Bye-Bye Solution Selling Webinar by Adam Metz

Bye-Bye Solution Selling Webinar by Adam Metz

Overview

While Solution Selling was effective and popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s, in the rise of social media, the effectiveness of this method has waned. Customers who used to be open to answering dozens of questions in a meeting are no longer open to it. Customers are also approaching buyers far later in the sale cycle – when they’re 80% of the way to a deal, rather than 20%, like in the “old days.” In this webinar you’ll learn new methods of selling that are easier on the buyer and seller, and result in more closed deals, and happier customers.

Key Takeaways

In this webinar, Adam Metz and Michelle Zatlyn will share insights on what sales professionals can count on being the hottest topics, most sought after strategies and key tactics in 2014. Highlights will include the following:

  • What is Insight Selling?
  • Why are sales professionals abandoning Solution Selling?
  • Why do buyers dislike Solution Selling?
  • What alternatives do sellers have to Solution Selling?
