Disruptive Sales Training

Disruptive selling requires a different approach than selling a competitive offering in a mature market. Rather than focusing on matching customer needs with a differentiated solution, disruptive selling requires salespeople to create a vision of an unanticipated outcome. An outcome they’ve never anticipated or recognized before. Funnel Clarity’s approach to sales training has always been to recognize differing strengths, weaknesses, challenges and opportunities in different sales environments, and pinpoint strategies and tactics that create success.

Disruptive Sales Training for Innovative Solutions & Organizations

Innovating Sales to Sell Innovations

A pillar of disruptive sales training is to use sales techniques that are as innovative as the solution you’re selling. The business landscape is brimming with failed innovations that could’ve otherwise succeeded if the solution was properly categorized, and the sales team was better equipped to sell it. 

Universal skills for salespeople include active listening, good communication, establishing rapport and moving prospects along a decision journey. Disruptive selling requires a new approach to time-honored skills. We employ a data-driven approach to disruptive sales training, identifying the needed strategies and tactics unique to this scenario and helping salespeople close more deals. 

Course Curriculum: Selling in a New Market Space©

Course Introduction

15 minutes

The course begins with an overview of what to expect, reflection on the common pitfalls of selling in a new market place and a framework for daily practice.

Section 1: Defining Selling in a New Market Space

30-45 minutes a day for 1 week, self-paced.

Selling an innovative or disruptive offering is about helping decision makers see a vision of the possible. Sellers in a mature market need to focus on differentiation. This difference means that even experienced sellers need a new approach for disruptive or innovative offerings.

Section 2: Laying the Foundation

30-45 minutes a day for 1 week, self-paced.

This section introduces how to identify the Decision Makers and how to create value for each Buyer Decision Role. When selling innovative/disruptive offerings, it can be difficult to identify potential decision-makers.

Section 3: Executing a New Market Space Conversation

30-45 minutes a day for 1 week, self-paced.

The questions a seller asks, the call plan they assemble and the information they provide is very different from that of selling into a mature market. A key step in your efforts to sell innovation is the ability to engage a professional dialogue of mutual discovery early on.
