Selling the Price Increase: The Ultimate B2B Field Guide for Raising Prices Without Losing Customers by Jeb Blount

About the Book:

A practical guide for successfully navigating the single greatest growth and profit improvement opportunity for B2B enterprises: price increases

The payoff for implementing price increases without losing customers is massive! Effective price increase campaigns are far more effective at boosting topline revenue and generating profits than acquiring new customers.

The problem is that price increase initiatives, whether broad-based or targeted to specific accounts, strike fear and anxiety into the hearts of sales professionals and account managers who are tasked with selling them to their customers.

Approaching customers with price increases sits at the tip top of the pantheon of things salespeople hate to do because they fear that raising prices will reduce sales volume or open the door to competitors.

Yet when sold effectively, customers accept price increases, remain loyal, and often buy even more.

In Selling the Price Increase: The Ultimate B2B Field Guide for Raising Prices Without Losing Customers, celebrated sales trainer Jeb Blount reveals the strategies, tactics, techniques, and frameworks that allow you to successfully master price increase initiatives.

From crafting effective price increase messages to protecting hard-won relationships, handling common objections, and making the case for the value you deliver, this comprehensive guide walks you through each step of the price increase sales process.

In each chapter, you’ll find practical exercises designed to help you master the Selling the Price Increase system. As you dive into these powerful insights, and with each new chapter, you'll gain greater and greater confidence in your ability to successfully engage customers in price increase conversations.

You’ll learn:

  • How to navigate multiple price increase scenarios: broad-based, targeted, non-negotiable, negotiable, defending, presenting and asking
  • The eight price increase narratives and three drivers of customer price increase acceptance
  • How to neutralize and get past the five big price increase fears and anxieties
  • How to avoid the big mistakes that trigger resentment and drive customers into the arms of your competitors
  • The 9-Box Risk-Profile Framework for targeting accounts for price increases
  • A repeatable process for confidently approaching price increase conversations
  • The Five-Step Price Increase Messaging Framework
  • Proven frameworks for reducing resistance and handling price increase objections
  • How to negotiate profitable outcomes with high-risk profile accounts
  • Winning strategies for coaching and leading successful price increase initiatives

Following in the footsteps of his blockbuster bestsellers Fanatical Prospecting, Sales EQ, Objections, Inked, and Virtual Selling, Jeb Blount's Selling the Price Increase puts the same strategies employed by his clients—a who's who of the world's most prestigious organizations—right into your hands.

Selling the Price Increase is an essential handbook for sales professionals, account managers, customer success teams, and other revenue generation leaders looking for a page-turning and insightful roadmap to navigating the essential—and nerve-wracking—world of price increases.
