Salesperson Wimp-Out: Cutting the Price "Boss, if we could just cut our price 15%, we have a chance at the business." Tired of hearing your salespeople say that? The problem isn't your pricing, it's your people. Somewhere they've learned that a good way to compete is to cut the price, and they've gotten away with it. Your job as a professional manager is to train your salespeople to compete, plant their feet, and win the business…on something other than price. Train your salespeople to keep customers loyal to you regardless of price because your company offers something the customer will have to give up if he or she buys on price alone.
