ACADEMY: Sales Masterclass: The Art of Storytelling as Competitive Advantage

SNAPSHOT INTERVIEW Sales Masterclass: The Art of Storytelling as Competitive Advantage

I see that accelerators and other startup programs are teaching you how to pitch to investors when it’s not only about the pitch, it’s about finance and accounting and building relationships. However, there is a skill which is key to make your business growing which is getting paid customers.

How do you get paid customers to use your innovative solutions?

This is about the art of selling, storytelling and commercialization… and it’s a new science that we use everyday even if we didn’t notice. You sell ideas, you sell projects to get funded by the senior management team, you sell research results to industry and you sell solutions from your innovative projects.

You can do this by nature, doing it anyway, or you can learn to do it correctly (because you are doing it anyway).

This is why I called Cristina Elena Penciuc MSc, MBA who is my friend and a super expert on commercialization to give every month a masterclass about sales and commercialization.

This month, we kickoff with the art of storytelling. If you want to learn to do better your already sales mindset, but better. You have to become premium member at COLLABWITH, yes this is the only option, because this is only for premium members. They have to have an advantage.

Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell. How do you get paid customers to use your innovative solutions?
