Value Based Selling

Value Based Selling (VBS) has been defined as an approach to selling that attempts to quantify to a customer the economic value, or monetary worth, of your product or services performance advantages versus competing products.

Value Based Selling (VBS) has been defined as an approach to selling that attempts to quantify to a customer the economic value, or monetary worth, of your product or services performance advantages versus competing products.



In order to be able to do this a number of things are immediately apparent:



1. The need to understand the things that customers truly value

2. The need to understand competitors and their capabilities in detail

3. The ability to differentiate your offering for the customer in ways they truly value

4. The ability to communicate your offer persuasively and effectively

5. The need to understand just what value is

Traditional sales approaches simply don’t go far enough and fail to understand and respond to the issues of value and value delivery. The result is frequently a supplier focussed rather than a customer focussed approach to selling.



Value Based Selling changes that and focuses fundamentally on understanding customer’s problems, opportunities and issues, and in developing differentiated solutions to address them.
