I am a sales trainer and I have found this book a must read and have not been able to put it down. It has helped to change my thought processes with its Simply approach and excellent examples. Many sales books I have read preach but Jill gives you the ideas and follows through with practical examples of how it can be used.
I am already a wash with ideas about refreshing/changing my existing courses to make them real for the end customer. Sales people can be lazy when it comes to preparation and SNAP selling provides focus during this stage, makes it easy and the results will then do the talking.
If you buy one sale book in 2011, make it this one.
The acronym SNAP reminds us that our interactions with our prospects need to be Simple, iNvaluable, Aligned and Prioritised. Simple, because we have a vital role to play in helping our prospects deal with the complexities that surround any decision making process. iNvaluable, because in a world where it's hard for prospects to differentiate vendor offerings, we need to find ways of elevating our unique value through our interaction with them. Aligned, because we need to remain focused at all times on the things that really matter to our prospects, and Prioritised, because if we're not dealing with issues that are urgent, we're ultimately irrelevant.
Jill skilfully explains how these four factors play out through the three key phases of our prospect's decision making journey, which she identifies as:
1. The decision to allow us access, during which we help our prospect to move from Oblivious (no interest in connecting) to Curious (agreeing to a conversation)
2. The decision to initiate change, during which we help our prospect move from Complacent (will listen to ideas) to Committed (they have concluded that the status quo is unacceptable)

Konrath also explains how to "build a foundation" for what eventually could become a cohesive, comprehensive, and cost-effective system for effective preparation, cultivation, and solicitation. What she is talking about really is a high-stakes "game" played against formidable opponents according to rules that can sometimes change suddenly in response to unexpected developments.
Indeed, a great deal has changed during the five years since that book was published. For example, mostly because of online resources that are easily accessible, customers are much more knowledgeable about options purchase now than ever before thus and have more issues to consider than ever before. One result is that they seem to have the attention span of a strobe light flash. Another is that, especially during a down economy, customers often feel (as Konrath characterizes it) "frazzled." Whether selling to a big company or to an individual, those in sales must make "fundamental shifts" (adjustments, modifications, refinements, etc.) in terms of what they do and how they do it, what they avoid as well as what they master and then initiate, "in order to get in front of this rapidly changing marketplace."
Konrath acknowledges, "Some people won't like what I have to say.Read more ›
