Pre-Workshop Assignment:

Closing High-Gain Digital Accounts: Every seller should come prepared to discuss at least one key account they are targeting; they will leave the workshop with a strategic and tactical plan to close their targeted account.


Discussion about objections blocking path toward closure

Collaborative Exercise:

Working in small groups, participants will analyze each account, following this process:

  • Biggest Possible Deal: Analysis of potential revenue for current campaign and future revenue
  • The Positioning Statement: What is the right recommendation? What campaign would produce the right results for this client?
  • Research: What can we learn about the advertiser and their industry to help us position our offer more persuasively?
  • Case Study: What existing case studies and success stories will support your positioning?
  • Starting Point: How should we open the meeting?
  • Questions: What do we need to ask and learn in order to advance the sale?
  • Next Step Strategy: If the meeting goes well, what would be the recommended next step (plan A and plan B)?
  • Anticipated Objections: What are the anticipated objections and recommended turnarounds?

Role Play—Rehearsal:

Participants will take turns demonstrating

  • The Position / Meeting Open
  • 1st and 2nd level questions
  • Anticipated ROI “argument”
  • Anticipated Objections
  • Next Step Strategy
