Discovery Mastery

Deals are won or lost in discovery

We believe that a seller’s discovery is THE golden opportunity to challenge the buyers thinking, surface unrecognised needs and demonstrate unique expertise. Our bar of excellence is your customer turning around and saying “I’d have paid for that conversation”.

Without an effective discovery it’s almost impossible to sell. In today’s environment prospects are often not aware of the underlying pains within their organisation that your product can solve – so finding pain is key:

  • 9 common symptoms of poor discovery and how to avoid these
  • Why “finding pain” is no longer enough in the modern selling environment
