How To “Add Value” With Bob Burg

Bob Burg joins Will on this episode of the Salesman Podcast to discuss what “value” actually is to the end consumer and how salespeople can leverage it to close more deals.





What is “value” anyway?!

The show is kicked off with explaining what a ‘Go-Giver’ is and why moving to a giving mindset is critical for salespeople who want to crush it in the internet age.

“Price a dollar amount, it’s finite, it is what it is. Value on the other hand is the relative worth or the desirability of something”

The show is wrapped up with Bob and Will looking into the future of sales to dissect how it will change when everyone has a 3D printer in their home.

Bob and Will also cover –

  • Why you should be attempting to make your customers feel amazing
  • What “adding more value” actually means in the real world
  • How you can become a ‘go-giver’
  • What the future holds for the sales professional
  • Why “the most valuable gift you have to offer, is yourself”
