Part 2. Ultimate framework to create and deliver a winning 🚀 sales pitch to help you close more deals.

I hope you had an awesome week!

Last week, I received a question and a request for help on "how to deliver his sales pitch." I realized that I wrote about how to write and create, but I missed the delivery part.

So, we will cover this question in this week's newsletter.

Next week, I will share best practices on sales forecasting and explain why every business, CEO, sales leader, and sales team should learn how to do sales forecasting.

Let’s dive in.

1. First Present to the Right People.

It is crucial to ensure that the decision-makers are present.

If the decision-makers are not present, it is best to reschedule the meeting. There is no point in presenting to individuals who are not authorised to make decisions. Politely inform your clients that you don't want to waste their time and emphasise the importance of having "everyone" who needs to understand your proposal present.

This will ensure that your pitch is heard by the right people and increase the likelihood of a successful outcome.

2. Present at the Right Amount of Time.

This event is important not only to you but also to your prospects and clients. It is a presentation of your proposed recommendation that will positively impact and gain huge benefits for their business.

If they have not allocated enough time, politely decline and suggest rescheduling.

3. Be Clear not Clever.

  • Use bullet points and keep it concise.

  • Less is more.

No one reads a 10-page proposal, especially the CEO. If you need to add a lot of details, then make them supporting documents that they can easily refer to.

Here is a template: Proposal Template.pdf



4. No Surprises

Your proposal should not be a surprise, and you should have verbally discussed and validated your approach, the range of your pricing, the required resources, and the time to complete the project during qualifying.


5. Your Sales Pitch is to Enable a Decision

Lastly, remember that the purpose of your proposal is to solve your client’s problem.


Presenting the solution is for your client to have all the information to make a decision.


As a young account manager, one of my biggest mistakes was not setting clear meeting outcomes from the start.


We present. They decide.


At the start of the presentation, You can say something like,

"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to present our proposal. We assume you are counting on us to provide enough information to decide whether our solution makes sense to you. You will say -Let's do it! Or if it does not make sense to us, we will pass.

Is this what you are expecting as well?

Or if you know you are under a competitive bid, you can say.

We appreciate the opportunity to present our proposal. We understand that you have three excellent offers and that selecting the right provider is crucial for your company.

Would it be fair to ask for candid feedback after our presentation regarding whether we fulfilled your expectations or if another provider has a better proposal?

I hope this answers how to execute a winning sales pitch, and I would appreciate hearing from you.

What do you think? How do you deliver your winning sales pitch?
