The 7 Reasons You Just Lost That Sale

7 reasons final 1

Recently I posted a question on the four most popular of LinkedIn’s Purchasing and Procurement Group’s discussion boards, which gave me the opportunity to ask almost half a million professional buyers one simple question;

“How do most sales people let themselves down?”

After working my way through the answers, it turns out there are 7 recurring issues that cause salespeople to lose the sales that they really didn’t need to.

The full article will appear in the Institute of Sales & Marketing Management’s Winning Edge Magazine later this month – but here’s an early, sneak peek.

You can download a PDF of the full article here.

To launch my latest book – The Managers Guide to Achieving FAME – I’m holding a number of FAME Sales Management Workshops throughout September.

The UK Workshop is taking place at the beautiful Mottram Hall in Cheshire on Thursday 25 September – and to ensure that I get to spend the appropriate amount of time with each of those attending, places are extremely limited.

I hope you can make it – together with a full day’s management training and all workshop materials, those attending will also receive a signed pre-publication copy of the new book and four exercises exclusive to this workshop to take back and use with their teams at their quarterly sales meetings.

I’d be delighted if you could join me on the day – if you can, take a look here for more details.
