Sales Call Planning Presentation

Successful selling is based on planning and preparation before the sales call and sales presentation. One of the most important areas of preparation pertains to understanding a product’s features and how those features might solve buyers’ needs. 

The link between product features and buyers’ needs is accomplished by converting a product’s features into benefits for the buyer. Benefits are solutions to needs. It is important to realize that specific product features may yield different benefits to different buyers. Thus, preparation includes imagining the variety of buyers’ needs that a feature might address and how to uncover potential benefits through doing good research on the customer or organization.
