Patrick reveals why traditional thoughts into a buyer’s preference for a product is based on false research and how the Persuasion Code can be used by anyone to increase revenue if they understand the basic principles.  For instance:

  • There is solid research, clinical research, not hunches or opinions behind the current book's recommendations for sales and marketing tactics that win
  • Selling isn't about pushing features and benefits, it's about asking questions to diagnose the prospect's problems
  • There are only three stages of selling: Diagnosis, Selling and educating
    • Educating helps the competitor as much as you the salesperson
    • Selling without diagnosis is the surest way to fail
    • Diagnosis should take up 80% of the discussion with the prospect
  • Diagnosis of the pain is the first step in the sales process, without you will lsoe more than you win

2019502-crm-tweet-priemer.jpg

“If your salesperson barfs up value based pablum without listening to the prospect, he or she will lose the sale.”

David Priemer

 “Value,” David Priemer of Cerebral Selling says, “transcends ROI.” Regardless of the opinions of your product manager, company president or sales manager, the value your product or service will mean something different to each prospect. If your salesperson barfs up value based pablum without listening to the prospect, he or she will lose the sale.  The prospect, Petersen and Priemer agreed, is the only one who can define value for your product.

In this program, Priemer and host Paul Petersen further discuss how to best address the problem of under-performing sales reps and sales managers who lack coaching skills.

About David Priemer

David Priemer is widely recognized as a thought leader in the area of sales and sales leadership and has been published in the Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review as well as Forbes, Entrepreneur, Barron's, and Inc. magazines.
