GenderSell is the first book to offer specific techniques on overcoming the single greatest barrier to effective sales -- selling to the opposite sex. Despite the fact that women make approximately 85 percent of the purchasing decisions on most products and services and constitute more than 25 percent of today's sales force, nearly all relevant books have been written by men for men in sales about selling to men.
Now, at long last, Judith C. Tingley and Lee E. Robert bring you this essential guide, based on extensive research, including their own Sales Preference Survey, conducted with more than 600 participants. They answer important questions such as: What quality do customers say they like most about men in sales and why? What characteristic do they think is strongest in female professionals? Is the timing of the close different with male and female clients?
Using detailed examples and provocative case studies, the authors offer specific techniques to allow sales professionals to increase their revenues, profits, and overall success. GenderSell is the essential handbook for salespeople who want to meet the challenges of business in the 21st century.

Review:

Want to add some sex appeal to your sales approach? Try reading GenderSell by Judith Tingley and Lee Robert. The authors believe that business leaders and sales professionals can dramatically improve results if they understand some general differences in the ways men and women behave and think. The heart of the authors' advice: Be open and adaptive when selling to the opposite sex. Take on the qualities and characteristics of the customer, they write. "When selling to a male, sell more like a man," write Tingley, a psychologist and consultant on gender in the workplace, and Robert, a sales executive. "When selling to a woman, sell more like a woman." That means men can often benefit from a feminine touch. For example, men should bear in mind that women like to talk about people and feelings. You can boost sales to women by showing how the product can be used and enjoyed, instead of rattling off facts and figures. And women should remember that men are impatient for the bottom line. When selling to men, women should build rapport through product knowledge and then quickly get to the point without any disclaimers. Some people may feel stereotyped by the book. However, the authors contend that their findings are based on a vast amount of research, including an original survey of 600 consumers and their preferences for dealing with sales pros. GenderSell is easy to understand and read. It's full of anecdotes about how to close a deal by first closing the gender gap. --Dan Ring

Book Description SIMON & SCHUSTER, United States, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Books like John Gray's MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS have illuminated the ways that psychological differences between the sexes affect personal and workplace relationships. But until now, virtually every book on selling has ignored these differences. And despite the fact that women make approximately 85% of the purchasing decisions on almost every product or service sold, nearly all relevant books have been written by men and address selling to men. Drawing on original research, GENDERSELL is the first book to apply insights about gender distinctions to the art of selling. Which customers relate best to questioning, and which to supplying information? Should you focus more on the process, or the product? When is the right time to close? In these pages, specific techniques and provocative case studies show salespeople how to increase their success with opposite-sex customers. Seller Inventory # AAV9780684864372
