THE MEDMEN SHOW - Everything that people get wrong with Economic Buyers - Episode #6


06-10-2023 • 7 mins

Attention to detail is needed when dealing with the Economic Buyer. You don’t want to under-qualify them, but over-qualifying them can do equal damage! In this episode, the Med Men take a close look at what people typically get wrong with the Economic Buyer.

Andy and Pim talk about the need to accept change - that as circumstances and deals change, so will the Economic Buyer. But, if you keep your wits about you, you can still find success with the Economic Buyer.

If you have any questions about identifying or engaging with the Economic Buyer, or any suggestions of what you’d like to see the Med Men cover next, make sure to comment below!

Until next time - cheers!
