Oh Boy! Keenan’s Done It Again
“From relationships, to closing, from over-coming objections to negotiating price, he’s busted all the sales myths that actually create the very problems that salespeople so desperately want to avoid. In his typical in-your-face style, Keenan has nailed the buying process – and how selling is something for you to do with buyers, not to them.”
There’s a hole in your sales education, a set of important concepts you’ve never been taught. Stop the old school sales tactics and enter the new sales profession.
No salesperson should remain stuck in a current state of useless pitches and boring meetings or watch hard-earned opportunities disappear overnight, never to resurface again. No sales leader should watch their team scramble frantically to close deals by the end of the quarter. That kind of selling and sales life just sucks. Gap selling makes things better. Imagine a future state where you’re an influencer, not a clown, where the pipeline is full and predictable, and where you feel confident and in control of every sale. That future state is all yours when you learn to gap sell. This methodology gives you access to everything you need to know to play the game of sales well and to win at every level.
By the time you’re done, you’ll understand:
how properly assessing the gap drives the entire sales process,
from negotiating price to overcoming objections,
to addressing blockers,
to handling the competition,
to preventing leads from going dark,
to the close.
Gap Selling is straight fire!!!! I've burned through pens. Haven't underlined, highlighted, and written this many notes since university.
This book is relevant across industries, positions, career stages, and life situations. Be a giver, be an expert, and be a leader. Read this book...you’ll be glad you did!

I just finished reading GAP SELLING. It is the best book I have read for sales professionals. It is focused on truly helping the customer solve problems and not on how to meet your sales goals. What a concept!
If you are in sales or sales management, following the Gap Selling methodology will help you qualify (or disqualify) opportunities faster, handle objections better, mitigate buyer's remorse, and of course most importantly, sell more.

No matter your sales experience, this book is jam-packed with actionable advice, specific examples, great analogies, and a step-by-step breakdown of how gap selling works - all delivered with Keenan's "in-your-face" and "no-bullshit" teaching style. Thank you Keenan for 220 pages of wisdom and great storytelling.

Have you seen the emails, voice messages, and LinkedIn messages salespeople are leaving these days? Seriously, ask any buyer what he or she thinks about the messages coming out of sales and marketing and they’ll tell you…It’s crap!
Because sales and marketing teams are unknowingly obsessed with selling from their perspective. Creating messages filled with we, our, us, and I. They are overly product and company-centric. Buyers don’t care! Buyers are selfishly motivated and understanding how to capitalize on that motivation is how you capture the attention of today’s buyer inundated with constant sales pitches from all angles.
