Selling the Price Increase
The Ultimate B2B Field Guide for Raising Prices Without Losing Customers
Jeb Blount offers the strategies B2B salespeople need to convince customers to accept price increases.
In the B2B realm, customers and salespeople both hate one thing: price increases. Customers hate them because it means paying more for products and services; salespeople hate them because rising costs make their job tougher. Veteran sales author Jeb Blount explains strategies salespeople can use to minimize their customers’ pain. Salespeople can justify increases with superior account management, wise psychological approaches, proactive conversations or targeted business case presentations – all designed to prevent customers from changing vendors. Blount details these stratagems and more for salespeople who must exercise finesse to persuade clients to accept price increases.
