The Sales Opportunity Canvas enables startup CEOs, sales managers, and sales professionals to identify key strengths and gaps in their sales process with individual customers. Users identify the people and develop the process required to move a prospect to a paying customers.

Beginning with Customer Needs, the "People" section of the Sales Opportunity Canvas focuses on Buyer Types, Value Statements, and Sales Resistance the user can expect to encounter. The process section of the Sales Opportunity Canvas focuses on the Stages of the Sale, Key Milestones, and Sales Mapping.

After identifying the people and developing the sales process, users apply this learning to creating an Implementation Plan and Work Agreement collaboratively with their customers to insure a successful, long-term customer relationship.

The Sales Opportunity Canvas includes the developing of the 1:1:1:1:1:1 Framework for Sales Mapping and Implementation Planning.

Presented by SalesQualia Founder Scott Sambucci at PARISOMA Workspace in San Francisco, CA on August 28, 2013. The Sales Opportunity Canvas will soon be available for purchase, and is developed specifically for startup CEOs, Sales Managers, and Sales Professionals.
