Gap Selling: Getting the Customer to Yes: How Problem-Centric Selling Increases Sales by Changing Everything You Know About Relationships, Overcoming Objections, Closing and Price
Dan Knowlton recommended this book during his episode (listen to Dan here) –
“There’s a really good book called Gap Selling from a guy called Keenan; that book really helped me understand the importance of asking the right questions to understand that root cause, because someone may tell you what they think their problem is, but that’s not their problem.
Until you dive deeper and really unpack the situation, they’re in and their future state — it breaks it down into current state, future state and figuring out the gap — and then you can capitalise on understanding that gap to sell your service.
So that’s a really good book that’s helped me, that again helped me understand the importance of asking those questions and having that kind of conversation at the start of the process.”
