The 7 Steps to a Value Proposition That SELLS
Brainstorming a 1-line value prop rarely results in a message that is extendable across communications platforms, and is buyer-focused. Focusing on just a tag line or elevator pitch short circuits developing a Value Prop Platform that is both complete and flexible enough for marketing content and sales conversations.

Rethinking Sales Compensation
The goal of sales compensation is to produce optimal sales performance and drive business results. Yet less than 9 percent of U.S. companies believe their sales compensation plan consistently drives precise selling behavior. This results in companies wasting hundreds of billions of dollars and failing to achieve their business objectives.
Harvard Business Schoolís Frank Cespedes has looked closely at sales compensation and has discovered why so many companies have sales compensation plans that donít work. He has found that companies often buy into conventional wisdom, which holds that: ..... Money is the only motivator ..... Comp plans must be simple ..... We pay for results, not process.
However, these assertions are false, can be damaging, and need to be reexamined. Compensation is just one part of strategic sales performance management; without the link to a bigger strategic plan, even the best compensation plans wonít pay off.
On February 23, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Cespedes will share insights from his study of sales compensation, describe why so many companies make mistakes with sales compensation, and provide practical advice on linking strategy and sales in a way that produces real business value.
The key is aligning the desired sales behaviors with the organizationís strategy and making your compensation plan drive those behaviors. Join Frank Cespedes and HBR on February 23 to learn how to avoid common sales compensation mistakes and how to create a sales compensation plan that works.
