Don’t just Sell, Help Your Customer Grow Their Business
Commerce is the act of exchanging value between a buyer and seller, whether product or services. After completing the transaction, we manage that account.
Unfortunately, this is where most salespeople and account managers stop. With an occasional call to see how the customer is doing, and if they are ready to buy more product or services, the account remains in a passive state.
But what if you can help your customer grow their business? Doesn’t it make sense that helping a customer grow their business means you can potentially increase your sales, as well?
John Golden, a Sales and Marketing Leader, offers excellent insight into what you can do to optimize your relationship with your customer as an infographic.
