I promised to give you some scientific evidence that M2M sales is more effective than “consultative selling.” Here it is. When in comes to selling, most of what passes as “science” is speculation and anecdotes. However, there is one exception: The HR Chally Group ’s research. Over the past 14 years, Chally has interviewed decision-makers at thousands of B2B customers, asking them to identify and characterize the sales professionals and organizations that are doing exceptional jobs. During these discussions, customers have surfaced some 7,200 sales forces as examples of successful (and not so ...

The Science of Selling - Rules versus Data
Regular readers know that I like to talk about the science of selling. I don't mean the science of the sales process, strategy and tactics, as much as the science of research, data and proof. There is a science to selling but a more appropriate name for it would be the rules of selling. In Baseball, the rules dictate what you do, when you do it and how it should be done. In Selling, the rules accomplish the same thing. The true science in selling is the research and data that explain performance. In Baseball, a good or bad year, by a team or player, is not explained so much by whether the rules were followed - they probably ... market research, surveys and trends
The Science of Selling as an Art Form : Cincom CEO Thomas Nies
All decision making processes are both rational and emotional. These two processes are  sometimes hard to separate but they are both at work, especially in sales cycle. Selling becomes an art form when a seller tries to incorporate logic, which will appeal to the rational side of the decision, and present images, appealing to the emotional aspect, in an effective way. To aid this art, Cincom uses the ACE Method to help ourselves go through the discovery process in an orderly, organized way. All strategic processes are based on information. The better the information the better can become the strategic thought which guides and ... market research, surveys and trends

Online Sales Lose Steam - New York Times
Since the inception of the Web, online commerce has enjoyed hypergrowth, with annual sales increasing more than 25 percent over all, and far more rapidly in many categories.

Growth in online sales has also dropped dramatically in diverse categories like health and beauty products, computer peripherals and pet supplies. Analysts say it is a turning point and growth will continue to slow through the decade.

Wilson Group - Newsletter and Hot Trends - Newsletter
When Jeff Bezos decided to take advantage of the Internet's rapid growth, he recognized that he needed to create a business unlike any that existed off line. So he created a bookstore with 3 million titles. His business, Amazon.com, is the most successful example of electronic commerce yet, having grown from sales of $511,000 in 1995 to $147.8 million in 1997. Revenues in the first quarter of 1998 were $87.4 million - a 446% increase over the previous year. At age 33, Bezos has a net worth of $12 billion, but, reflecting the intense competition and low margins of the book retailing business, the culture at Amazon is ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

 Best-selling author Judith Warner was the recent guest of National Institute of Mental Health Director Tom Insel on the Bethesda campus.

Imagine you are seated at a conference table, pitching a new idea to the boss. She listens, pauses thoughtfully, and glances out the window. "No," she says. "I am afraid we can't do that." Now imagine you are seated at the same table facing the same person and making exactly the same proposal. Your boss sits there, pauses thoughtfully, and locks eyes with you for just a fraction of a second before gazing out of the same window. "OK," she says. "Let's give it a try." What is the difference between these two moments? What did you do right the second time that changed the outcome? ...

Why are sociology, psychology and graphic design fundamental areas ...
sociology because it's the study of how humans interact with each other, animals, corporations, and even inanimate objects. (so how people interpret/interact with their environment) psychology because it would help to figure out what people want, why they want it, how they would obtain it, etc. psychology is the study of the human mind, so understanding how it works would help. and graphic design because it helps to create business cards/signs/logos/etc that appeal to the senses. a poorly designed label will not get good attention.

Sales & Sales Management: RESPONSE: some test questions, answer c ...
I can answer questions around the art and science of selling particularly as it pertains to selling value as opposed to feature functionality. My background is in highly complex sales environments from target client acquisition, presenting a clearly defined and well thought out message to understanding the intricacies of dealing with a multilayered environment to negotiation of the contract. Experience I have been personally selling, mentoring and managing large sales teams as well as start up technology companies for over 20 years. I have closed deals which range in size from $100,000 to over $15,000,000. Education/Credentials
