OPPORTUNITY COST
 Hosted PBX has a high opportunity cost factor
 Once the customer chooses another provider they are “lost”
for at least 3 years – probably much longer
 Given you may have a limited number of businesses to go
after, this has a big economic impact
$2,000,000
Market Example:
$1,800,000

$1,400,000

1,600 businesses in a single
target market
6 month delay results in
$900K less revenue over 5
years – 20% less!

MARKET RESPONSE – MORE COMPETITIVE PRESSURE
 An attractive market with good returns = competition
 Hosted PBX is also a disruption on how companies purchase
telephony services
 Most haven’t thought about it in some time (or at all)
 Two emerging players – large MSO’s and Over-the-Top
 Both have aggressive pricing and a lot of marketing
 US Pricing – normalizing in the $30/seat/month range
 Slightly higher in EMEA
 Slightly lower in APAC and CALA

YOU HAVE THE HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE
 Not only can you deliver a
best in class product at an
attractive price, you can
deliver:




Personalized service
Local sales force
On-call technicians nearby
Reference customers in the
community
 This needs to be central to
your marketing messaging
and sales model!

SEGMENTATION
 Understand your marketplace and what customers are
looking for
 Put a dollar value on those segments so you know where to
focus
 This might minor changes to your offer to meet business requirements
of a certain type of customer (size or vertical)
 Also examine your salesforce and their capabilities
SEGMENTATION NEEDS BY MARKET SIZE
 Bigger companies have more specialized needs
Smaller Businesses
Mid-Size Businesses

MOBILITY – GET IT INTO YOUR OFFER
 Mobility package would enable integration of desk phone
environment with any device
 For instance, if the end user has an iPhone, iPad, and Windows laptop,
they can load the application on all devices for the same price
 Would allow “mobile-only” users – no desk phone, just
client(s) – would still need to buy a “seat”
 Research points to a $5/month price point

THINK THROUGH YOUR OPERATIONAL PLAN
 Hosted has lots of moving parts

OPERATIONS MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE
 Strive to get a quote to a prospect within 48 hours
Outreach to first sales conversation
Outreach
Referral to
Sales
Time from sales call to first quote
Initial Sales
Conversation
Time from initial quote to final quote
Revise
Quote
Draft Quote
Final Quote
 Once the sale is made, target a customer turn-up within 30
days
 Clearly communicate timelines with the customer
 Be professional throughout
 Research shows that a positive up-front experience is a big
indicator of a long term relationship – go the extra mile!

YOUR WEBSITE

Front door to your product and
your company

Prospects (that don’t know you)
will almost certainly research
you using your website

Invest in it and make it current!

THE WRONG APPROACH TO SALES TRAINING
Slide 1 –
“Hosted Voice Service is
Service Provider X’s answer to
the communication needs of
today’s Small and Medium
Business Customer.”
Slide 2 –
 Jargon and Network Diagrams in
advance of customer benefits
 No benefits statements to features
or practical applications
 Offer Training vs. Sales Training -Lack of Solutions Selling and
practical use cases
SOLUTION SELLING
 Solution selling involves asking clarifying questions to
understand a customer’s needs before you propose a
solution
 Key is to become the trusted advisor – helping them solve a
business problem using your expertise
 A short video:
http://smallbusiness.chron.com/solution-selling-sales-training-71867.html
It is critical that sales know this product inside
and out…this is a competitive market with very
experienced sales people

THREE SIMPLE STEPS
Ask
Listen
Advise
• 5 Questions that are not specific to
technology
• What are the business’ core values
• From the customer’s responses you can
begin to formulate your solution
• Listen for indicators about who else will be
involved in the decision making process
• Craft your solution to address the
customer’s stated business needs
• Acknowledge where your recommended
solution is a good fit/where it is not
