In each broadcast, CONNECT! focuses on a hot topic for sellers. The topic of this week’s program, airing from 9:00-10:00 a.m. pacific time on September 22, is Value-Based Selling. Program Host Deb Calvert, president of People First Productivity Solutions, will interview Curry and bring in listeners’ questions.
Value-Based Selling is more than latest sales gimmick. During this broadcast, sales professionals will learn best practices for selling on value. According to Curry, changing the way companies sell goods and services can help increase profits. “We recently commissioned an independent study that showed that companies that embrace value-based selling approaches outperformed those that don’t,” said Curry. The report further demonstrates that many companies, those that are not performing as well, have yet to move from concept to true execution.
Selling professionals are invited to ask Curry a question by calling in to the show live or by sending a chat message during the online radio program. For those who are unable to tune in for the live broadcast, Calvert will accept questions ahead of time via e-mail at deb(dot)calvert(at)peoplefirstps(dot)com
