Ignite Your Sales Strategy:
A Field Guide to Accelerating your Pipeline
by Steve Gielda and Kevin Jones
It’s time to uncover the secrets you need to beat your competition, win more opportunities and accelerate your revenue– without ever questioning yourself again!
You’re about to take your sales strategy to the next level by adopting exclusive, simple but heavy-hitting tools that have been 100% proven to give your strategic thinking and strategic planning the boost they need.
But perhaps best of all, you’ll never have to fill out another “opportunity planner” or unnecessary paperwork again!
Is today the day you start challenging your assumptions so you can accelerate your key opportunities through the sales pipeline quicker?
The choice is yours…
As a salesperson, you’ve chosen a career path that’s rife with heavy competition, customers who sometimes just won’t bite and sales training programs that leave you with nothing but sleepy eyes, forms that your managers rarely discuss with you and useless sales strategies that you’ve already tried countless times– to no avail.
Often, you’re left with one lingering question that you just can’t shake…
What’s the point?!
On one end of the spectrum, you’re met with your low-performing peers: folks who always just seem to eke on by, closing an opportunity every once in a while– and hardly caring enough to do even that much.
On the other end, you have your high-performing counterparts to contend with: those top performers who seem like they don’t have to lift a finger to surpass quota after quota– leaving you feeling like the unseen, unheard and underperforming middle child of your sales team.
You’re still hitting your numbers.
You’re still winning a handful of your opportunities.
But you’re also losing just as many of them.
You still have room to grow.
And most of all…
You still want to grow.
You’re still searching for the frameworks, tools and processes you need to develop a sales strategy for each unique opportunity in each of your unique accounts.
Today, that search is over.
Once you do, you’ll be able to:
- Eliminate the pressures and anxiety that come with closing on those high-pressure, high-value sales opportunities
- Stop making common assumptions within the critical milestones of each phase of the sales process
- Accelerate your pipeline revenue
- Implement the exclusive tools used by renowned, top salespeople among a wide range of industries
- Ensure that every prospective opportunity that presents itself is approached with discipline and focus– not just through relying on discounts and blind faith that you’ll win
- Determine the buying factors that impact each opportunity
- Develop a consistent and repeatable framework for strategic planning
- And far, far more!
Sales success won’t sit around waiting for you.

I read Ignite Your Sales Strategy and it provides sound discussion supporting the essence and spirit of following your company’s sales process. I like the contrast between Susan and Mike. It works to show the differences of process and strategic opportunity planning between the average performer and the top performer. It is an easy and great read – Well done!
