Creating Urgency: How to Get Customers to Take Action Faster


Buyer indecision can kill your sales.  Research organizations from Gartner to Forrester indicate sales cycles are getting longer and more complex, and this is creating stress for sales organizations and salespeople.  Why do customers procrastinate in making buying decisions, and what can you do about it?

The July 4th Asher Sales Sense Podcast “Creating Urgency: How to Get Customers to Take Action Faster” with host John Asher features Mike Schmidtmann, Peer Group Facilitator, Business Coach and producer of the award-winning Trans4mers webinar series.  After building IT Sales organizations for 25 years, Mike now works with owners and managers to help them grow their businesses more effectively by teaching innovative practices to hire great people, win new business, and improve profits.

This Asher Sales Sense session with Mike Schmidtmann digs into the causes of indecision and offers tangible ways to create urgency for customers to take action quickly.  Listeners will learn the root causes of buyer procrastination, ways to create urgency for action, and how to “pull” rather than “push” customer decisions.  Why do buyers procrastinate?  What do salespeople do wrong?  And what are the most powerful motivators for action?  Tune in on July 4th to find answers to these and other urgent sales questions and get your customers lined up for action.
