Back Cover Copy

If you’re tired of taking an outsider’s approach to the sales process—trying to get past gatekeepers who look at purchasing decisions on a case-by-case basis, simplistically judging your products’ or services’ value and comparing them to your competitors’—it’s time to change your mindset. Consultative Selling shows you how to move beyond looking at yourself as a vendor and instead partner with your clients, helping them to make profit-improving business decisions validated by their return on investment.

Providing a highly specific and consistently successful approach to sales, this revised edition is packed with new, more advanced strategies and techniques as well as the methods that have transformed countless other salespeoples’ careers since the book’s original publication.

Packed with new partnering strategies, cost/benefit analysis templates, detailed monetized value proposition models, outcome-based branding approaches, and powerful consulting tactics, the eighth edition of this classic guide gets you past the gatekeepers, enabling you to reap the rewards of long-term, increasingly profitable business relationships.

Praise for Previous Editions of Consultative Selling:

“An all-time favorite of salespeople everywhere. Buy this book.”— Paul Tulenko, syndicated columnist

“A groundbreaking book.” — Sales and Marketing Strategies & News

“Everything is aimed at showing customers how a transaction with you will either reduce their costs or increase their revenues.

“Hanan offers the same in-depth, easy-to-follow plan that has made Consultative Selling the classic in its field. Everything you will need to know about changing your sales relationship from vendor/customer to consultant/client is explained precisely.
