This book has impressed upon me the values it will take to optimize my time within our virtual meetings.”
With more than 90% of B2B sales now conducted virtually, rookie and veteran salespeople must master the nuances of virtual selling. “Mastering Virtual Selling: Orchestrating Sales Success” educates sales professionals of all levels how to become buyer-centric and more effective at managing all aspects of virtual selling before, during, and after a prospect meeting.
The book demonstrates the tools and tactics sales professionals need to achieve an intended outcome, including:
