Many of us are highly distracted by the uncertainties in the world and the impact on their businesses. Are there only threads or are there even opportunities? Here are some thoughts how to approach 2017 – if you are not prepared to waste the year. Why don’t you apply the same risk management techniques to your sales pipeline which are used by professionals to manage their portfolio of assets? You have the freedom of choice to either hope for things getting better or to plan for growth and take action now.

How to sell into a shrinking market
The financial service industry has gone through the most significant changes ever. Regulatory changes and cost pressure allow for little breathing space in terms of traditional business development. Current surveys show that on average 2/3 of overall technology spend in the industry is used for “run the bank”. From the remaining third – the so called “change the bank” budget about 90% are needed for regulatory requirements.
The market is consolidating in terms of size, staff and budgets. Does that mean you cannot sell into that industry? No – of course you can sell but you have to do it in a different way. Sales cycles have become longer. Business decisions are not based on features and functions anymore but on real business benefits and impact on the cost-income-ratio. New sourcing models like managed services and SaaS are useful to create striking business cases. It has become more complex and more professional – and more rewarding as it allows differentiating. We know how to do it and we love it!

Managing large sales forces has never been easy for multinational companies. Increasing competition, margin pressure, the rise of digital and proliferating channels have added a significant layer of complexity. Already today nearly a third of all Business-To-Business (B2B) purchases are done digitally while customers use an average of six channels for prospecting, forcing sales leaders to rethink how they source leads, manage pipelines, and sell more effectively.
I was in New York City last week and got – once again – energized by the vibes of this dynamic city. An American friend of mine provided me with my first Uber experience.
Of course you have heard about this mega successful business concept that is so revolutionary and disruptive for the taxi and transport business. The experience was both, very convenient and inexpensive. The cars were clean, the drivers friendly and the fares more than competitive. All customer interaction took place on the Uber app on the mobile phone.
The following day I did sign up for my own Uber account.
