  27. 27. © 2016 Josh Hill marketingrockstarguides.com Part 1: Commercial Insight “A Commercial Insight teaches the customer something new that reframes how they think about their own business, and leads uniquely back to you as a supplier. When crafted well, Commercial Insights lead customers to value— and pay for—the incremental performance you provide. It gives customers a surprising rationale, in their own business terms, to value that incremental performance. That’s why Commercial Insights are at the heart of the Challenger approach.” – Patrick Spenner, Co-author Source: CEB; Forbes; emphases added.

  29. 29. © 2016 Josh Hill marketingrockstarguides.com SPIN questioning to reach the commercial insight • Situation: how do you manage your email list now? How do you track success? • Problem: what's the biggest problem you have when explaining results? Was it hard to train the team to use this? • Implication: if training marketers is hard and time consuming, what does that mean for your campaigns? If your CEO wants more leads, but you are having problems tying your efforts to spend, what does that mean? • Need-Payoff: why is having a clear email to lead conversion ratio important to you? If you could see how marketing impacts the pipeline, how would that help you achieve revenue targets?

Is the story told in a logically compelling way? Do the chapters match The Hero’s Journey? Is your understanding of the buyer enough that you uncovered Commercial Insight? Do you know your audience’s Current Belief System/World? Do you know how to break the audience out of their Current World or Frame? Do you understand when someone may be ready to speak to Sales during the story? When can you salesperson become the Mentor or Guide in the story (rather than email?) Does your system recognize Mobilizers automatically? Is your salesperson trained to recognize Mobilizers vs Talkers? Who is heeding the call to a new world? Is your story insulting the audience?
