Episode 70: Yes, We Can Ensure Buyers Choose Us Before We Even Meet!

In this episode of the Stronger Sales Team podcast, Ben explores the notion of finalising deals prior to even having a face-to-face interaction with a Customer.  

With some profound changes in consumer behaviour brought about by the post-COVID era, it's so important for sales teams to be creating and maximising every interaction. Ben unpacks some of his proven strategies and tools that can help you win over buyers early in the process, leveraging technology and strategic communication. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Post-COVID era has doubled the number of decision-makers and required touch points, emphasising the need for pre-meeting engagement.
  • Move needs analysis to the first point of contact to align content and engagement strategies accordingly.
  • Personalised video messages to introduce salespeople and summarise client needs can pre-build relationships.
  • DIY tools or interactive case studies can enable potential clients to engage deeply with the product/service early on.
  • Utilise social media and connect across various decision-makers within a target client’s organisation to build familiarity and trust.
