Value Selling Adoption & Impact Report

The research, surveying over one hundred B2B technology organizations, demonstrates that sales representatives employing value selling techniques consistently outperform those using traditional, product-focused methods. The findings are compelling: over 80% of surveyed organizations reported measurable improvements in sales performance due to value selling. Specifically, adopting companies and sales reps saw an average 48% increase in win rates, a 35% rise in deal sizes, and a 25% decrease in sales cycle durations.

Tom Pisello, also known as the ROI Guy and Founder of the Enterprise Value Collective, as well as a Partner at Genius Drive, highlighted:

“In an era where 70% of sellers are missing their quotas, this research confirms that value selling not only counters this trend, but significantly enhances sales outcomes, enabling sellers to secure more, larger deals at a quicker pace.”

Despite these advantages, the adoption of value selling remains low, with only 19% of sales representatives regularly implementing this strategy. This gap underscores a substantial opportunity for businesses to elevate their sales performance through widespread adoption of value selling.

Alex Smith, Co-founder of Cuvama, remarked,

“It’s clear from the research that there are few more impactful things for a B2B Sales team to focus on than improving their sales team’s adoption of value selling. 

This means focusing on ensuring that Value selling enablement and platforms are focused on ease of use and sales reps as the primary users. Those who have got this right have seen huge uplifts in their sales performance”

The research indicates that the most successful adopters of value selling have invested in an orchestrated approach across three critical areas: Support, Enablement, and Automation. Leveraging this approach, with each 10% boost in seller adoption of value selling  yields a significant 10% boost in revenue. Getting all customers engaged with a value-approach can result in a 2x boost to revenue overall.

“In order to get value into more customer engagements, it takes a well orchestrated  approach of specialist support, automation and enablement, which this research highlights so well”, says Ken Powell, CRO for fintech firm K1x.

“Get it right and you can help customers build extreme confidence in the purchase, and significantly exceed your growth goals, which we have done by leveraging this research’s recommended approach.”
