Channel sales pros who want to rack up big numbers this year need to understand what “listening” really is, and how getting better at it can increase conversions. In today’s selling world, your customers are educated — most are almost through the buyer’s journey before they even engage with your team. However, few channel sales pros have adapted to the new way buyers buy.
News flash: The selling conversation is more about the buyer than it is about your services or your supplier’s products. In this webinar featuring noted sales expert Kathryn Rose and brought to you by Star2Star, attendees will discover:
John Roth, senior vice president of sales operations at Star2Star, joined the company in 2009, after a long stint at Avaya, where he was responsible for 10 sales offices, selling call center applications and managing large customer opportunities.
