In Solution Selling you need to be comfortable with sales cycles that can sometimes take years to furnish any reward; you will be selling solutions with high sales values, we're talking in the millions which also means you should expect a high reward.
You will have to know your clients very well, decisions on products of this value are usually made in the boardroom so you will have to be someone who has seasoned experience selling and presenting at that level.
Sales is hard, especially in our clients context, you will need to be a hunter, a great key accounts manager and continuously pushing yourself to achieve greater and greater excellence.
The sky literally is the limit. If you have a proven track record in a similar space and feel that you are up for this challenge, then you know what to do.
