    SALES & MARGINS: Show Prospects How You Can Make Them Money

  • By: Bill Lee

    Using referrals as evidence, get out of the pricing rat race by showing your prospects how they can make more money buying from you than they can earn buying from your competitors.

    Commodity salespeople frequently rely heavily upon price. That's why lumber and building material salespeople frequently earn such low margins. When salespeople can increase their company's value to their customers and prospects, they all of a sudden become less dependent upon price.
