In this Article Characteristics of High-Performance Sales OrganizationsConclusion Introduction How do you differentiate your products and services in a global economy where you need excellent product/service packages and competitive pricing just to be in the game? Product and service differentiation is short-lived and can be easily copied, and very few organizations enjoy the type of ‘Economies of Scale” where they can afford to compete on price alone. Today’s buyers are much better educated and, with the aid of the Internet, can easily identify numerous suppliers worldwide. These same buyers are also looking for value-added business relationships and vendor partnerships. This is why simple product/service solutions or features, advantages, and benefits selling systems are no longer enough to help you win and keep clients. To compete and win in today’s marketplace, you need a selling organization to identify solutions supporting your buyer’s business needs, requirements, and opportunities. This approach requires an organizational selling system and a sales team with advanced consultative selling skills.
