A Look Back At the 2017 Study Results
With more than 350 respondents, our findings revealed key takeaways for sellers. For example, we discovered that for many sellers, administrative duties consumed too much of their time, cutting into their productivity. Other common challenges arose from the need to sell effectively as a team while facing low-cost competitors. Other challenges included:
- Prospecting: Creating an effective strategy for targeting higher-quality leads
- Negotiations: Closing deals with higher prices without sacrificing mutually beneficial outcomes
Closing: Competing against low-cost providers while positioning differentiated value
- Productivity: Finding a better alignment between sales and marketing teams
- Value: Articulating the strength of a solution while competitors leverage new products
