How to identify the real decision maker: When it comes to pitching a deal, it is important to establish that a lead is qualified and that you are talking to the decision maker of the business. The decision maker can vary depending on the type of products or services that you are selling.
Many people’s inclination is to go to the top floor to look for the decision maker. While the president or owner oversees the entire company, it doesn’t mean that they are the audience for your pitch. For example, if you are selling office supplies, the decision maker that you are looking for would likely be the office manager, and not the president of the company.
When you pitch the wrong person and they try to relay your value proposition to the ultimate decision maker, key points can often be lost in a game of corporate telephone. By pitching to the wrong person, you decrease your likelihood of making the sale.
