In today’s episode of Aligned, our host Sean talks with the Sales Evangelist, Donald Kelly, to discuss late-stage sales, self-help, and five application models that you can apply to late-stage selling.


  • In any B2B process, you are able to include B2C in the process. 
  • According to Mckinsey 99% of B2B buyers said they are willing to spend $50,000 on self-help. You’ve got to start implementing self-help in the B2B world. 
  • Make promises around things like service. Remember it’s not about the price. 
  • Do a testimonial that is focused on only delivering information that is safe and matters to late-stage prospects. 
  • Give a taste of early access and let your prospects know what it would be like to be your customer. 
  • Utilize consultative selling tools.
