Sales Plays – What?
 Sales Play
– A sales play is a point-in-time revenue driving effort focused on helping you, our Business Partners,
sell targeted IBM products and offerings/solutions in selected markets under specific circumstances.
Sales plays augment the general offering resources already available in a sales kit (which we create
for EVERY offering as a complete set of enablement assets by offering) by packaging more specific
assets like education, competitive information and market analysis. Because sales plays usually
have a shorter lifecycle they tend to be changed or refreshed every 3-12 months. Your regional IBM
teams highlight the prioritized sales plays in quarterly communications -- teleconference calls, faceto-face meetings, or e-mail distributions
Note: A sales play is not an incentive or promotion
 Quick Reference Guide (QRG)
– A one-page overview that provides high-level information about an offering, solution or sales play,
including an understanding of the quantifiable value proposition both for the Business Partner and
their customers
