What if a Prospect is Talking with Other Editors?
Manage episode 354904173 series 2811833
Has this ever happened to you?
You're on a sales call and everything is going very well, and then you discover that your prospective client is interviewing multiple editors. If this hasn't happened to you yet, it very likely will at some point. And if you've never considered it as a possibility, it could come as a shock.
When that happens, you could find yourself thinking things like, "Should I just end the call now?" Or, "Should I share lower rates than usual so that I'm seen as more competitive?"
We aren't here to tell you how you should feel or what you should do, but if we take the time to think this through together, you can come up with a strategy and position that will give you confidence.
