What are the characteristics of an effective B2B Salesperson?
A business customer will only be interested in an offer of a professional salesperson who has a substantive knowledge of the product or service being presented. Having a thorough knowledge of the product, a salesperson can individually adjust the terms of the offer for a given customer. Each customer may be interested in something different – for some the after-sales service will be important, and for others the parameters of the purchased product. It is up to a salesperson to recognize the customer’s purchasing process. Yes, the customer’s purchasing process is something that should be a point of special interest of the B2B salesperson, but in order for this stage to occur, it will be necessary to reach a decision-maker first, which, contrary to what one might expect, is not such an easy task.
