Is Feature Benefit Selling Dead?

The woman, who was in her 70s, had subsequently developed an infection in her thigh and hip for which she was hospitalized in India several times. The Reno doctors recognized that the infection was serious—and the visit to India, where antibiotic-resistant bacteria runs rampant, raised red flags.

Business Marketing: Understand What Customers Value. “Everything is worth what its purchaser will pay for it.” Publilius Syrus, first century B.C. How do you define value? Can you measure it?

This is especially true for sales professionals, who are often field-based and may work out of regional locations or more commonly, a home office.

Being away from the hustle and bustle of a larger office definitely has its benefits — no “coffee talk” distractions, no mystery food in the fridge — and for sales people, being physically located in their assigned region can mean more face-to-face time with nearby customers and prospects. Working remotely however, doesn’t come without its pitfalls – and these can negatively impact performance if not addressed.
