What makes a good sales pitch? If you’re selling to the corporate market, let me be frank with you: nothing. There is nothing in the whole wide world that will make a good sales pitch.
Corporate decision-makers despise pitches. Everyone they meet spouts platitudes about their wonderful products, incredible technology and exceptional customer service.

They’ll run from you as fast as they can.
So what should you do when you meet a decision-maker? How about sharing a real-life example of how you’ve helped a similar customer achieve his goals? How about talking about how key industry trends are impacting your prospect’s business?
