Ascend 1-(888) In Sales, Nothing You Say Matters! IK Ě VIS tm (Insights and Knowledge through Experiential Visualization)
What if your sales pitch was more persuasive and your sales force was more effective? The aspiration
You have data to support your point, but potential customers don’t seem to listen, understand, or care enough to act on your recommendations. The reality
People believe what they help create and no amount of our talking and explaining takes the place of letting them create the realizations themselves. In other words, nothing you say matters!

IKĚVIS in action Our client was trying to win more space on retailers’ shelves and they had a fact-based presentation. Yet the story was hard to defend without diving into a lot of data… at which point the buyer’s patience waned and the sale was lost. IKĚVIS solution: an interactive tool which was easy to use, easy to understand and closed the sale. Buyers literally sold themselves while “playing” with the sales presentation. Screen capture
IKĚVIS in action Our client was trying to retain customers by showing they provided important services. Yet there were so many different services, different customers and different situations that a generic presentation was not compelling to any individual customer. And the client could not rely on every sales person to customize the results correctly and with quality. IKĚVIS solution: an interactive tool which could be customized on the fly to match any customer’s situation. Screen capture
IKĚVIS in action Our client had many sales veterans with 15, 20, and even 25 years experience in the industry. Unfortunately, these valuable sales people had trouble adopting a new way of segmenting and selling to customers. In this case our client needed an internal success: get their salespeople to have the “aha” moment which would re-orient their sales approach. IKĚVIS solution: an interactive tool which was easy to use and easy to understand. Sales people convinced themselves of the new way to look at their customers. Screen capture
