The biggest mistake you're making in your sales career right now is equating a faster pitch with a faster close. Believe it or not, you will actually experience greater success if you slow down. Slow Down, Sell Faster! shows you how to stop jumping the gun and work with your customers to identify and quantify their real needs, so by the time you begin your pitch in earnest, you're already halfway home. Featuring a simple yet powerful eight-step process and practical, repeatable techniques, Slow Down, Sell Faster! is packed with examples from the author's extensive experience, plus research on customer buying processes-rather than traditional selling processes. This buyer-focused approach to selling extends to proposals and presentations, loyalty and retention, and, of course, cultivating more business. Each step in the book corresponds to a role you should adopt to meet a customer's needs at each stage of the buying process. There are two sides to every sale. In today's extra-challenging business climate, understanding the buying process is where professional selling should start."
KEVIN DAVIS is president of TopLine Leadership, a sales and sales management training company. His revolutionary eight-step process is used at Citigroup, ADP, Bayer, Sprint-Nextel, IKON Office Solutions, Global Imaging Systems (a XEROX company), and dozens of other Fortune 500 companies. "

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly Insightful! Kevin Davis has done it again! An excellent follow up to his book, "Getting Into Your Customer's Head". The sales concepts are solid and are easily understood. Having used his sales process for years, I know that it works in the real world. My personal sales have grown immensely since I started using it. I think that "Slow Down, Sell Faster" is perfect for anyone in business to business sales looking for a competitive edge. Well done Mr. Davis.
