Preempt the objection, "My boss won't authorize anything." Strategy 4 of 7
Objection # 7 of 85: My boss won't authorize anything.
When does it usually occur? Initial contact introducing your self in sales and after the presentation.
PREEMPTION STRATEGY 4 of 7: Ask how they could work something like this into the budget.
For example, “How does your budgeting process work?” Or, “Several of my clients started by identifying who the stakeholders would be by which departments would receive the greatest benefits and the biggest returns. Can we start there? Some of the people/departments that typically are involved are ______, because _____. How does that fit here?” Continue this process until you identify who else you’ll need to contact. Next, ask the questions about timing, the information needed, meetings to set, who could help, and so on.
