Each one of us has a unique way by which we absorb information and learn. Our individual decision-making processes (heuristics) are based on our unique personality types. Some people like fact-based information to help make-up their minds, while others prefer anecdotal evidence. Some like lots of detailed information while others prefer the 50,000-foot view.

Understanding your buyer’s heuristics (decision-making process) can make the difference between winning and losing deals. By understanding how your buyer’s process information you can adjust the way you present the information and by doing so you are able to convey your value propositions over those of your competitors.

A real-life case of personalizing sales and winning the deal

One of our clients recently won a contract by consulting xiQ’s personality insights to personalize presentations, of the same proposal, to two different decision-makers in the same company. By gauging the heuristics of each decision-maker, xiQ’s client was able to modify their proposal presentation for each buyer – highlighting what each decision maker was interested in and in a manner that each decision maker could clearly understand.
