Posted on November.12.2017 by Bruce King

If there’s one thing most prospects will want to negotiate on, it’s price. They’ll say things like “It’s too expensive”, or “we can’t afford that”, or “It’s more than we want to pay” or “we don’t have the budget”. Note: they do not always directly ask for a price reduction.

Posted on October.15.2017 by Bruce King

LIM is a Chinese businessman I got into a conversation with when we were stranded at an airport in Hong Kong due to a heavy snowfall.

Forget Sales Targets and Quotas and do this instead…

Posted on July.13.2017 by Bruce King

One of the reasons salespeople fail to make their sales quota or sales target is they are too focused on that quota or target. And that’s wrong. When things are not going as well as they should, it’s easy to get frustrated and demotivated. The focus instead should be on the Sales Process, because when […]

Nothing and everything to do about sales

Posted on July.03.2017 by Bruce King

I found this quite wonderful, as did General Douglas MacArthur. It was written by Samuel Ullman, an American businessman, poet and humanitarian, back in the 1800s … “Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is […]
