Sales Differentiation: 19 Powerful Strategies to Win More Deals at the Prices You Want
To win deals at the prices you want, the needed strategy is differentiation. Most executives think marketing is the sole source of differentiation, but sales differentiation presents an untapped opportunity to create meaningful value and stand out from the competition.
Sales Differentiation presents nineteen easy-to-implement concepts to help salespeople win deals while protecting margin. These concepts are applicable to any salesperson in any industry and are based on the foundation that how you sell, not just what you sell, differentiates you.
The book's "what you sell" section helps salespeople and executives identify what their true differentiators are, determine the right circumstances to share them, and develop a strategy to position them in a compelling way with buyers.
In every stage of the seller-buyer interaction, opportunities exist for differentiation in how you sell, such as how to creatively get in the door with buyers who say they are happy, shape buyer decision criteria aligned with your differentiators, turn a buyer's request for references into a way to stand out from the competition, and much more!
Mediocre salespeople say what they sell is the best. Top salespeople position different and lead their clients to say best without them ever uttering the word.
"Lee Salz says it's not just what you sell, but how you sell it. His nineteen sales differentiation strategies are a surefire way to drive profitable sales."
--Harvey Mackay, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
"I find many salespeople forget that they have an opportunity to stand out from the competition in the way they sell, so instead they fight to win sales on price. Lee's book will help ensure that doesn't happen to you."
--Brandon Steiner, CEO and founder of Steiner Sports
"Lee Salz's sales differentiation strategies are just what you need to stand out in a crowded market, create more meaningful conversations, and close more deals at the prices you want."

--Verne Harnish, founder of Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) and author of Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0)
