Joining me on this episode of Accelerate! is my guest Craig Rosenberg. Craig is Co-founder and Chief Analyst at TOPO, a sales research and advisory firm. He’s also the founder of the Funnelholic blog. Among the many topics that Craig and I discuss are the current state of the sales process; how to build a sales process that supports the needs of you, the seller, and the buyer; how to relate and engage with your customer throughout their buying journey and the value of human selling vs automation.

 

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

[1:40] The Mouse that Roared, by Leonard Wibberley, is an inspiration to small enterprises. (And one of my favorite books and movie.)

[2:56] Craig started teaching, and coaching water polo, straight out of college. All his friends were happy working at Oracle or Sun; his teacher colleagues were unhappy. So, he tried sales.

[9:05] What is the purpose of creating methodology for a step-by-step sales process?

[11:03] When the process is in place, what steps come next?

[14:09] Between Andy’s and Craig’s observations, what is it that 68-to-72% of companies do not have?

[18:28] What are exit criteria, and when should they be applied?

[20:36] Why you can’t just copy the sales process from a successful company like Salesforce.

[22:30] Is it easy for an established and successful sales rep to transfer from one sales environment and process, to another?

[25:54] What are uniquely human sales skills?

[27:21] How can we engage more and better with our prospects? Is there an app for that?

[32:34] What kind of help does a prospect really want, on their buying journey?
