Sales Challenge Skills-Building Scenario Flash Cards
This sales prospecting skills-enhancing tool builds confidence and competence through a wide-range of realistic and specific roll-playing exercises. Two participants interact independently of an instructor one plays the prospector or seller and the other acts as the prospective buyer. The seller is presented with a specific challenge, such as dealing with a gatekeeper or making an introductory call to a targeted buyer. The buyer's responses are scripted to model one of many real world situations the prospector is likely to encounter for the prospecting phase being "reinforced". Prospecting phases include: fit assessment & target contact identification; message delivery and pain/need identification; need & situation exploration; opportunity qualification; building credibility & trust; and next step planning. Prospectors will confront situations involving: blockers, screeners, gatekeepers, voicemail systems, wrong contacts, and targeted individuals providing favorable, unfavorable, & neutral responses. Prospectors are challenged to apply a standard proven process, overcome numerous obstacles, and share the appropriate next-step action(s) with his/her training partner. Prospectors learn agility and prospecting best-practices through a fun, interactive and realistic skills-building activity. Sales Challenge promotes the use of Meta's proven highly-effective 5-Step prospecting process, ideally suited for companies with hard-to-sell offerings selling into multi-buyer sales situations.
