Several challenges have emerged in B2B sales.

1. Selling environment has become increasingly complex.
2. Buyers are organising cross-departments to decrease the cost of ownership and take more control over the buying process.

Instead of selling to a person or two, B2B companies have to sell to buyers who are more informed than ever.

Because of the complexity of their products, B2B companies need to be innovative in how they demonstrate value and should do it in a way which makes it easy for clients to sell forward to other internal stakeholders.

Due to the falling costs of starting a company and an increasing variety of funding opportunities, competition has also become very high. Therefore, even keep your existing customer base has become a challenge.

A solution to this can be Dealstorming, “the act of bringing together multiple disciplines to solve a significant sales challenge through collaboration and shared work with a focus on rapid problem solving”.

Dealstorming focuses on diversity—getting salespeople to collaborate with people from other departments in order to boost creativity.

We met with best-selling author Tim Sanders to discuss his take on how to increase B2B sales. Here are 10 tips he shared about how creativity can unlock the potential of your salesteam and close more challenging B2B deals.
