Episode #482: Should I Quote First or Last?

The Advanced Selling Podcast

On this episode of The Advanced Selling Podcast, Bill Caskey & Bryan Neale answer a listener question from John in Washington DC. He’s new in the SAaS space and has figured out where his problem is but not yet what to do about it. The issue is, “Should he be first or last to propose?”

As you might guess, Bill & Bryan take the question and bend it all sorts of ways to come up with some good suggestions for John. This is really less about the SAas space, and more about how to handle the ever-occurring stall of “not now.”
