Even the most competitive companies only close about 15 percent of the deals in their sales pipelines. That means that salespeople spend time with prospects who, 85 percent of the time, aren’t going to buy. Wouldn’t those salespeople rather spend more time pursuing prospects they knew they could close? Or spend time with their prospects where it matters most at an executive level? Readers who are ready for exceptional results for themselves and their companies need Selling to Zebras.
The Zebra way can help salespeople identify the perfect prospects for their companies–their Zebras–and develop a sales process that will help them close deals 90 percent of the time.
The Zebra method of selling will:
