High Technology Sales Training Success Story: How ARRiiVE Helped A Sales Team Focus On Selling To The CEO

    

Challenge: Sometimes salespeople lack the resources to get a foot in the door at the top level. So many companies try to get their salespeople to "sell high" or sell to the C-level of an enterprise. Yet, most of the salespeople who are successful at selling to the C-level become promoted into management, where their talents are morphed into other managerial duties. As a result, there are few role models and examples of how to do this available to the aspiring salesperson. Having developed a way to sell to the CEO during his own sales career, Scott Andrews is frequently contacted by salespeople to help them sell to the CEO. This is one example of that type of sales coaching we offered to a sales team selling for NCR.
