A Word About Sustainable Value
The more a sales force is able to isolate sustainable value for each sale, the more likely the deals will close. It’s a powerful factor in sales force effectiveness. Today’s sales forces are incorporating the practices of insight selling—learning about prospects, their particular issues, and how products and services will benefit them.
A question any salesperson can ask is: What sustainable value will my product bring to my prospect? The answer to that question should be fairly detailed for each prospect. The more ways a product benefits a client, the more sustainable value it has. You will find that demonstrating long-term sustainable value during your sales process may be the primary selling point of your product or service.
In B2B sales, your product or service must demonstrate sustainable value. If you are, for example, selling a software product that greatly benefits its users, those users will be better employees at their companies, the company itself will be better performing, and will, in the end, have a positive impact on the overall economy. The examples of sustainable value are endless.
