The Challenge

How can you close more deals?

The top performer difference.

Research from CSO Insights 2011 showed that only one out of six sales presentations had greater than a 50/50 chance of resulting in a sale. We feel many salespeople — even solid professionals — lose a sale for two common reasons:

  • Many sales presentations are lost before they are even given. Salespeople present to open the sales cycle rather than presenting to close.
  • The sales presentations are information rich and decision poor, often ending in “thanks a lot,” “we’ll think about it,” “Hey—could you leave us some of the PowerPoint slides?” Critically, no decision is made.

“Nowhere in the sales process do a few minutes of dialogue more quickly determine whether we continue or end our relationship than during the initial interaction.”
