In this week’s Scale Your Sales podcast episode, my guest is Julie Thomas, the President and CEO of ValueSelling Associates.
Julie is the author of "The Power of Value Selling: The Gold Standard to Drive Revenue to Create Customers for Life," and works with revenue leaders across many industries to help them realize results they never thought possible. She is passionate about guiding revenue organizations through uncertainty and helping them build resilient, engaged teams that drive predictable, sustainable results and create customers for life.
In this episode, we delve into the world of value selling and its transformative potential for businesses in the digital age. Our guest introduces her recently launched book, "The Power of Value Selling," which serves as a contemporary guide to driving revenue and cultivating lifelong customer relationships. We explore the shift from her previous work in 2006, highlighting the profound changes in technology and communication strategies that have reshaped the value selling landscape. She also discussed the intricacies of conveying value through both extrinsic and intrinsic approaches, and the pivotal role value-based selling plays in fostering customer loyalty and retention. We also dissect the shortcomings of traditional sales processes, shedding light on the symbiotic relationship between customer success and sales effectiveness.
