Publisher's Summary

The Maverick Method is a powerful and unique selling method that provides the complete picture of how complex sales work. The Method has been researched, developed and practiced over a 20-year period. We have studied and modeled over one hundred of the most successful salespeople. Unlike other selling methods, the Maverick Method has been proven by salespeople on the frontlines of the most difficult selling environments imaginable. The Mavericks that we have modeled have been able to create new markets, dominate their market segments, and marginalize their competitors.

If you're in B2B sales, then this is for you

Would you consider the audio edition of The Maverick Selling Method to be better than the print version?

Don't know. Don't have the print version yet. Print would be a good reference resource.

Any additional comments?

Unlike other sales books, this doesn't get into the standard "closing techniques" that so many books do. I've never found those old-fashioned techniques of much value, especially in a B2B environment.<br/><br/>However, this book is a real treasure! It goes far beyond other "sales manuals" and gets to the heart of how to handle B2B sales. The techniques mentioned in this book will work for non-complex sales as well.

Real Selling ideas for anyone in the B2B selling.

If you could sum up The Maverick Selling Method in three words, what would they be?

Direct, Simple Complete

What other book might you compare The Maverick Selling Method to and why?

Challenger Sale and Spin Selling but they only focus on what to say at the first meeting. The problem with that is we need to know what to do after the first meeting.

What about Paul del Signore’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It is a resource book not a story book. So you want to take it in small bites and go back to learn more.

This book does what so many have tried to do.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Maverick Selling Method to be better than the print version?

Most sales books are just a list of tips and tricks written by people who have never sold. This book gives deep first hand insights that are written in case study format and not as war stories.

Modeling the best salespeople.

What made the experience of listening to The Maverick Selling Method the most enjoyable?

First hand examples and comparisons of what makes one salesperson better then another.

What other book might you compare The Maverick Selling Method to and why?

This book is what challenger sale tried to do but failed. It also takes into consideration the whole sales process and not just the first sales call.

Best Sales Book On Audible

Who was your favorite character and why?

Chapter 4 was worth the whole book. Unlike the 50 year old ideas that are rehashed on other sales books this is written from first hand selling.

What does Paul del Signore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The book is a referrence book which you should repeat as needed not just listen and put on the shelf.

Any additional comments?

Anyone who wants to learn what great salespeople do differently then the rest this is the book.

Best in Case. If you are a b2b salesperson.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Maverick Selling Method?

The case studies and laws of selling.

What about Paul del Signore’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen to and understand.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No this is book you spread out and replay to really get.

A real sales person has shared what the best do.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Maverick Selling Method to be better than the print version?

Most of these sales books are just repeats of the same old positive attitude or 1000 closes. This book explains what great salespeople do differently. It has a lot of info so you have to take your time with the content.

Real life case studies
