About Strategic Sales Planning – Planning to Win

In business, the economic climate is always changing. Most of the time, the changes that take place are caused by external factors we’re powerless to control. Having better-trained salespeople than your competitors is a sure way to have the upper hand. Selling in a difficult economy requires a different approach than during a robust one. Therefore, sales staff needs to equip themselves with different skills when selling in a difficult economy. How to sell on value over price is vital to differentiate your business from competition to actively compete and keep your sales afloat.
