Competitive Selling

Own Your Competition

The Theory of Closing

Know or No?

“Closing” is misunderstood because it is often seen as a moment in time – that is, it’s all about the “big close” at the end of the discussion. This viewpoint will lead to a faulty approach, and likely an awkward and unwelcome final close.

Gaining Commitment however is best seen as a process, as if crossing a river by hopping from boulder to boulder. The key is to understand that each attempt is linked to the next, that you are “hopping” from one agreement to another and thereby presenting a logical path to the customer.
