Most salespeople are quick to write a quote and most prospects have learned to take full advantage of this situation. No matter how competitive our price we still hear "Thanks, I'll get back to you" and off they go in search of an even lower quote. And why shouldn't they? Printing has turned into a commodity where price is often the primary point of differentiation.

. . . . . . . . What you need to know about price . . . . . . . .

If you think back to the number of jobs you've lost to prospects who said "Your price is too high" you'd think that price is of paramount importance when it fact it accounts for less than 20% in the decision making process. During a recent survey we contacted the decision makers at over 200 businesses and ask them what they look for when buying printing? Less than 10% indicated that price was their primary concern.

If prospects are not that concerned about price why are they always raising price objections?
The main reason that we lose jobs to lower quotes is because our presentation forces our prospects to base their buying decision on price.

How does my presentation force the prospect to look for the lowest price?
Prospects compare quotes by looking for points of differentiation and when you quote your prospect's exact specs then the only distinguishing feature between you and the competition is the price. In other words, your presentation is forcing the prospect to focus on price.

Why don't I get the job when I submit the lowest quote?
When calling on a new prospect you're not competing on a level playing field. The field is heavily slanted in favour of the prospect's existing supplier because changing printers involves inconvenience and risk and prospects will only change suppliers if the benefits outweigh this risk. Unfortunately, a lower price is rarely a strong enough benefit, because in most cases the prospect will show your competitive quote to his existing supplier; who will match it. As a result the prospect gets low price without the risk and inconvenience of making a change.

Don't prospects also consider quality and service when making a buying decision?
No, they expect it! In today's marketplace, delivering a quality job and providing outstanding service is the minimum requirement for doing business not the reason that someone should order from you.

Winning at the quoting game has little to do with price
By implementing proper selling techniques and strategies you can eliminate price competition and consistently land the job even when yours is the highest quote and these are precisely the techniques that you'll learn as you listen to this webinar.
