Then reverse osmosis technology advanced to the point where it become cost-effective for household use.
  • 4. SELLING VALUE, NOT COST A few example of REVERSE OSMOSIS better:-  The novelty of innovative technology was a distinct advantage after demonstrated new method for certain water conditions  Longer term benefits due to more attractive life-cycle costs were emphasized in the second phase of selling.  The third phase of selling offered a choice of technologies – other performance characteristics.  Reverse osmosis sales improved considerably when positive health benefits were cited with the principal competing technology.  In other words, the other technology just couldn’t deliver this benefit.
  • 5. THE IMPORTANCE OF MARKET SHARE “Marketing must invent complete products and drive them to commanding positions in defensible market segments” Davidow. In their study, state Companies with greater than a 30 percent market share almost always were profitable and conversely, those with less than a 15 percent share almost always lost money. Meaning that we don’t believe that rule is inviolable, but we agree that if our market share doesn’t fall into the greater than 15 percent level, there had better be a very, very good reason to pursue that market.
  • 6. MARKETING TOOLS Salespeople have many techniques to keep in front of a customer. People wants a clear explanation of What We Do, Who We Are, Where We Are, What We Sell, How Much It Cost, and How to Get in Touch With Us… Generally they do a lot of homework before they even contemplate buying innovative products.  Researching technical journals  Attending trade shows  Listening to technical presentations at seminars and professional society meetings.

  • 10. TECHNOLOGY QUOTAS AND RETENTIONREQUIREMENTS ARE A MUST! Technology quotas and retention requirements provide for explicit goals to be at predetermined times for license agreements to remain force. If the license does not meet a goals, they are not retained and the license agreement is terminated. In the event that a licensee runs into bad luck or bad timing, efforts should be made to work with them to get things back on track by lending our technical, financial and marketing skills. All team members must behave professionally. Word of brutal treatment of licensees gets around.
