  • Snap Selling: Speed Up Sales and Win More Business with Today's Frazzled Customers

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Jill Konrath
    • Narrated By Jill Konrath
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Selling is tougher than ever before. Potential customers are under extreme pressure to do more with less money, less time, and fewer resources, and they're wary of anyone who tries to get them to buy or change anything. Under such extreme conditions, yesterday's sales strategies no longer work. Sales strategist Jill Konrath tells you how to overcome obstacles, get more appointments, speed up decisions, and win sales with today's short-fused, frazzled customers.

    Glenn says: "OK sales book with some good take aways"
    "Great advice for selling in to today's prospects"

    Like Jill's other book, Selling To Big Companies, this book is packed with practical steps to get the attention of busy prospects and move towards the sale. This book won second place in the 2010 top sales books of the year and for good reason. You will want to read it multiple times to understand the shift you will need to make in your sales approach and process. Customers are changing and sales people need to make a change too to stay successful.
