How to get deals done faster
The economy is toast; it’s taking longer and longer to get a deal done, says small business expert Pavlo Phitidis (founder of Aurik Business Accelerator).
What took six weeks a few years ago is now taking 12 to 16 weeks.
What took three months now typically takes nine months, if not a year.
To get deals done, you have to sell across three domains:
Product value propositions
Mindset value propositions
Economic value propositions
Missing out on one of them will double the time it takes you to do your deal, warns Phitidis.
