Sales Process

Cal Thomas joined us to reveal the secrets of controlling sales conversations with questions.

Mike Montague interviews Erik Meier on How to Succeed at Advanced Questioning Strategies.

Here are three simple things you can do, starting today, that will immediately upgrade your 30-second commercial.

1. Don’t act like a salesperson – Put aside your own needs so you can focus on the prospect and their needs.
2. Don’t answer questions – Not until you know the “why” behind the question.
3. Don’t tell - Listen with curiosity, empathy, and an honest willingness to get to know the other person.
4. Don’t assume – Validate by asking a qualifying question.

You have the right to fail. No need for excuses for attempts and failures, you have the right to them. Go for it! Some you win, some you fail. Success = Failure + Persistence.

Sandler is excited to announce our commitment to further champion the next evolution of sales.

Does it bother you when prospects treat your specialized products and services like a commodity? Are you tired of having to discount deals to win competitive situations?

My message for sales professionals is simple: You’re a consultant, so behave like one. That means asking the right questions… then asking more questions … and even more questions …. until you fully understand what the buyer needs to be able to close the gap between where they are and where they want to be.
