In fact, the current approach of consultative selling (with a focus on their needs) is currently working for many customers. For these customers the seller should sell so, as it has worked so far well, increasing sales, there is no need to change the sales process! There are three ingredients that can cause both buyer and seller, to switch from an advisory to a cooperative mode: the two organisations (buyers, sellers) already have a successful and trusting business relationship. Each organization the other organization needed to ensure success. There is a risk (skewed) for an organization (seller), which could potentially hurt the other organization (“purchaser”). If these three conditions are present, it is to be in the best interest of both organizations, collaborative partner. Because of her confidence full relationship, it should be relatively easy for the seller to address the need for flexibility and common solutions to problems.

An example from my practice: I myself gives as a negotiator between a car dealership and a resident painting company. So the dealership XYZ perform approximately 40% of the painting has made on the average at the painting operation. After intensive and cooperative discussions we were able to make following WIN-WIN situation: the dealership will take 90% of paint in the paint operation in future and get a discount of 5% instead of 3% for immediate payment within 5 days. At payment bottlenecks we have an extended payment terms from 6 weeks agreed. This approach has brought about 40% more sales with the dealership the painting operation after six months and the dealership was able to increase the margin in the paint area to 19% as a result. It is to be noted that this partnership can result in mutual benefits also from a different point of view. If an organization to survive today”must fight, can it be easy, that tomorrow the other that’s why fights.
