Just a thought…..

Rather than telling your prospects what they need, consultative selling is an investigative approach by which prospects are engaged with thought provoking questions that help them identify their own pain points.

Ultimately, with a consultative selling approach, prospects will steer themselves into making their own decision. The role of the salesperson is to be empathetic and helpful; you should enable the prospect by providing them with the information they need to make an educated buying decision.
