Sales Account Strategy - 3-day course in influencing the decision-making process
This Sales Account Strategy course will help you maximise major sales opportunities by focusing on the journey the customer takes before arriving at a major decision.
Based of years of field research, Huthwaite International has designed this programme with a solid understanding of what makes customers make major purchasing decisions, as well as how successful salespeople influence that decision-making process.
Combining trainer inputs with real case work and a competitive simulation, the 3-day programme helps delegates build the essential skills to:
- Create better access to decision-makers and better present their value proposition
- Understand and cater to the psychology of customer needs
- Proactively strengthen their position against the competition
- More effectively navigate the DMU
- Present their progress in the opportunity with a clearer next steps and goals
- Pre-handle and/or manage late-cycle concerns
Together these skills will allow you to produce a significant increase in the sales revenue and profitability achieved from major accounts.
Suitability - Who should attend?
This course is highly appropriate for sales managers, account managers, sales executives and any other specialists tasked with the management of long-cycle sales involving multiple influencers/decision-makers, strong competitive activity and a perceived risk for the customer of making a wrong decision.
