Landscape slides

Deliver biz case/value message first with real numbers if you have them, especially if you can get the time to value for ROI.

Then hit pricing

Then hit next steps and mutual actions to close.

You should set the stage on previous conversations in 1-3 slides, less is more here.

Then value/ROI and how that builds into the sizing of the license proposal in 1-2 slides,

1-2 pricing slides.

1 slide mutual closing actions with next steps.

Anxiety before your sales demos?

Do these 2 things I used to do to get over it:

1. Know the product inside out - it will take time for you to gain confidence in your sales abilities but if you know the product will you’ll be more confident in that domain.

2. Do more demos - the more calls and presentations you do the more comfortable you’ll get. My advice is to try to get on a lot of presentations, even with leads that aren’t so good.

Got back from 2 weeks of holidays and a month of sick leave I’m a bit demotivated by the culture of always been closing, always pushing etc.. I feel like I’m a bit tired. Probably I need a new experience or I don’t like the job anymore.. Anyone been in this situation? Any advice?
