The Prospecting for Engineers Manual

(This is sales prospecting, metaphorically panning for gold, not literally)

The prospecting for engineeers manual

A complete guide for any engineering, scientific and technology company wanting to increase sales fast at low or no cost. It teaches you everything you need to be successful at winning new clients for technical products and services.

92 A4 (US letter size) pages, many illustrations.

Sales-led companies (most of them in non-techie sectors) use prospecting as their standard way of developing business because it is simple and has been proven effective over decades. But very few technical organisations have followed this example. That's a shame because the method works for any activity and it can deal with some otherwise difficult problems: 

  • If your business has times when there's too much work and others when there isn't enough, prospecting can regulate the workflow and make it more manageable.

  • It can improve the profitability of the jobs you win and increase the proportion of quotes that turn into orders.

  • Competent prospecting gives you a potent advantage in competitive markets.

The reason 'techie' companies don't do much prospecting is mostly because they don't realise its potential and they are deterred by an inaccurate view of what it entails.
If you have been reluctant to start prospecting, I sympathise. There was a time when the idea had little appeal for me, but after having done many years of it, I've changed my mind completely. It really does work extremely well and if you go about it professionally, It's not hard.
I won't wish you good luck, because if ever there was a field where It's true, in prospecting, you make your own. This manual explains how.

Comments about the Selling for Engineers manuals             

I recently downloaded your book Selling for Engineers, which I found very useful.

I'd like to get a copy of "Sales Prospecting for Engineers" .

(His company policy doesn't permit me to say who he is or the corporation he works for, but when you think of the oldest and biggest computer company in the world, which one comes to mind?)

Dear Mr. Seviour

I have just read your two books, "Selling for Engineers" and "How to Create Powerful Technical Sales Literature". I found them both full of extremely wise pointers and comments. I believe the principles presented by the books are absolutely right!

Congratulations on the books.

Dear Robert,

We were delighted with the manuals.  

At our last marketing meeting I said that I was so pleased that I would be getting in touch with you. It was the realisation that you are not a large company but a small company that has put an awful lot of effort into a very good product. 

I took your manuals into the first marketing meeting and left it with them. At the second review meeting the Production Director found them so good that he couldn"t put them down.  

The conscience consideration (we could have quite easily put it through the automatic copier and then sent them back to you with a note saying we are not interested) was not allowed by virtue of the fact that they were so good and we were delighted with them.  

When you are driving a company forward some tools are useful and some are essential. These manuals are not only good value for money but they fill all the gaps we have been looking for.

"I recently read a book entitled Prospecting for Engineers by Robert Seviour. It was written in simple, plain English and made a lot of sense from a practical point of view (totally the opposite to a lot of theoretical business books I have tried to read). I got the impression he is a very, practical, down to earth sort of guy."  


Mark Robinson, Managing Director, Starret Precision Optical Ltd.
