Sales Presentations: Focus on Dominant Buying Motives

The Brooks Group

The average sales presentation consists of 6-8 features or benefits. Is that good or bad? Well, when you consider that 24 hours after your presentation, 39% of your prospects remember only one of them, the answer should be very clear. And the fact that 49% of the time they remember something that you didn't bring up at all makes it even more obvious! Most of us are quite simply overwhelming our prospects with details about things they really aren't interested in!

39 Tips for Keeping the Sale on Track

The Brooks Group

Whether you're just getting started or you've been selling for years, it's important to remember sales don't just happen. They're the result of pursuing the right activities at the right time.

Stop Talking Your Way Out of the Sale

The Brooks Group

You're a professional salesperson - a value resource, a consultant to your prospect, not a product pusher or a data dumper. So - be PREPARED. But how? Start with the critical questions that every prospect wants answered when you show up for a sales call: Who are you? What do you want? Why are you here? Who do you represent?
