  • The Future of Sales = Sales professionals stop SELLING and start SERVING their buyers; stop SELLING and start HELPING their buyers. We're already living in the Age of the Customer; no longer the Age of the Seller. #SellerBeware

  • Excellent points made by Anthony, Keenan and the others - liked to hear Jill (Konrath) talk about “sales people will create value in every interaction.”

    Value is not just about delivering new insights. It comes in many forms. Financial value. Value exchanged for time. Relationship value. Value in ideas. Value in information.

    The statement about value prompted me to think about how creating value is crucial when selling to senior executives - more on http://agocluytens.com/selling-to-the-c-suite-5-questions-to-ask-yourself-before-the-meeting/

  • Social Selling is in its infancy now, and I see that gaining momentum and really being a game changer.

    The best sellers in 10 years will do an amazing job of not only staying connected with their customers and prospects, but being completely in tune to their needs and ahead of the curve in anticipating what they need next.
