Consultative salespeople sell more advertising! Most media companies sell advertising one of two ways. You can sell harder, by pushing the “product of the month” to anyone who will listen. Or you can take the consultative sales approach by focusing instead on your advertiser’s needs and business goals. Advertisers must first think of your sales executives as problem solvers...trusted advisers who know more, and care more about their business than all of the other media salespeople.
