TIP

Successful salespeople do not sell: they help.  Their attitude is: I can not help you unless I get to see you, and I certainly can’t help you unless you buy something from me.  Successful salespeople really believe that what they do helps the people and clients they do it for.  That’s what makes them so successful and that is also what makes them such high earners.  Money is a by product of this belief system.

Top salespeople believe they are the best at what they do; they believe their company is the best at what it does; and, they believe their products and services are the best.  As a result of this belief and commitment, top salespeople not only feel it is their obligation to make sure clients buy from them, but, truly believe that if they allow a client or prospect to buy from the competition, they have done that client a horrible disservice by allowing them to buy second best.

Tuesday Quick Tip – Selling is All About Odds

Welcome to “The Tuesday Quick Tip.” Every Tuesday, I’ll be publishing, on this blog, a short, 1 to 2 paragraph tip to help you achieve success in your life, business or career.  You can also receive “The Tuesday Quick Tip,” by email, along with our weekly videos and a free “Time Management Workbook,” when you sign up for a free subscription to my email list.

TIP

In sales the odds are always against you.  More people will say “No,” than “Yes,” whether you’re calling for an appointment or trying to close a sale.  Successful salespeople understand their odds of success and constantly try to bring those odds down.

For example, have you ever done any fundraising?  If you have, you know that if you’re looking for $25 or $50 contributions, you send out a post card, email or post it on facebook.  Why: because the market for that size contribution is huge and you only need a ½ of 1 percent return. If you were looking for a two, three or five hundred dollar donation, you’d make a phone call since that market is much smaller, dictating at least a 10% return.  But, if you wanted a ten thousand or fifty thousand dollar donation you’d make sure you got in front of that person, because that market is miniscule and you better close 1 out 2, or 1 out of 3.  Here’s the question: What rate of success are you looking for in your sales effort: 5 out of 100, 1 out of 10 or 1 out of 2?  That should tell you the best way to approach your market.

If you’re interested in learning how to beat the odds and increase your chances of getting the appointment, attend my 90 minute webinar: Prospecting Skills to Increase Your Sales, on Thursday, August 18th at 12 Noon Eastern Time.  For more information and to sign up CLICK HERE.

Tuesday Quick Tip – Control the Conversation

Welcome to “The Tuesday Quick Tip.” Every Tuesday, I’ll be publishing, on this blog, a short, 1 to 2 paragraph tip to help you achieve success in your life, business or career.  You can also receive “The Tuesday Quick Tip,” by email, along with our weekly videos and a free “Time Management Workbook,” when you sign up for a free subscription to my email list.

TIP

When asking for the appointment on the phone, I believe in giving the prospect one choice; ie, “Can we get together next Tuesday at 3,” rather the more traditional two choices (“Would Tuesday at 3 or Wednesday at 4 be better for you?”).  My reasoning being twofold: 1. Giving the prospect only one choice creates a perception of a very busy salesperson.  Believe me, nobody wants to deal with a salesperson who has time on his hands: Do you?  And 2, should the prospect say “No,” to Tuesday at 3, I still have Wednesday at 4 up my sleeve.  Why reveal all your choices if you don’t have to.

If you’re interested in learning how to control the conversation and increase your chances of getting the appointment, attend my 90 minute webinar: Prospecting Skills to Increase Your Sales, on Thursday, August 18th at 12 Noon Eastern Time.  For more information and to sign up CLICK HERE.
