Anthony Iannarino: the Most Important 6 Word Question a Sales Rep Can Ask



Anthony Iannarino, author, speaker and well-known sales leader discusses his contrary opinion of the buying process in B2B. He says prospects don’t already know about the product and salespeople aren’t unnecessary as some will have us believe. In this interview with the host Paul Petersen he says:

  1. It isn’t true the prospect knows everything, this is misleading.
  2. Inexperienced sales qualifiers subtract value in the buyers mind rather than give value.
  3. Of the four values a sales person gives the prospects, only one is a real value add to the prospect.
  4. Why the first contract with a prospect has to be a value in creating a compelling partnership
  5. Why literature is useless
  6. He discusses the,  most important, six word question a sales person can ask.

Anthony also discusses his upcoming book “Eat Their Lunch” which will be released November 6, 2018.  The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition, from the author of The Only Sales Guide You'll Ever Need and The Lost Art of Closing.

How to leverage digital marketing everyday




Digital Marketing has suffered in recent years from vanity metrics (likes, followers, etc.) and some channels not living up to their hype. Marketers are returning to traditional branding - but that shouldn’t preclude digital. Digital enables faster research, testing, agility, and can ultimately be the baseline for every traditional effort. Tighter budgets and higher expectations simply don’t work. You can’t grow your business without growing your marketing and sales efforts. Deploying digital marketing effectively can mitigate some costs, but not enough to cut budgets. You should look at your marketing budget as a percent of revenue. A typical static company is spending ~10%, a high-growth company 20%. Some companies like Salesforce went all in and spent over 50% to dominate their market. Join Paul Petersen and his guest, Douglas Karr as they dive into the pressing issues of the struggles of SMB marketers.
