When it comes to change in our business, the cliches are numerous. We all know change is a process, not an event. But the only thing we know for sure is that change is constant. In sales, specifically media sales, the landscape changes hourly, it seems.

The RAB’s 7 Steps to Selling Success haven’t changed, they’ve become more sophisticated and even more demanding. Unfortunately, what hasn’t changed is the amount of time in a day.
