Timothy Riesterer and Erik Peterson
The Expansion Sale
Four Must-Win Conversations to Keep and Grow Your Customers
The supposedly best selling practices may not be the best. Try science instead.
Salespeople often pattern their techniques on the best practices of experts in the field. Erik Peterson and Tim Riesterer, who base their recommendations on behavioral research, suggest that instead, salespeople should rely on “scientific rigor,” by applying the lessons their firm learned from studying thousands of salespeople’s techniques and their ensuing success. They focus on the practical application of the cause-and-effect results of their studies and tell you how to put their data to work.
