    • Documenting your value added

      • No charge invoices, project savings reports, warranty reports, customer service action reports,…other ideas?

    • Value reminding through positive bragging

      • Follow up assistance requests, get testimonials from them and use them later, …company wide. Any other ideas?

    • Conducting value audits

      • Customer satisfaction surveys, supplier performance appraisal, post sale value added follow-up questions focusing on performance and satisfaction.


  • What is “pipeline-itis”? (Reilly, 2003, p. 123)

    • 3-7 effort and transaction costs of new

    Hi-Level Value-Added Selling

    • Calling on HLDMs

      • Why salespeople don’t:

        • Intimidated by HLDM

        • Fear offending lower levels

        • Lack skills to do so

        • Don’t believe HLDM will meet with them

          Please get into your sales teams and discuss the above four issues.Determine and provide concrete examples of how “Selling to Vito” may help you deal with each of these fears.

    • Tips from Reilly:

      • Get to the point, deliver high-end leave behinds, use time efficiently, get them to share their vision, demonstrate your competence from the outset

    Prepare for VITO & Individual Video Project

    • Think about your Individual Video Sales Project(Download assignment from website)

      • Determine your product, service or idea you are going to sell

      • Determine your corporate and sales Value Adds

      • Define the ultimate target market customer

      • Personify the target by defining characteristics, traits and needs.

    • DEVELOP YOUR VITO letter with the above in mind to help you get your mind FOCUSED around your KEY BENEFITS (by developing your key benefit statement).

    • PREPARE your video development plan

      • Book a time and date as well as reserving/acquiring any equipment you made need (e.g.: video camera and tripod).

      • Book a time and date to edit your video

      • Prepare your video well in advance of the due date and make BACK-UP copies of your work as you proceed– watch out for MURPHY’S LAW.
