What was your biggest W that required the least amount of work?

Working in sales can be a tough slog at the best of times but sometimes an opp from the gods just falls right into your lap.


Tell me about your biggest W that required little to no work and what it was worth to you? $$$


A colleague once had a deal close in 3 days because their other data provider got hacked and they needed a solution immediately. Obviously as a sales guy he saw the 'compelling reason to act' and basically put a premium on every single line item. Prospect paid without fuss and he made his yearly target there and then (about $75,000 commission).

I started a new job. My first call with a current client he just complained that our product was not fulfilling his needs. But he just had the wrong product. I explained him the situation. That evening he signed the contract for 3years (10% higher contract value).
