STC034 Do corporates need you if they already have internal resources?


** Happy Christmas STC Listener! If you’re feeling full of festive cheer and want to leave a review, then now is the perfect time..! **

And if you’re ready to get your head back into business, then today’s episode is here to help. 

Have you ever thought; ‘Why would corporates really need ‘little old me’ to help with [PROBLEM]?’ Then this episode is for you! Over the last twelve months, I’ve had a lot of listeners who’ve jumped into my email inbox feeling like they might be too ‘small fry’ to successfully sell their products/ services into corporate organisations… and whilst it’s normal to feel a little overwhelmed about adding a corporate revenue stream… it’s also not the best attitude to create more corporate sales in 2021 and beyond.

In order to make sure you head into 2021, equipped with the knowledge and ability to know your value with corporate organisations (even if they have internal resources in your area of specialism) I’m making it super easy to understand why corporates need you – and how you can help show them that too.

In this episode, I’m sharing;

  • What we’re really asking when we want to know if corporates want to work with smaller/ solo suppliers ([03:56])
  • How the landscape has changed; what did organisations used to prioritise when buying from external suppliers? ([06:00])
  • Why awareness is about marketing… and sales is only about sales activities. ([11:29])
  • Why agility is important for corporate organisations – and how you can bring that to the table as a smaller/ solo supplier ([14:37])
  • How smaller suppliers can win the negotiation game. ([17:21])
  • How corporate organisations are learning to love customised offerings and the difference they’ll make to your bottom line. ([20:19])
  • The key difference between internal resource and specialist resources (and how it impacts your sales process) ([21:43])
  • How to effectively ‘back yourself’ as the preferred supplier for corporate organisations ([26:40])

So if you’ve been thinking about how you can position yourself favourably – regardless of whether or not a corporate organisation has internal resources? Then make sure you listen to this episode and start implementing in the New Year!
