In his eagerly-awaited new book, Robert Beasley introduces his new methodology for managing sales opportunities by illuminating all of the elements that must be addressed in order to win a deal. Succinct, easy-to-implement yet allowing plenty of room for individual personality, the model and its book is resonating with Salespeople and Sales Managers around the world.
Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2013 -- While many sales books often become nothing more than an opportunity for the author to boast about his/her success, Robert Beasley’s ‘Dashboard Selling’ breaks new ground as a truly practical yet simple approach to selling. Following his own advice and keeping the book to-the-point and without fluff, Beasley’s compelling visual selling methodology is quickly garnering a stellar reputation.
Dashboard Selling is a powerful selling methodology for managing complex, strategic sales opportunities more effectively. It helps salespeople accurately assess sales opportunities to determine exactly what questions need to be asked and what actions need to be taken to improve the probability of winning deals.
Sales Manages can leverage Dashboard Selling to dramatically improve their effectiveness as a manager while making a measurable impact on the overall performance of their sales team.
As the author explains, his methodology isn’t based on hype or assumptions; it’s a solid and proven framework that can be adapted to any product, service or commodity.
“It provides a framework for salespeople and their managers to identify the specific areas where they need the most improvement. In addition, it allows salespeople to manage their function with the same discipline and rigor as other business processes by focusing their attention on the exceptions that need to be managed,” says Beasley, who runs ThisQuarter, a renowned sales consulting firm.
He continues, “It's not one of the typical collections of slick tips and tricks to manipulate people into buying your product or service. The visual nature of the ‘Dashboard’ acts as the ultimate ‘truth teller’ that keeps salespeople from lying to themselves and misleading their bosses. It is becoming increasingly difficult for salespeople to maintain their effectiveness due to the deluge of electronic communication that we all face. Dashboard Selling helps salespeople stay focused on what really matters.”
While the book outlines exactly what needs to be done in order to effectively execute the Dashboard Selling model, plenty of room remains for individual personalities to determine how to do it.
With millions of businesses around the world still struggling to reach their post-recession profits, Beasley stands firm in his belief the that salespeople form the foundation of any corporation.
“All businesses depend on salespeople to close new business. Without sales, everyone from marketing to manufacturing to accounting won't have a job. Tight economic times require salespeople to be even better at their jobs to achieve the same results. My book aims to improve the bottom-line for any business operation by focusing attention only on facets that move the buyer/seller relationship closer to closing,” he adds.
In order to give back, Beasley is donating 20% of all book profits to relief and development organizations that are at the front line of battling some of the world’s harshest injustices.
