There are salespeople (inexperienced ones I think) who early in the sales call will talk about price. In the first 10 minutes of the sales call they will say, “I think I can save you some money on your (product). Can I get you a quote? Quoting prices isn’t selling. In fact, you don’t even need a human being to quote prices today.
The only way you can quote prices early in the sales process is when you’ve already uncovered a significant customer problem and your customer asks you to buy your product. That’s when your customer asks you for the price and you’re free to quote it.
