Increase the chance of a successful close with a free tool to help you effectively qualify any opportunity in your sales process.
Clearly Defining the Opportunity
Defining an opportunity can only be done through communication with the prospect company, as in-depth as possible. It may be possible with the initial person who contacted you in the first place, or gaining a clear opportunity definition may require talking to others within the company who are closer to the issue or issues requiring a solution.
Oftentimes it happens that a particular event has occurred which compelled the company to seek out a solution. For example a database may have finally proven itself too inflexible or unstable, and the company is going to be in serious trouble if that database is not quickly replaced. In such an instance you want to discover some negatives: what are the consequences of not following through on finding and implementing a viable solution? What might be the losses of not taking action?
Once you have researched the above two points, then take a detailed look at how well your product or service fits in. This is the basic key of sales account management, and will be the crux of your sales pitch all the way along the sales cycle.
