WHAT DOES B2B Stand For In Sales?

B2B stands for business-to-business, which refers to transactions and interactions between two businesses rather than between a business and individual consumers (B2C). In B2B sales, one company sells products or services to another company, typically for business use or resale. These transactions often involve a more complex decision-making process, longer sales cycles, and a focus on building long-term relationships.

B2B SALES TRAINING

The fact is, today B2B buyers only spend 17% of the total purchase journey with sales reps. With millennials replacing older professionals it’s important to be aware that 44% of millennials prefer no interaction with sales representatives in B2B settings. As a result, it’s important for your reps to be equipped with advanced selling techniques so they can reach these prospects and present in a way that relates to them.
B2B buyers are overwhelmed with information about complex solutions, affecting their willingness to buy. So much so that customers who report encountering overwhelming amounts of information are 54% less likely to purchase.  Advanced Selling helps customers make sense of all of the information they’ve gathered and makes it easier for them to buy from you.
Consultative selling might build relationships, but it doesn’t deliver the best sales results. Instead reps need to be equipped with the skills to advise their prospects on ideal solutions, while also gaining commitment along the way.

Do the statements above sound familiar? Then it’s time to implement SOCO’s B2B Selling Program so your team can be confident and competent enough to take major deals over the line.

B2B SELLING
Course Outline

what are the stages of B2B sales?

If you’re a B2B seller, you know how important it is to understand the sales process and how to guide your prospects through it. The sales process consists of five key stages. In each stage, you need to provide value, build trust, and address the needs and pain points of your prospects.

  1. Recognising a Problem or Need (Awareness): Your prospects become aware of a problem or a need that your solution can address.
  2. Commitment to Change: Your prospects decide to invest in a solution and define their criteria and budget.
  3. Investigating, Evaluating & Comparing Solutions (Consideration): Your prospects research and compare different solutions and vendors in the market.
  4. Asking Suppliers to Submit RFP: Your prospects request and evaluate proposals from their preferred vendors and narrow down their options.
  5. Choosing a Supplier (Decision Stage): Your prospects choose the best solution and vendor for their business and finalize the deal.

The B2B sales process is a complex and lengthy journey that requires a lot of skill, patience, and persistence. But by understanding each stage and applying the right strategies and techniques, you can increase your chances of success and grow your business.

WHY B2B SALES TRAINING?

B2B (business-to-business) specific sales training is vital in today’s competitive marketplace, where complex transactions and intricate decision-making processes define the landscape. Unlike B2C (business-to-consumer) transactions, B2B sales involve a myriad of stakeholders, long sales cycles, and intricate negotiations.

Because of this, specialized training equips sales professionals with the nuanced skills required to navigate the complexities of B2B relationships. From understanding the intricacies of client businesses to effectively communicating the value proposition of products or services, B2B sales training ensures that professionals are adept at building and maintaining long-term partnerships.

It hones in on relationship-building, strategic thinking, and a deep understanding of industry-specific challenges, enabling sales teams to not only meet but exceed the unique demands of B2B transactions, ultimately fostering sustained success and growth for both parties involved.

The SOCO team facilitated a workshop that exceeded our (already high) expectations. Engagement from our sales team, especially those disgruntled to have been taken out of the field, was phenomenal....I could not have achieved our learning objectives w/o SOCO's assistance. I am looking forward to leveraging your team again soon.

B2B Sales Training Program
5 THINGS EVERY B2B SALES TRAINING PROGRAM NEEDS TO INCLUDE

A successful sales department needs skilled employees who have the necessary knowledge to perform their jobs well. To get the most from your sales team, the members need to be constantly updating their selling skills. This is true whether the person is a long-time team member or brand-new to your company. With proper B2B sales training, you can grow your company faster than you thought possible.

1. Tailored Approach

Using a one-size-fits-all approach for B2B sales training may not give you the desired return on investment. You must tailor and customise the program for your industry. It also needs to include some case studies, stories, and exercises.

2. Skills Assessment

Every B2B sales program should start with a pre-training needs assessment to determine the best course of action to improve your sales. By doing this, you lay the concrete foundations for learner retention and learning reinforcement down the line.

3. Implementation Support

What do you think occurs when sales representatives and supervisors exit the room post-training? Learners need extra tools like cheat sheets, frameworks, planners, checklists, and conversation guides. This is to ensure that they can effectively apply what they have learned.

4. Training Reinforcement

Learning reinforcement is a critical piece of the cogs that form your return on investment for B2B sales training. Sales teams often expect improved results after training. However, they typically do not make significant changes to their habits upon returning to work. That’s why to make a long term and impactful change to your operations, all b2b sales training programs need a training reinforcement plan.

5. Coaching

Businesses go through changes, so leaders must regularly support their teams. Provide structure for your team because lecturing won’t be effective once they reach a certain level of understanding. Sales teams need coaching in B2B sales training programs to learn how to achieve their goals.

FOCUS ON THE NEEDS OF THE BUSINESS AND THE EXPERIENCE OF ITS TEAM MEMBERS

Forget about general sales topics. Focus on the specific needs of sales professionals and their real-world challenges. That means, forget about covering general sales topics and instead concentrate on the specific needs which are relevant to the real-world challenges of the sales professionals. 

At SOCO/ Sales Training we thoroughly analyse the company and team before we begin designing the program. After understanding the company, their audience, and customers, we will plan training that suits their industry and sales process. This is important in B2B sales as what works in retails may not apply to selling to another business.

Maximize Results with SOCO
WHY SHOULD YOUR TEAM TAKE B2B SALES TRAINING COURSES?

Many sales teams haven’t received formal sale training, but the company depends on them for revenue. Teams without training and a sales structure have to figure out what works through trial and error. This leads to some members excelling while others struggle.

By using a top-notch sales training program and system, team members support each other to reach their goals. They also implement best practices. Most importantly, they improve closing ratios. Sales training is one of the few corporate training programs that quickly pays off for companies.

Customised, Results Based Training
ONE OFF SALES TRAINING DOesN'T WORK, HERE'S WHAT DOES

At SOCO/, we don’t believe in 1-off training, which is why we recommend a complete system. All of our sales training programs include:

PROVIDE TAKE-HOME INFORMATION AND JOB AIDS

Training sessions often provide a lot of information quickly, and attendees may forget much of it. That’s why it’s important to give a detailed manual for people attending B2B sales training to take home and study later.

Our training package is more than just a printout of the PowerPoint presentation. Instead, participants get a detailed guide that explains all important parts of the sales course, like discussed techniques and concepts. After the B2B sales training, we reinforce the concepts with weekly videos, articles, tips, and slide decks.

ACTIONABLE TECHNIQUES WHICH EMPLOYEES CAN EASILY ASSESS

Don’t teach sales theories that aren’t helpful right away or skills that are hard to tell if they’re helping salespeople succeed. By sharing simple steps, they can know where they are in the process and what to do next. This boosts their confidence and helps them assess the effectiveness of the technique they are using.

We reinforce this with problem specific role-plays. To solve the participants’ problems, we will ask them about the challenges they are facing. We will then discuss these challenges in the workshop with everyone.
