Keeping an eye on the competition
Chapter 8 discusses Business Contact Manager, the business application
that you can use to track potential sales opportunities; this chapter
focuses on what goes into making an actual sale. You start by creating quotes
and fulfilling orders. Then, once you have the customer’s dollar in your hot
little fist, you find various ways to keep your customer happy — and (hope-
fully) coming back for more! Finally, as much as you’d probably like to ignore
them, your competitors are often lurking in the background, just dying to
take one — or all — of your customers away from you. This chapter helps
you deal with those demons as well.
Selling with the Sales
