Customers whip out the money objection because they don't know what else to say.  It's the most convenient way to get you to back off. The money objection creates a protective barrier around the customer so they can hide from making a decision or from telling you the truth. When you start buying into a customer's money story, they have effectively sold you. They sold you on why they cannot buy what you’re selling.  Avoid getting caught up in their money banter, because it's a black hole. By Liz Wendling

The subscription-based economy is coming, if not here already.  Software providers are especially focusing sales efforts away from the "transaction” model, to longer term focused “customer relationship” models.  The best example of this concept today is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business. The SaaS financial community developed sophisticated metrics to measure pertinent activities that help the business grow. By Dan King
