Value Selling in Uncharted Waters

Moore Power Sales is offering a complimentary live stream
that will dive into the aspects of:

What it really means to sell value– whose definition of value really matters? Not yours! Unless we can have our prospects define what value means to them, our definition is worthless. What do they do to hide this?

What it really takes to sell Value – it takes a selling process that is geared to uncover the value as defined by our prospects. Many salespeople push their view of the value they bring and it is a total disconnect. We must have a disciplined process that allows us to get there.

What skills we need to really sell our value – we need the Value Seller Competencies all the time, but now they are simply vital. You’ll be surprised at what these are.

Reminder: Enforcement Begins on Sunday

Governor Tom Wolf announced yesterday that Dr. Rachel Levine, under her authority as Secretary of the Department of Health to take any disease control measure appropriate to protect the public from the spread of infectious disease, signed an order directing protections for critical workers who are employed at businesses that are authorized to maintain in-person operations during the COVID-19 disaster emergency.

Among other things, this order requires all customers to wear masks while on premises, and orders businesses to deny entry to individuals not wearing masks, unless the business is providing medication, medical supplies, or food, in which case the business must provide alternative methods of pick-up or delivery of goods.

Failure to comply with these requirements will result in enforcement action that could include citations, fines, or license suspensions. Compliance with the order will be enforced beginning Sunday, April 19 at 8:00 PM.
