The Virus Ate My Sales Forecast

As virus scares rattle market confidence, sales and marketing teams face a fearful buyer they haven’t seen since 2010 – if ever.

My take here on how they should respond as the ground shifts under them. I was lucky enough to start my sales career in a tanked economy. I didn’t know any different but I read every sales book I could find (aka “YouTube Unplugged”) and you learn pretty fast when the rent is due. It was all gravy after those years passed 😂😀

  1. Thanks for sharing this Kent. Fear definitely can make buyers think again, however, somebody somewhere taught me to turn every disadvantage into an advantage. For me the buyer should have a fear of not changing, continuing with the staus quo. Once the buyer believes where they are currently carries more risk than moving to a new solution they will drive the sale through.
