Sandler Enterprise Selling

A systematic approach to winning enterprise business

The Challenges of Enterprise Selling

Selling into large, complex and demanding organisations can be incredibly rewarding and lead to high growth, or it can be an expensive, time-consuming nightmare. You’re dealing with multiple layers of decision makers, complex contracts, and long-cycle negotiations. Even a seasoned sales team can be taken by surprise working on an enterprise opportunity. In order to be successful, you have to win the business and then exceed  expectations on delivery, in order to expand the relationship over time. 

Enterprise sales as a business objective sounds simple enough, but it presents unique opportunities and challenges.


Does your team struggle with:

  • Longer and more expensive sales cycles?
  • Complex sales or delivery that require carefully orchestrated implementation?
  • Team selling and achieving a high degree of cooperation?

Knowledge is power. Know what you are up against

Today's performers are always prepared. It's how they run the game.

Sandler Enterprise Selling Solutions

Sandler Enterprise Selling provides the strategy, processes, and tools to keep sales opportunities moving forward to favorably predictable conclusions.


  • Stage One: Territory & Account Planning

    In major accounts, there are a lot of things that need to happen before you approach a prospect or client account about a specific opportunity. The critical first step is planning.


  • Stage Two: Opportunity Identification

    This stage gives you the tools you need to prospect effectively, engage with targets, communicate with them to deliver valued, compelling insights and set mutual expectations for the sales process.


  • Stage Three: Qualification

    You will learn how to choose which deals to pursue based on whether it makes sense for both sides to proceed. Ongoing analysis helps you strengthen both your offensive and defensive strategies.


  • Stage Four: Solution Development

    Once you’ve earned the right to move ahead with the preparation of a proposal, your solution should uniquely qualify you to win the business by aligning directly to the account’s needs and pains.


  • Stage Five: Proposing & Advancement

    In this stage, you will identify and execute the team activities involved in finalising the proposal, ensuring that the voice of the customer reverberates throughout the document in order to drive decisions and action.


  • Stage Six: Service Delivery

    After all the time, money and effort you invested to pursue this opportunity, it is now time to focus on service excellence and delivering effectively. Internal and external communication is critical during this final phase.
