If buyers are asking us for a business case, or help to write their own business case, what they’re trying to do is document economic value. How much money is our product going to make or save their company?
Well, this is awesome because what we want to do is help our buyers understand value. This is the exact best situation that we could possibly be in. So, what we as salespeople should be doing is understanding, how is it that our buyers get value from our products? And I can tell you it’s not our features.
And in fact, it’s probably benefits, but it’s benefits translated into, first, what’s the problem we’re solving for the customer? What’s the expected result the customer might get? And finally, how do we turn that into dollars for that individual customer?
