Selling engineering products and services is not like selling for other businesses. Engineering salespeople often sell to major accounts, the sales process is often long (sometimes years), involving multiple decision-makers (many of whom the salesperson doesn’t know) and some of the fiercest competitors. Even small customers can demand strategic thinking. 

To help readers through the complexities involved this e-book looks at several areas of selling in engineering: Finding the right customers; Sales processes; Managing & planning engineering sales
