opposed to how you provide solutions. Get insights on how to better qualify opportunities and differentiate yourself from your competition based on the questions you ask you customer, not your self-serving, selling points.
