The whole concept of selling is about creating a strong preference for you and your solution.You can’t create a preference with the lowest price. Some sales organizations win with lowest price because it’s their business strategy. But even then, a competitor with an even lower price can displace them. That’s not a preference.To create a preference you need relationships. Relationships start with trust, and trust starts with caring. If you’re self-oriented, you make it hard to believe that you care, and when a decision is complex, risky, and expensive, trust is the first test. The relationships you have throughout your dream client’s company deepen their preference for you, your company, and your solutions.But after trust, you create a preference by demonstrating your ability to develop and execute the solution. You need to be someone that your dream client prefers because they want you to be part of their team.
