Show synopsis "For the past several years, the often-unwarranted myth of the pushy, aggressive, and, worst of all, deceitful salesperson has become ingrained in American culture. While consultative selling, the practice of becoming an advisor to the customer, is the most effective method of engaging a client, it has also made the process more challenging -- leaving salespeople who are afraid to close the deal and clients who are reluctant to make a decision. Consultative Closing bridges the gap between the aggressive salesperson who gets results, and the informed consultant who builds lasting relationships. With a revolutionary step-by-step approach to the sales process and proven methods and strategies, this hands-on field guide helps you maneuver the pitfalls, and overcome the fears that can hinder any deal, ensuring that you achieve a successful close while building strong "partnerships" with clients to maximize their investment in your product.

Renowned sales strategist Greg Bennett shows how to turn up the pressure without turning off the client through the use of nonconfrontational strategies -- Mini-Steps that will help seal a definitive close. Also included are sample scripts, several exercises, an online resource center with free audio and video segments, and a four-week plan for implementation.
