The New Solution Selling

In the last week, two different clients asked us for benchmarks on sales pipelines. Specifically, they wanted to know what a “good” sales pipeline coverage ratio should be. That is a question we hear often, and like all good consultants, we generally answer with the rather unhelpful response: “It all depends.” First, the commonly held “rule of thumb” is that a ratio of the total gross value of all opportunities in a sales pipeline should be at least three times the total weighted value of opportunities, where the weighted value is calculated as a percentage probability of closing for each ...
Some of these techniques have been embedded in products, services and software to ease the burden on users and administrators. No one technique is a complete solution to the spam problem, and each has trade-offs between incorrectly rejecting legitimate e-mail vs. not rejecting all spam, and the associated costs in time and effort. Anti-spam techniques can be broken into four broad categories: those that require actions by individuals, those that can be automated by e-mail administrators, those that can be automated by e-mail senders and those employed by researchers and law enforcement officials.
Solution Selling is Dead. | Sales Machine | BNET
That being said, I observe that very few companies actually follow the system that Mike lays out in that book. Instead, they simply trick out their “products” as “solutions” and pretend that they’re doing something different. (Note to top management: if you want the benefit of new ideas in a book, read more than just the title.) The reason that “solution selling” is honored more in the breach than the observances lies, at least in part, with the word itself: “solution.” First of all, the term sets the wrong tone. A “solution” is supposed to solve a customer ... market research, surveys and trends

Perhaps the most overused phrase in the sales profession is “value proposition”. While most salespeople agree that selling value is good, and that being able to express that value to customers is also good, few are truly masters at being able to do so effectively. In fact, CSO Insights recently found that 45 percent of sales executives believe that their salespeople need improvement in their ability to sell value and avoid discounting.  Only 15 percent believe that their sales teams exceed expectations in selling value.

New York Times Should Charge for News, Google Too: Janet Guyon
July 4 (Bloomberg) -- Hal Varian, the chief economist at Google Inc., spends a lot of time talking about the economic state of the news business, partly at the behest of the Federal Trade Commission, which wants to know how free online access has contributed to the financial difficulties of dozens of newspapers such as the Rocky Mountain News, Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. That Google has anything constructive to say may seem counterintuitive given that many folks who run large news organizations -- News Corp.’s Rupert Murdoch, for instance -- say that Google and its search engine are the principal cause of the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Orioles: Matusz is dealing
Brian Matusz is displaying tremendous command in today's series finale against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. He just struck out David Ortiz for the second time in the game on a perfect fastball right on the low-outside corner. He got into some trouble in the bottom of the fourth when Adrian Beltre golfed an ankle-high pitch off the Green Monster, but worked out of trouble by striking out Orioles-killer J.D. Drew and getting Bill Hall on a lineout to center. So far, Matusz has given up two hits and struck out six. Red Sox right-hander John Lackey also has been dealing, but he got into a jam in the top of the fourth and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How do I get potential clients hooked? | Ask MetaFilter
I'm a software development consultant and am getting frustrated at the number of potential clients slipping through my fingers. I get a good number of interested leads through my website or through referrals (thanks guys) but the ratio of potential clients to paying clients is too low. What might I be doing wrong and how can I help gain these clients? The sequence generally goes like this: I get an email from a lead introducing themselves and the problem they want help with and asking about my availability. I email back and explain that I am available, and that the project sounds interesting and would love to talk more with ...
