“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.
