Sales Readiness: Making the case for just-in-time learning
How do you ensure your sellers are trained and ready to achieve their sales quotas?
If you take the traditional route to sales training, you’re spending at least two weeks onboarding new reps with ineffective, classroom-style training featuring product demos, paper-based collateral, and impersonal sales scripts. This approach to sales training is often deemed “just-in-case” learning – cramming as much market, company, and product knowledge into sellers’ heads as possible upfront and hoping they can recall the information later on in live sales scenarios. Companies who adopt this approach often find their sellers fall short of expectations. Why?
Today’s buyers expect more than generic sales presentations that prioritize product features and functionality over their unique challenges or company goals. They want personalized sales interactions that effectively quantify the value your solution will bring to their businesses. Reps who haven’t been coached to uncover unique buyer challenges and effectively communicate your business value will fall flat.
Sales Readiness, a shift from “just-in-case” to “just-in-time” learning, ensures your sellers are equipped to lead value-based conversations throughout the sales process that successfully address buyer challenges, differentiate your company and products, and compel buyers to say “yes!”.
