???? Shifting to a Priority-Based Selling Strategy…

By Scott Sambucci | August 12, 2021

 

One of the biggest #sales mistakes most #startups make, especially startups selling enterprise solutions to Above-the-Line executives, is that they don’t focus on their prospect’s PRIORITIES.

This is such an important strategy, that I recorded a 20-minute training on this.

Here’s the link on the SalesQualia YouTube Channel:

???? Why is this shift so critical for startups?

❌ Most startups focus their messaging and pitches on their PRODUCT…

“Hi NAME – Our company has a blah-blah platform that does feature this and feature this… Would you like to see a demo?”

Ugh. Delete.

❌ Occasionally I’ll see messaging that’s PROBLEM–focused –

“Hi NAME – Even with a great sales team, there’s a good chance you’re hurting your growth if your blah-blah-blah is anything less than optimal…”

A little better, but even that isn’t nearly good enough if you want to sell to Above-the-Line.

???????????? Executives get paid the big bucks because their job is to lead their company’s strategic initiatives. ????????????

When they step in to the office every day, they’re focused on their PRIORITIES – not the day-to-day problems that crop up. They have people down the chain to handle the fires…

And they definitely don’t care about your product, even if it’s some new-fangled AI-based platform, uses Blockchain or automates some manual process…

It’s your job as a seller to know these priorities, and show how you can help those executives get their companies where they want to be.
